If you are looking for a fun little party favor or table decoration for your 4th of July party, you might have fun making this 4th of July Uncle Sam Scalloped Tag Topper Treat Holder. It’s just a single strip of paper, scored to hold a piece of candy inside, with the top tied together and decorated on the front! You can use this basic idea for any size or any occasion! But this one will be very cute for a 4th of July Independence Day celebration!
This treat holder is made with a 2″ x 8″ strip of Pacific Point card stock. I found the center (4″) and then measured equal distance from that to allow room for my single Ghirardelli candy, so I didn’t need it to be very wide. I probably scored it about 1/2″ off the center on each side. Then I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch at the top of each end. Next I measured a piece of Whisper White card stock to fit in the space on the front of the treat holder. It looked too plain so I embossed it with the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder.
The Uncle Sam is made with several punches and you could make yours larger. The hat is made with a 1 3/8″ square of Whisper White, and I just cut some narrow strips of Real Red and glued them on the hat. The hat brim is made with the Word Window Punch. The beard is made with the 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch and the face is Sahara Sand punched with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch. The Gold Glimmer Paper star is punched with the star in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. I tied the package with my favorite ribbon, the Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon and a piece of Gold Sequin Trim for a little bling!
You have time! Make a few little 4th of July decorations or treats for your guests or neighbors or kids for your celebration or fireworks viewing!
Don’t forget the Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals (a couple sold out on the special price already) and the new items (and old) on the Clearance Rack. Also, remember the Watercolor Wishes Card Kit is now available, in the catalog on page 80). Be sure to put THAT on your list!
I hope my 4th of July Uncle Sam Scalloped Tag Topper Treat Holder will inspire you to copy this idea or come up with your own to celebrate the Independence Day holiday!
