2008 Parade Grand Champions —YIPPEE!

Uncle Sam Hat Party Favors

July 3, 2008

Just a little clue to the theme of our float! I am making these little favors for my breakfast table this year to go with the patriotic pinwheels.

I took about a 3″ circle of tissue paper and glued it to the top of a toilet paper roll. Next I printed the Uncle Sam Hat Party Favor download on card-stock. I used a glue stick to attach it to the toilet paper roll. I then filled the tube with goodies and attached a 3″ red card-stock circle with a glue gun. I printed the circles on a piece of red card-stock to make it easier for me. You can find what I used for the brim of the hat here. (Make sure you print full size–no scaling, so the downloads fit the toilet paper roll properly.)

Setting our breakfast tables



Firecracker Party Favors

July 3, 2007

Before our Fourth of July parade we have a breakfast. I have been working on these paper firecracker party favors


from the July Country Living Magazine.


Mine will be filled with fireworks. They are (so far —notice I haven’t gotten that far) really simple to make.


You can download images from their site, here. I used vintage clip-art from this book.
