Patriotic Party Favors

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a fun and quick treat bag for your Fourth of July celebrations! Each year on the Fourth, everyone spends the day, following the parade, at my parent’s house on the lake. After the day in the sun, we head back into town early, to get good seats for the fireworks. The littles, and let’s face it, the big people too, get a bit restless waiting for dusk. So, I thought it would be fun to make little treat bags to keep everyone entertained and happy. The We R Memory Keepers Scallop Goodie Bag Guide helped me put these festive packages together easily!

I started by using the Scallop Goodie Bag Guide to cut a few pieces of food-safe glassine papers. The Guide allows you to tear the paper by simply pulling. It also has a straight-edge for getting crisp folds.

Inside each bag are Pop Rocks candy, licorice, glow bracelets, glow wants, and a pair of ridiculous sunglasses. Lots of fun! I see selfies happening already!

On each bag, I attached a medallion I created with ribbon and a pre-made star burst from the Oh Goodie line.

To get clean cut edges on my ribbon, I used the Ribbon Cutter tool. This tool not only cuts the ribbon, but seals it too. To get the notched ends in the ribbon, I folded it in half before placing it in the tool. The sharper the angle it is placed in the tool, the deeper the notch.
