Firecracker Popcorn Bags

Serve up an explosive bag of popcorn this 4th of July or any day…

Family Chic 4th of July craft

It takes less than a minute to create this fun popcorn bag that both kids and adults will love!

For this you will need: one red, one white and one blue paper lunch bag (available in the food storage aisle at Target or online).

Nest bags together.

Fringe the edge with scissors. I used fringe scissors to speed things up – available at craft and specialty paper stores.

Fold over fringed edge and fluff out to create volume; fill with popcorn and serve.

An easy and inexpensive way to add some flair to your party.

    I’ve never heard of fringe scissors, but I love these bags! I hope I can make them for the forth.

      Hi Raejean! You could create the fringed edge with regular scissors too – but the fringe scissors are faster – they make 5 cuts at one time – I love them! Thanks for stopping by and commenting! Take Care, C

    Today I went shopping for those fringe scissors. I checked at Michael’s & JoAnn Fabrics. None! Where can I find them?
