My family goes all out to celebrate the Fourth of July (we're even in a boat parade every year).
We compiled an album of the best July 4th decorations we found online and put them on our website.
We can't wait to make these free printable sparkler holders and match box wraps from Twig and Thistle. Here's how to make them:
What You’ll Need:
8.5 x 11″ 80lb white card stock (like this from Paper-Source)
8.5 x 11″ 80lb white text paper (like this from Paper-Source)
Double Sided Tape
Standard Hole Punch
Matchbooks (found at a grocery store)
1. Download the Matchbook and Straw Tags Template and print onto white text paper. Download the Sparkler Card Template and print onto white card stock. Print using the highest quality settings on your color printer to ensure that the patterns and text are clear.
2. Trim out all the shapes using scissors or a sharp blade and making sure to trim off all the black edges. Use a standard hole punch and punch where indicated to allow the straws to be thread through. Carefully trim out the small rectangles in the Sparkler Holders to weave the sparklers through.
3. Secure the wrap around the matchbooks with double sided tape, making sure not to cover up the striker strip. Crease the edges with your fingers or using a bone folder so that they are crisp. Thread the straw through the holes and position towards the top of the straw. Thread the sparklers through the slots.
We hope everyone has a safe holiday!
