4th of July Dynamite Party Favor DIY

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!)
