Are the rest of you still with me? Great. Here are my 4th July party bags for grown ups!
I wanted to make some grown-up 4th July party bags for my future sister-in law’s hen weekend. I found lots of lovely free printables and wanted to share them with you too.
I especially love the way the badges turned out, using Fontaholic’s Sweet Liberty cupcake toppers, which are the perfect size to use in my BadgeIt! machine. I also made mini flags to decorate the front of the 4th July party bags using Fontaholic’s free printables, double-sided tape and cocktail sticks.
How to make 4th July party bags:
There are 3 elements to my 4th July party bags for grown ups:
1. A hangover survival kit
- Alka Seltzer
- Wayfarers (knock-off)
- Novelty Band Aids
2. A pamper kit
- flavoured lip balm
- beauty product samples (begged from beauty counters, saved from magazines & collected during hotel visits)
3. Other treats
- Sweets/candy (wrapped in red white and blue paper bags, sealed with Yesterday on Tuesday’s 4th July party printable silhouettes)
- Moustache tattoos (temporary – so that we can be US Presidents!)
- Party poppers
- Mini Oreo cookies
I found this fantastic free printable 4th July paper sack download at Skip to My Lou. Unfortunately my printer wasn’t co-operating and wouldn’t print straight onto my paper bags. I just printed them onto paper instead and stuck them on with washi tape – voila!
I then stabbed a cocktail stick flag through the front of each bag, using it to attach one of the badges, filled each bag with all the goodies and sealed it with double-sided tape.
I used the business card template in Canva to make the Hangover Survival Kit and Pamper Yourself labels for the bags.
