DIY PAPER: PAPER WINGS - Costume
Happy Friday! We're making paper costumes for Mardi Gras and I wanted to share with you!
Our children go to a French school where they celebrate, "Carnival." (Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday) This year, our kids wanted to wear animal costumes but, I didn't have time to get out my sewing machine. I started thinking about both my love craft paper and for a way for the kids to personalize a costume themselves. These wings are pure craft-paper and, once constructed, our daughter had so much fun coloring them. I hope you will, too! I think we'll hang them up, as art work, on her bedroom wall once complete. (Great for rainy days, parties and Halloween, too)

DIY PAPER WINGS HOW TO:
See the above photos and illustrations for cutting and assembly instructions.Once the wings are complete:
1) Cut two tubes of wrist sized, paper.
2) Tape these, with paper tape,* to the interior, top of the wings
3) Using the same paper tape, tape the wings together in the middle.I used double layers of tape to adhere these two sides.
(* I prefer matching paper tape but, any strong masking tape will work.)
