Cellophane bags, 2 inches by 10 inches
Cocoa stirrers, in Vanilla and Cinnamon
Waxed linen thread, in Country Red
Start by partially filling a 2-by-10-inch cellophane bag with blue candies to stand in for stars.
Then add red and white candy sticks to mimic stripes.
Tie the bag with red waxed twine, and don't be surprised if you catch yourself humming "Stars and Stripes Forever."
