In our house, summertime means lots of things - sunshine, BBQ's, the lake, popsicles, and road trips! Yes, we spend plenty of time in the car every summer - whether it's traveling a short distance to a lake, the mountains, or the pool, or a little farther - like an all-day drive to Grandma's house. After one or two road trips, we're looking for ways to keep the kids happy and occupied (and NOT asking us 'how much longer' every 3 minutes). One of the best ways I've found to keep them happy is to keep the treats coming. In an effort to keep things new & exciting, I thought it would be fun to use my scrapbooking supplies to jazz up some of our treats for our next road trip. Pretzels are a staple for this traveling family, but if each child has his own individual bag of pretzels, well, it's much more fun!
Making Memories’ Panorama collection is perfect for adding a bit of fun to your road trip treats.
For this little pretzel bag, I pulled out my Panorama supplies and simply created a little bag wrap with the varnished street sign paper, then I embellished it with transportation paper, masking tape, ribbon, a tag, stickers, rub-ons, a flower, a couple of stacked buttons, and a cute little star brad. It sounds like a lot of product, but by using elements from the same line, it went together quickly and turned out really cute. I'm excited to present my kiddos with their own little decorated bag of goodies on our next road trip!
Now I get to challenge to you - take out your scrapbook supplies and jazz up a treat or two for your next road trip, BBQ, or picnic!
