Welcome to Stop #13…

and I’m elated to have you join me.  Welcome on your journey – from the lovely, crafty Antonia’s blog.

{Link no longer available.  It has been disabled because the blog hop is now done.  🙂  You can still purchase the mini kits in Jessica Sprague’s store.  Bags made with the designer’s 4ever bloghop kits:  label from Carina’s mini kit,  polaroid frame, banner and rick-rack heart from mini kit by Splendid Fiins, glitter splats from JS admin team and Heidi Swapp mini kit, star story stick made with 4ever mini kit by the Queen of Quirk.  Paper strips on prizes below from above kits, as well as In the Making mini kit and Live Design’s mini kit.}

The labels can be used in digital or hybrid scrapping.  A very 4th of July one and another for other occasions as well.

We love the 4th of July around here – here’s the blog post from last year if you would like to see what our small-town celebration looks like.  We love having popcorn on the 4th – sometimes buttery – sometimes carmely, sometimes in the afternoon – sometimes during fireworks.  I like it all.  I thought it would be a great deal of fun to dress the popcorn bags up this year and put in prizes a la Cracker Jack.  I hope you enjoy them too!

Here’s a close-up of the popcorn bags:

The labels can be printed directly onto paper bags – a little tricky, but I found great directions here, or they can be printed as labels and adhered to the paper bags.

And a photo of the prizes that can be found inside:

The prizes are packaged with the adorable papers included in the bloghop from the JS designers.  A cute idea I got from sugarbsupplies where I bought the glassine envelopes.  I used them partly because glassine is resistant to water and grease.  Also because in my research I found out glassine is used to package fireworks.  Perfect!  And Zotz are included in my prize packages – a fun, fizzy candy that screams fireworks and fun to me.  😉

Here’s the story stick “prize” {craft} included in the download:

These can be made ahead of time and slipped into the bags, or the supplies can be included and each person make their own (that’s my plan).  I used colored pencils for the base.  I glued the sharp point into the star part, but if you’re feeling brave (or have older celebrants) it would be neat to have the stick be writeable as well.  🙂

Here’s info about the story sticks (also included in the download):

Feel free to visit as long as you’d like, and when you’re ready –head on over to the beautiful, effervescent Brenda’s blog, stop #14.  🙂
