Paper Firecrackers

The only firecrackers we will be seeing this Fourth of July are these little paper ones.  We are officially under a county wide fire ban so that also means no city fireworks display either.  I decided we had to have something for the little ones so I put these together.  Inside each firecracker there are snappers, sliders and a champagne popper inside a medium Cello Bag.  They were quite simple to put together too.  I used a piece of 4 1/2 in. x 5 1/2 in. DSP with a strip of  white tissue paper snailed to the top.  I then added a piece of Sticky Strip on one side to keep them shut.  The flame is a leaf cut from the leaves die with the edges sponged in Tangerine Tango Ink.  To finish them off I added little tags with their initials and some of the fabulous new Real Red Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon.  

Have a great Monday.

Supplies:  Empire Upper Alphabet Stamp Set, Whisper White & Night of Navy Card Stock, Brights Patterns DSP, White Tissue Paper, Real Red Classic Ink, Extra- Large Tag, 1 in. Circle & Small Star Punches, Real Red Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Medium Cello Bags, Rubber Bands, Sticky Strip, Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots

These are just super cute! Maybe Gavin won't be quite so bummed if he has something to make a little noise!
