I've waited a year to share today's post with you. Whew…I'm glad I finally get to share this cute idea with you. Last year for the 4th of July, I made up cute snack bags for the whole family to take with us to eat while waiting for the fireworks to begin. We all loved them and I had fun making cute bags for the family. Of course having a yummy snack to eat while we waited didn't hurt either. 😉
I knew last year I wanted to share my idea with you, but of course I had to wait until you were ready. Since it is almost 4th of July, I thought you might be ready for my cute idea. Not only is it cute and yummy, but it is also quick and easy to put together. Umm…perfect for a busy mommy!
To make your own 4th of July snack bags you will need, paper lunch bags, ribbon, and a hole punch. You can add any other embellishments to your bags that you desire. You could also let the kids make and/or decorate their own bags. So many ideas and ways to do the same thing. 🙂
Fold the top of your bag over. That way you can close it when the snacks are inside. If your fireworks are like ours, there is walking involved to get to the site. Having a closed bag will alleviate the dropping of snacks out of the bag and the crying of children who have lost snacks.
With the bag folded over, punch at least two holes across the top. I did 4 this year. I think last year I did 3. It is just your preference.
Fill your bag with your snacks. I filled ours with the 4th of July pretzels I made.
I filled in around the pretzels with the delicious all natural homemade popcorn I showed you how to make earlier this week.
Once you have all your snacks in the bag, weave your ribbon in and out of the holes you punched earlier. Tie the bag shut with a cute tag and bow.
I made the tags you see pictured. You can download them, print them out, and use them on your bags if you like. Download them at the bottom of this post.
My final inspiration was to add a sparkly star to each bag. So stinking cute! Also really quick and easy. Love! ♥
Can't wait for the fireworks and the fun of the 4th of July! Also can't wait to eat our yummy snack bags.
