today we're gonna make a simple and cute party favor for fireworks day coming up.
you think all the 4th of july stuff floating around these days are enough?
yeah me too but we gotta celebrate right?
it just takes a few supplies to get
your red white and blue on.
everything's from jo ann's except for the straws which come from target's dollar spot.
ok here we go.
the cardboard backing is what makes these candy sticks sturdy.
and they fit perfectly on the liners. :)
next grab your glue gun.
only apply the glue to the edge as shown, leaving the silver cardboard alone.
you don't want to close up the liners because you need to do this next:
now grab that glue gun again.
and now all you gotta do is shake shake shake them!
they're kinda like flat maracas.
maracas for independence day.
hey, just stay with me.
if you get tired of all the shaking, just rip the liner and the kids can enjoy the candy inside.
don't like candy?
it would be cute to put a little necklace or glow bracelet in there too instead of candy.
in fact, you can put anything in it except maybe uncle sam.
ok now i'm just being silly.
how about putting a small box of snappits instead?
i think uncle sam would approve!?!
Uh, snappits? What are they? Inspite of my stupidity, I love these!! I'm in the process of decorating for the 4th, and this idea just might come in very handy!! Thanks, again, BBFF, for adding to my ideas! DonaReplyDelete
Lol snappits are those bang pop thingies that come in about a 1 inch box or so and they are little things you throw on the ground that make a snapping banging noise. my son loves them and it was the only kind of firecracker i ever let him use lol! maybe I'll make a snappit crafts just for you my BBFF! and hey you can make a couple of these and use them as centerpieces too if you want. my brain never stops does it? :>ODelete
