Fourth of July Pretzel Buckets!

Hi everyone! I am SO excited to share with you this little project! :D Starting tomorrow, I will now work for three guidance counselors (and I will be the only secretary). I like to give little treats for holidays, so when I saw these buckets in the dollar bins at Target, I knew they would make the perfect container for this occasion. I didn't know how I was going to fill them, but I knew I would figure it out ;)

A couple of weeks later I saw these plain milk or dark chocolate covered pretzels at a local farmers market-y kind of grocery store near my house. I thought they would fit perfectly, but I didn't want to buy them then or else they would have been stale by the time I was giving my treats. So tonight, I went back to buy the pretzel bags and the most amazing things happened:

1. They had said pretzels, only now they were WHITE chocolate covered with red and blue swirls! YESSSSS :D
2. All red, white, and blue confections were 20% off! Double YESSSSS! Don't you love when you were already planning on buying something only to find out it's on SALE?! Woohoo!

I made some fun, slightly different tags to go with the buckets, using up some more of my Independence Day supplies. I am
thrilled to say that the majority of supplies for this holiday are gone, so that means I can keep my eyes peeled for clearance items to use on next year's cards! Hooray! :D

Anyway, I hope you like my fun pretzel buckets- I can't wait to see how my co-workers react! Yay! :D

areas to make up for the penchant and texture it lacks.
