DIY: Security Envelope Sparklers

We love these versatile designer sticks from The Ravenna Girls blog!  Make them for cupcake toppers, drink stirrers, appetizers picks, or anything else you can think of!

All you need is one or two security envelopes, scissors, bamboo skewers (cut down in length) and double sided tape. Glue stick would also work, as would toothpicks if you don’t have skewers around.

Cut down your envelope so you have one large rectangle of pattern to work with, then just cut on the diagonal into long thin triangles. You can also cut along the long length for a little variety.

Put some double sided tape or glue on the back side of the paper (the white side). I put about 1/2″ of sticky to get an attachment that held. Then, wrap the full triangle tightly around your skewer or toothpick.

Hold in place for 10-15 seconds, then gently unroll the paper and pull it away from the skewer. Voila! A little blue paper “sparkler” for your holiday decor.

Play around with the length and size of your triangles for a little varied effect. Then go to town!
