How to make your Outta This World Outer Space Birthday Card
  1. Fold the piece of black cardstock in half to form the card.  (see photos)

  3. Use small pieces of the sparkly pipe cleaners to make rings on the planets.  Glue into place.  Allow the glue to dry.  Use markers or glitter to decorate the planets, if desired.
