Graphic 45 and Scrapbook Adhesives Blog Hop

I have a pretty darned great project to share with you today (there's even a tute!) and it's all a part of the Graphic 45 & Scrapbook Adhesives Blog Hop happening this entire week.

Hop along with all the links and comment on each of the blogs, then enter to win a great prize pack of Come Away with Me (one of my new favourites) and Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Squares. Graphic 45 will announce a randomly chosen winner this coming Monday, August 4, on their blog

Here are today's hop spots:

And now for my super cool old school papery project.

I took some of that fabulous Come Away with Me and a bunch-o Scrapbook Adhesives, drafted a papery pattern, then smashed them together to create this...

A nifty old school paper rocket ship!

This project started out as a really simple tube sort of rocket… which I hated! Half way though that project I knew it was terrible. I looked at it and sighed. BUT I was determined to make a rocket. A super cool old school rocket! So, I started from scratch and drafted this pattern.


I’m not going to lie, this project IS fiddly. It’ll take some squishing and pushing and bending of paper… but I think the results are totally worth it.

Here are the supplies you'll need:
(By the Sea > Gathering Shells used for the flames)
Scrapbook Adhesives Dodz

Scrapbook Adhesives Adhesive Sheets

Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Squares Dispenser

Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Squares

Sizzix Thinlits #658865 Susan’s Garden Poinsettia

Fine red glitter

Good quality white tacky glue

Rocket template
