4th of july candy box

Just like road trips, you have to have candy when you watch the fireworks! I made these cute little milk carton candy boxes for our 2 little rascals. I love how they have the poor spout to dispense the candy and then fold closed. Very handy features when dealing with littles!

{do you spot the washi tape?? love that stuff!}

die cutsI used my Epic 6 Die cutting tool, nesting stars die cut, a Label It die cut, 4×4 Parade alphabet die, and milk carton die cut to create the candy boxes.

How to Make Paper Bunting

I had lots of comments on the mini paper bunting from my 4th of July Mantel.  I strung it on a milk glass plate. {did you know i collect milk glass? you can see more of my milk glass collection here}

How to Make a Paper Bunting

  1. How to Make a Paper BuntingI used the pennant die with my Epic 6 die cutting tool.
  2. Cut out pennants using 5 different pattern papers, preferably cardstock. Scraps work great for this!
  3. Then I sewed across the top of each pennant using a dark blue thread. Make sure to back stitch at the beginning and the end. I hung the bunting across my plate using small glue dots.

    Thanks for sharing your patriotic paper crafts! Every year I have a big 4th of July BBQ and I loved the candy boxes you made so much I went to Lifestyle Crafts and bought the supplies to make them too! I also bought these adorable red, white, and blue patriotic cupcake toppers that will really make my cupcakes stand out. Thanks again for the great 4th of July craft ideas!

    LOVE the mini paper bunting!!! I will probably make these for every holiday. LOL But I am wondering how you held the pieces together, while sewing them? Thanks for the great ideas.
