Build Your Own Trailmix Bar

MY PREVIOUS BLOG WAS CALLED “MILKGLASS and HONEY”

In the church I belong to we have a camp for the teenage girls in our area. We had about 78 girls and 38 leaders and I wanted to do a unique and fun treat for them during our service project activity. I saw a similar idea on pinterest (or course) and created my own printables for a Build your own Trailmix bar. Everyone loved it. I included all the usual fixings and a few random things (gummy bears) to keep the teenagers happy. It was a big success.

For the bags I purchased small (I think they are 4x6) flat cellophane bags with a self-adhesive strip at my local party supply store (Zurchers). 100 bags for $3.95. I then printed the bag labels on regular paper, used a punch to punch them and applied them with a gluestick. You could also print on sticker paper but it would be more expensive. I recommend using flat cellophane bags (rather than gusseted ones that open up large) because it takes less to fill them.

Source Ideas:

Baskets: Look at your local thrift store. I got all these baskets for around 25-50cents a piece.

Basket liners: Purchased in the Target dollar spot by the BBQ stuff they recently had.

Table cloth roll: purchased at a local food supply store. You can find these at any party store etc.

Tiny Bottlebrush trees: Lemax village trees...I got mine here 

Washi Tape: I used red gingham washi tape under the words "Build" and "Trailmix"


Also - the idea for these a large chalkboard printable printed as engineering prints originally came from Caravan Shoppe...an amazing design and prints website. Check them out for great printables of all kinds.
