S’mores and Popcorn Camping Gift
The perfect DIY gift for your camper!
Hi! Camping season is in full swing. Some friends of mine just purchased a new teardrop camper, and it is so cute. I wanted to give them a little “camper warming” present, so I came up with a S’mores and Popcorn Camping Gift!
S’mores And Popcorn Camping Gift
This is really easy to put together. You just need to have some scrapping supplies and the food supplies. Easy enough!
Here is what you need:
- Popcorn (stove-top popping pan type)
- Graham Crackers
- Chocolate Bars
- Assorted camping theme Scrapbook Paper
- Stickers and Die Cuts
- Pen or Pencil for tracing
- Mounting Tape
- Black Powder Puff Ink
- Paper Cutter/Trimmer
- Cellophane Bags – 4 inches wide with a gusset
- Hole Punch
- Tin Container
Let’s put it together:
Step 1 – lay the popcorn upside down on one of the patterned scrapbook papers. Trace around the edge and cut out the circle. You will need to cut inside your line by about ¼ inch to get it to fit. We will trim to be more precise a little later.
Step 2 – Decorate the front of the round pieces using the stickers and die cuts. I also used the black ink pad to ink the edges of all of the pieces (including the sticker and die cut pieces). This is my personal preference. I don’t like to see the white edges of the papers.
Step 3 – Once you have your rounds the way you like them you will attach them to the popcorn. To do this, lift the crimped edges of the popcorn container, and tuck the round piece in place. If it does not fit very well, just give the decorative round a little trim–trim and try…trim and try.
Step 4 – Next you will need two cello bags, the graham crackers, the chocolate bars, and the marshmallows. Each bag will contain: Break two graham crackers in half and place them into a cello bag. Then, place two chocolate bars in followed by two marshmallows. (Each cello bag will hold the fixings for two s’mores).
Step 5 — Using another piece of the scrapbook paper, cut two pieces to 4.25” x 6”. Fold them in half. They are slightly wider than the cello bag and when attached to the bag in a few minutes will create a topper.
Step 6 – Decorate the bag topper using the die cuts and stickers.
Step 7 – Try to make the bag as neat as possible and fold the top of the bag down a couple of times. Place the topper over the top of the bag. Staple it along the lower edges to keep everything in place.
Step 8 – Using the twine, wrap a piece a couple of times around the topper and tie a knot. Then punch a hole in one of the die cuts and tie it onto the twine. Trim the ends of the twine if needed. (you can see these in the final photos)
Step 9 – Scrunch up some of the newspaper and place it in the bottom of the tin container. Then use some more of the newspaper like you would tissue paper. Place it on top of the scrunched pieces and let it fan out. (The newspaper will make great fire kindling).
Place the popcorn into the tin container; then, add the s’mores bags. You can arrange them however you want.
That is all there is to it. Now enjoy or give as a great gift!
