Happy 4th of July ~ 2013!!!

Happy 4th of July!  I hope you are having a fun and relaxing day celebrating our independence with friends and family.  Today and tomorrow I will be sharing with you some 4th of July paper projects. 

I created this card using the Imagine cartridge Buccaneer.  I remembered it having lots of fun red and blue striped patterns that are perfect for USA and sailing themed projects.  The sentiment is stamped from My Pink Stamper's Yankee Doodles stamp set.

I thought it would be cute to have a pirate looking at fireworks through his telescope!

This was a super fast and easy tag to make.  Again, I used Buccaneer for the patterns and colored in a  dog tag from the Cricut cartridge Stand and Salute.

I hand created the fire crackers by cutting  vintage paper straw into 4 pieces.  I then got glued some twine to a  scrap red border and rolled it just big enough to slip into the straw piece.  I did the same to the alternate end and voila...paper fire crackers!
