Hot Gift for 4th of July – Red, Hot & Boom

Hey- I still have a week before 4th of July. I am late on making some fun printables for it. Nothing like the night before.

I go visit some sweet sisters in my Church for visiting teaching and wanted a hot gift to give them ;) This is what I came up with on the fly. :)  Pretty excited by it.

Wanted to use one of my neglected hole punches I haven’t used in a while. Designed a printable to use. (and share of course).

I used the punch – Uchida Clever Lever Xtra Giga Craft Punch, Merchandise Tag, 3-1/8-Inch-by-2-1/8-Inch

I simply cut alone the line to get a strip and punched out the tag where it lined up best centered. I used a regular hole punch on the tip so I could tie it on.

Box of red hots, containers and tags.   I got the containers at Specialty Bottle website. I LOVE containers so very much. I have to have them. Very addicting habit. Just ask my family. I save too much glass, bottles and always looking for containers. :)

ANYWAYS… back to the post…..

I filled up the container with 3 oz of red hots.  (the candy is 6 oz so I could fill up 2)

SO CUTE!! So easy!!! Perfect for the 4th of July!!

I decided to use some raffia to tie my tags on. Pulled out a long piece.

Wrapped the raffia around the box to help hold it on all 4 sides and tied it at the top, and tied on my gift tag.

Instant gift for my friends. :) And they would be great little favors at a 4th of July party. You could put some red hot candy in little baggies and tie it off with this tag as well :)

    Super cute!!! I can’t download it though. When I click on the “download” link it takes me to the box website, but the page remains blank. Any suggestions? (I do have a box account) THANK YOU!!!
