Happy 4th!

Happy Independence Day! I have a fun little project you can do to celebrate and decorate. The kids can do this one too. I've seen this a few places, but my inspiration came from Julia Betton Court. You simply cut 3 different colors of cardstock (or designer paper) about 4 1/2 X 2 and cut lines down, eaving about a half inch at the bottom. Place sticky strip around your pencil and the bottom of your strips and wrap around, each one a little lower. I tied a piece of 1/2" Striped grosgrain ribbon to finish it. Pull or curl the pieces as desired. Fun!

And here's another idea for the New Catalog Blog Tour:

I used Razzle Dazzle, that yummy polka dot ribbon in Rich Razzleberry, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP, and Melon Mambo & Razzleberry CS.
Flower image is stamped in Melon Mambo on white, but I kind of streaked some Crushed Curry across it to match the designer paper. The smaller flower is in also in Crushed Curry, punched out and backed with a mambo flower from the 3 flower punch and a pink rhinestone brad is in the center - all popped up with dimensionals.
Have a great weekend - and don't forget to fill out the forms in the last post for a chance to win prizes!! and to check out Brenda's blog HERE
