some fun for the fourth...

while i'm working on a "homemade lollipop" tutorial for you,
i thought i'd keep you busy by sharing a FREE 4th of July printable with you...


these "sparkler tags" are SUCH a super-easy way to personalize your 4th of July sparklers!
(i cannot take credit for the idea...it originated from this 4th of July digital package I purchased last year from my one of my FAVE digital designers: rhonna farrer).
i created my own in order to give you something EASY to make and get you in a festive mood...
your guests will appreciate the clever packaging when it's time to hand them out.

here they are assembled

and what could get better than an adorable sparkler tag?
well...
brace yourself...this is SO smart...

you can also use a circle punch to create these...

the circles can be added to any party element to add further cuteness to your holiday celebration!


for instance...i finally tried my hand at making these "jarfaits" posted by nesting newbies...

the labels fit perfectly on top for some added pizzazz!!
i used vanilla pudding, blueberries & strawberries
(i think using whipped cream, or vanilla ice cream would be WAY cuter - but the pudding is what i had on hand).

so there you have it.
you could really do so much with this FREE printable.
and couldn't you totally see the sparkler tag used at an evening wedding reception?!
(who knows...perhaps it's already been done?!)

i hope you all have a fantastic monday!
i'm looking forward to a productive week!

Keeping It Real
The circle punches were a complete afterthought...so I'm not as clever as you might think! *wink*
It just so happened, after finishing the design and printing them out, I realized they worked perfectly with a circle punch too...love it when things like that happen!
AND...the "jarfaits" were a last minute idea to add to this post. I whipped these out in less than TEN minutes people!! Seriously super easy. I can't wait to try different versions using angel food cake, pound cake, cookies...etc. Oh the possibilities!!

Wow! These are great and you are so generous. I'm on vacation or I'd be printing them out as fast as I can! Thanks!
