It's almost July 4th!
Where has the year gone!?!?
People everywhere are celebrating America and gathering with family and friends to have picnics, enjoy fireworks and love of country. ♥
☆ I'm sharing a fun and festive project with you today. ☆
It's red, white and blue...it has stars...and has the spirit of giving in mind.
This project is a boxed card set with a twist, it is patriotic and full of details.
Pictured above is a box with a lid using papers from the Ruby Rock-It Fusion line. These papers are perfect for paper boxes, they are thick and have fabulous texture. I glued twine all around the lid and added a bit of detail to the top. ☺ Ok, I added a lot of detail. You'll see a dimensional star using more of those Fusion papers. A happy, flowery circle in red is peeking out from the star. A project wouldn't be a project without sparkle, well at least to me, so you'll find plenty of it in this post. You can create all kinds of sparkle using Ruby Rock-It Bling. The best part of using RRI bling is you can take it apart or use it as a whole.
I created five cards that measured 3 1/2" X 4". They sentiments are all a general hello, so whoever is the recipient of this gift can use the cards whenever needed or in a pinch. ♥ I also created envelopes with labels, perfect for mailing or writing a sweet note on front.
Here's a close up of one of those cards:
And a close up of those envelopes:
Here's a shot of the project as a set, which includes: the box, the lid, the gift tag, the cards and the envelopes.
THANK YOU for letting me share this with you! I enjoyed creating it very much. I hope it inspires you to create something red, white & blue! Happy 4th if you're celebrating, and if you're in a different part of the world and it's just another day...have a great one!
