Flag Favors

A spirited holiday celebration calls for a fun take-home treat, like this goody bag of candies arranged to resemble the American flag.

Materials

  • Cellophane bags, 2 inches by 10 inches
  • Blue sixlets
  • Cocoa stirrers, in Vanilla and Cinnamon
  • Waxed linen thread, in Country Red

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Start by partially filling a 2-by-10-inch cellophane bag with blue candies to stand in for stars.

  2. Step 2

    Then add red and white candy sticks to mimic stripes.

  3. Step 3

    Tie the bag with red waxed twine, and don't be surprised if you catch yourself humming "Stars and Stripes Forever."
