INSIDE: How to make a USA patriotic banner from paper goodie bags, cocktail napkins and scrapbook paper.
How do you celebrate the Red, White and Blue? In our pre-kids life, we would lounge around the pool and enjoy any excuse for a patriotic beverage.
But now with three cute “party crashers”, these summer holidays are spent doing something. It’s either heading to a small town 4th of July parade as we drag along snacks and sunscreen, or chasing three kids going in three directions at a local carnival.
Patriotic chaos aside, these summer holidays are always a good excuse to pull anything red, white and blue out of the closet, or to haul out the Stars and Strips decorations.

DIY U.S.A. Patriotic Banner from Paper Goodie Bags
DIY U.s.a. patriotic banner
Open the cocktail napkin. Use craft scissors to cut the napkin in half.
Gather each individual napkin square and form a bow shape with your fingers. Secure the bow with some craft twine.
Use a hole punch to create two holes at the top of each paper goodie bag. String the twine through these holes until you form a chain of paper bags.
Add a dab of craft glue to the back of the paper napkin bows. Glue them onto the top of each paper bag.
