The 4th of July will be here quicker than you can say “Firecrackers!” Why not offer up some treats to take home wrapped up as these dynamite party favors? Candy that would be perfect tucked inside: red hots, atomic fireballs, and/or pop rocks. (PS – USA straw flags!)

Step 1: Cut 2 circles slightly larger than the ends of the paper tube.
Step 2: Cut a rectangle of red crepe just large enough to cover the exterior of the tube. Set aside.
Step 3: Glue a ring around the outside of a circle.
Step 4: Press and hold onto one end.
Step 5: Fill with goodies.
Step 6: Glue a ring around the outside of a circle.
Step 7: Press and hold the second circle on the other end.
Step 8: Wrap the tube with the rectangle of crepe paper. Glue the long end closed.
Step 9: Poke a hole in the top of the tube.
Step 10: Insert 3-4 inches of black cord. You may need to use the skewer to poke the cord in.
Step 11: Cut 3-4 inches of star garland.
Step 12: Twist and attach the star garland to the black cord.
Repeat for each guest.
PS: This favor could easily be adapted for a Dino-mite Dinosaur party – – just fill with gummy dinosaurs or plastic toy dinos.
