4th of July Centerpiece!!

Happy Independence Day!!!!
Here is a festive centerpiece that my Daughter Samantha and I made together! We used the Independence Day (limited edition) Cricut cartridge that can found in the thoughts2paper store . I love the images on this cartridge and although there are no creative features, there is some layering on the cuts. I used a metal tub from Michaels and white lollipop sticks...I glued the images to the sticks with Helmar 450 quick dry adhesive...also found in the thoughts2paper store ( I love this stuff and if you haven't tried it you should!!!). I added some curling ribbon to the sticks and some of my sons flags...I am so happy with the way that it turned out...just so festive and fun and full of red, white and blue!!!

We always go to my Husband's Aunt's house after the 4th of July Parade, so we thought we would bring this centerpiece and card (and some festive cupcakes) this year!

Here is the card that we made using the 4th of July and hat cut. We used the stars cuttlebug folder and popdots for the hat!

I hope you all have a fabulous 4th of July weekend full of FUN!!!
