July 4th Party Poppers


July 4th Party Poppers

Make your own party poppers filled with of candy or other prizes for a 4th of July party. Follow the instructions by Little Birdie Secrets to create patriotic party poppers filled with your favorite things.

July 4th Party Poppers


  • Toilet paper/paper towel roll
  • Cracker Snaps--I bought mine at my local Packaging Specialties store. (They have locations in Seattle and Redmond WA, and Portland, OR.) You can find them online at some packaging/party supply sites, like Olde English Crackers. They're about $4.25 for 25 crackers.
  • Tissue paper
  • Ribbon
  • Cardstock
  • Tape or glue
  • Goodies to go inside the tube (candy, money, small toys, etc.)


  1. Fill your tube with all the goodies. You can choose to put a small piece of tape over the openings to prevent them from falling out. I didn’t, but then I had to be really careful when finishing the party poppers.

  2. Cut your tissue paper to your desired size.

  3. Wrap the roll in tissue paper. Place the cracker snap on the outside of the roll after you wrap it in tissue paper. After some experimenting I found that the cracker snaps better if it is between the tissue paper and your card stock.

  4. Cut your card stock to your desired length and attach to the outside of your roll. Glue or tape shut so it stays on.

  5. Tie the ends of your roll off with coordinating ribbon. I used pinking shears to finish off my tissue paper edges, but this is not necessary.

  6. Throw a fun party so you can use them! Get creative. This would be such a fun way to tell others you are getting married or you are expecting. I stuffed mine with dollar bills. My oldest daughter would like this much more than little toys or candy (meee tooo!).
