The 4th of July is this week!! I couldn't not make my candy pouches for the holiday, so I decided to do something really simple and cute. Little flags and stars. These are so easy and fun to make. I love how they turn out too!
This is how I made them:
I took some red, white and blue chocolate candies, sandwich bags, card stock and a glue gun and paper straws.
I cut two pieces of card stock with my paper trimmer. They were 4x6 inches and then I cut an inner rectangle, leaving a 1/2 inch border.
I glued down the sandwich bag to the rectangle. I just put the glue around the edge.
I then glued down the bottom of the top piece, so I could start adding the candies.
I put the candies in and then glued all the edges down. The hot glue melts the plastic so the top and bottom paper glue together.
To one of the flags, I added some fun washi tape.
I glue on some paper straws and that's it! I also made one with a star shape.
Here are some of the other ones that I have done for the other holidays.
