Happy Independence Day

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion 
Hello my crafty friends~
Happy Friday~ So, do you have a lot planned for the 4th? We are staying pretty close to home awaiting the birth of our newest Grand baby which is due next week. We are also planning on going to the local parade, festivities and fireworks. How about you?

Today I am sharing another fun 4th of July treat favors for my daughter to take to work for her co-workers. I just grabbed some pretzels rods, dipped them in Wilton's candy melts and sprinkle candies on top. After they set up, I put them in a pretzel rod bag and created a fun tag to attach
to them :)
They are super easy to make and everyone loves them! Yum!
I kept the tags rather simple as they are going to just throw it away anyway~ I started with making a tag using the Art Philosophy cartridge. I cut it at 3 1/2 and stamped the fireworks background with Pretty Cute Stamps~Fireworks stamp set in red and blue.
I then stamped the sentiment which is also from this stamp set in black for a little dimension. I finished with a little gem in the center of one of the fireworks and tied them on with Berry Trendy Twine and tied a bow~Viola..done!
Have a WONDERFUL and SAFE weekend!!!!
