An easy and festive gift idea for the 4th of July – a foiled label is added to boxes of holiday sparklers!
This summer is flying by so quickly – I can’t believe it’s already the 4th next weekend! For this month’s project using the Minc, I created a printable label to add to boxes of Sparklers. We love using sparklers on the 4th and these labels would make great party favors at your July barbecues! Just check out these gorgeous colors of heat-reactive foil!
To create your own designs to use with the Minc, you will need either a laser printer or a copy made on a laser copier (from your local copy store). I created this label and then printed it at home. Holly and I just got this printer – HP LaserjetPro P1102w – and it has been working fabulously! In the past my copies from Staples have been hit and miss as far as quality with the foil, but this printer has given great results every single time. (affiliate link)

Once you have printed or copied your labels, you can foil them all at one time or cut them and foil them individually. I cut three small pieces in different colors to add red, gold, and blue foil to the label. (By the way, I’m still not sick of “Firework” by Katy Perry, which inspired this printable!)
When using separate colors, it’s okay if they overlap the edge of the paper, but I have noticed that if two foils overlap it can leave a faint line on the edge of one color. The most important tip is to make sure no black ink (toner) is uncovered because it will transfer to your plastic folder.
Once the labels are all foiled, just trim and adhere to the sparkler boxes! I used a kid’s glue stick! (The joys of moving and still not knowing where anything is!)
Wouldn’t these be fun to have out on the table at your 4th of July barbecues this year? We hope you have a fun and safe 4th!
