    Get a party popper, half fill the bottom bit with cap gun caps, fill the rest with sparkler stuff, put the cardboard thing back on. Rap the outsides with duct tape and then add a fuse through the bottom. Light the fuse. Stand back. Have fun and stay safe.

    Ehs it would be more effective if you put vents into it.
    This had been done before here.

    there is actually a better way of making these which can shove them much much further away. you cut a matchstick head off and place it on the foil and then u use a safety pen or a paper clip in-able 2 form the hole to the end.also if you only use enough foil for about 4 wraps it will fire sooner but make it more acceptable 2 bursting open at the side.
