Sparkler – DIY

August 26, 2010 by post tags

While it may be cold today at our little studio I have made a cheery and bright new DIY!  The sparkler send-off has become a popular modern tradition and today I have provided custom sparkler packaging in a variety of hues.

Sparklers can be purchased in boxes at any local party store. Simply slide a few through the printable packaging and they’re ready to be set out for guests. Make sure you have some matches or lighters nearby in case guests don’t have their own. In fact why not get some coordinating wrapping paper and cover Lion matchboxes so that they suit your colour scheme? Just be sure to cover only 3 sides and leave one of the striking sides clear.

When putting together this super simple DIY, I recommend making very small slits above and below the text area. The smaller the slit the tighter the sparklers will be kept in place. For added structure tape the sparklers to the card at the back.

Happy Crafting!

    Bianca, The upper message (Light me) is Eccentric STD but the lower message (When the …) seems to be in a different font. Do you mind giving me this font too? Many thanks. I promise I will not bother you again :)

      Hi :) Unfortunately this is a custom design by the designer who at the stage contributed the creative idea, Lucky no 9.
      Should you want to contact Bianca, you are more than welcome to :)
      Hope you come right! My best regards, Migneon
