8. Paper Fireworks

For each rocket, roll scrapbooking paper into a tube and secure with glue. To make the nose cone, cut a slit to the center of a paper circle; overlap ends and adhere together using glue. Glue a ribbon strip inside the rocket to resemble a fuse, and glue a long dowel inside the tube to support the rocket.
