When researching Star Wars craft project, it can feel downright overwhelming. I mean, seriously,there are a ton of crafty Star Wars stuff out there. And the one that really stood out was a DIY paper lightsaber made out of a toilet paper roll and glitter card stock paper.
Using Blackberry Vines‘ lightsaber invitation post, I thought it would be great to transform it into a party favor/goody bag. Or one could call it a goody roll…
12″x12″ glitter card stock paper or colored paper/card stock
Aleene’s Tacky Glue and/or double sided tape

Step 1. I took Blackberry’s Vine’s advice and cut the 12″ x 12″ paper in half. Then I
glued taped (with double sided tape) glitter card stock to the toilet paper roll.
Step 2. Here’s where the twist comes. I made a circle, cut the sides to wrap around toilet paper roll.
I glued the edges to the roll.
Step 3. Wrap the bottom of the lightsaber portion to cover the toilet paper roll.(Note: If you like my printed version, please head over to Hometown Betty on Facebook, hit the like button. Then you can request a copy via Facebook message.)
Step 4. Here’s where the lightsabers look similar to Blackberry Vine’s lightsaber invitations. Also, if you look closely, you will see yellow Star Wars font lettering, which says, “Thank you, Jedi Master.” What a great way to say thank you to your young Jedi party guests.
Step 5. I suppose you could leave the party favors as is and just drop in your little trinkets and candy inside. However, I thought it might be helpful to contain the favors inside with a top. I added a secondary circle and glued (or taped) it to another piece of glitter paper 6″ wide.
Gluing colored paper worked well as seen in the photos of the green lightsaber above. But for glitter card stock paper, I had to use double sided tape to create a good seal. (Note: I added the second piece midway to give the illusion of height to the lightsaber.)
Step 6. Voila! Project Complete!
This was fun twist to party favor bags. Adding a secondary lightsaber piece added height to the goody bag without adding space, which means you don’t need to add more goodies into your already plentiful goody bag.
