star wars party food lightsaberyou will need


  • Toilet paper rolls or paper towel rolls
  • 12 x 12 glitter paper
  • 8.5 x 11.5 vellum paper
  • Aluminum foil tape (found at Home Depot)
  • Electric tape in black
  • Buttons
  • Scrapbook embellishments
  • Hot glue gun & sticks
  • Scrapbook adhesive

You can get all the necessary supplies here.

Directions

  1. Print your party invites on vellum paper within a 4" x 5" space. You can print two per vellum sheet.

  2. Trim to 4.5" x 6". (Double check this measurement just to be sure.)
    I started with toilet paper rolls, but decided the paper towel rolls were a little bit easier.

  3. Put a strip of adhesive on each end of the blank side of the vellum. Wrap around paper roll.

  4. Cut your 12" x 12" glitter paper in half (you will have 2 - 6" x 12" pieces.) If using toilet paper rolls, go ahead and roll your glitter paper. I used an left over gift wrapping roll to get the right size. If using a paper towel roll, I left about .5" between the invitation and where I added the glitter paper. This allowed for a little bit longer light saber. Use hot glue to secure the roll.

  5. Next add a 6"strip of the aluminum duct tape to the bottom of the glitter paper tube. Its super shiny, but also wrinkles. I cut a 6" inch strip, then took off the backing and added it to the saber.

  6. To connect the glitter tube to the toilet paper roll, use the electric tape.

  7. To finish it, I added another piece of electrical tape at the base of the toilet paper roll, and buttons made from actual buttons and scrapbooking embellishments.

chewie wookie cookies

This recipe is courtest of Jill at Kitchen Fun with my 3 Sons. Below is a summarized version intended as a back up copy but please click on the link above to view the original post on her site. There are lots of other great recipes and ideas.

star wars birthday party wookie cookiesInstructions

  1. We made these Chewbacca cookies for my sons Stars Wars b-day party. We used Little Debbie Star Crunch cookies, cookie frosting, mini chocolate chips, edible eye balls, and mini heart candies.

  2. We decided to use the Star Crunch cookies because we thought that the crisp rice in the cookie would look like hair and well...they are chewy!. They are round so we shaped them into more of a square. We added our chocolate cookie frosting for the mouth and to attach our edible eyes. We piped more frosting over the top of the eyes. We attached our mini chocolate chip for the nose. We broke mini heart candies in half for the teeth. Pointed side down for the fangs and the rest on the rounded side.

Method

  1. We used chocolate cake, chocolate frosting, chocolate cookie icing, chocolate graham crackers, broken up misc. candy and cookies, large pretzels, 1 green fruit roll up, 1 edible eye ball, and Star Wars figures.

  2. We made our walls with the chocolate graham crackers. We glued each of them together with the cookie icing over lapping them. We set them aside to dry. We made our chocolate cake in the 9x13 pan. We used parchment paper on the bottom for easy release. We needed the cake just a little large for the walls to fit so we broke off 3 small pieces of the graham crackers and stacked those around the whole cake. Worked out great! Then we frosted the whole thing with our chocolate frosting.

  3. We broke up different pieces of cookies and candy that we had around the kitchen and scattered them around the cake. We used black twizzlers, graham crackers, chocolate chips, large pretzels, Star Crunch cookies, etc... We then arranged our washed and cleaned figures to the cake. Leia and Han Solo are holding a large pretzel stick for the pole that was used in the scene. We then placed our graham cracker walls around the sides. We placed Chewbacca at the door and Luke being pulled under by the creature. For the creature we covered half of a pretzel stick with a green fruit roll up. We attached a green jelly bean for his head and our edible eye ball on the jelly bean. We used the rest of the fruit roll up for the creatures leg that is pulling Luke under.

(Adapted from The Star Wars Cookbook by Robin Davis)

Ingredients

  • 1 10-ounce package of refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons cinnamon sugar (we used McCormick brand)
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla

 

Method

  1. Remove the pizza dough from the package and unroll onto a lightly-floured work surface. Brush the melted butter over the pizza dough. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the buttered dough. Roll up on the long side into a log. Pinch the seam to seal well. Cut the log into one-inch thick slices and discard the ends.

  2. Place the slices onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool for five minutes before transferring the rolls to a wire rack to cool for five minutes more. Meanwhile, make the frosting by stirring the milk and powdered sugar into a paste. Add the vanilla and mix well. Frost the tops of the cinnamon rolls. Serve warm.
