With Saturday marking the first official day of summer, I thought it was about time to whip up another lemon-inspired party favor. When the heat hits, what better way to cool down than a big cold glass of lemonade…candy! Send your guests home with a sweet treat that will be sure to quench their summer sweet tooth!
I’ve had these tropical chiclets in my prop stash for about a month now and I was just waiting for inspiration to hit on what to do with them. Although I decided that all chiclets lose their flavor after like 30 seconds, they sure do make for colorful treat bags! And half-a-minute of sugary goodness…
For this project, I created a lemonade “cup topper” template that can be easily be paired with Avery tent cards. If you ever thought tent cards were just for name cards, then think again! I talked about how easy it is to print on Avery products in this post, and this project is no exception.
After uploading the template (provided below) to the Avery site and popping the pre-cut paper in your printer, you can transform plain paper to a sheet of fun bag toppers in the matter of minutes. And the best part? They are already pre-cut so all you have left to do is trim the top/sides of the “glass’ and you’re good to go.
After trimming the sides, cut a small slit in the “rim” of the glass just big enough to slip in the straw. Insert the straw, fold each card over the top of the bag, and staple/tape shut.
To achieve the slanted edges at the bottom of the glass, simply fold over the bottom corners of the bag and tape to the back. Depending on the size of the bag, you may need to also fold in the top of the bag to match with the sides of the printable.
