Independence Day Blog Hop!!

Hello Bloggers! I'm excited to be joining a new group of crafty blog friends in a fun adventure. We will host blog hops throughout the year featuring seasonal/holiday projects. We use products we like just for fun and inspiration!! So, Welcome to the Independence Day Blog Hop!!!

 
You should have arrived from the blog of Ceal Pritchett.
 
I decided to create an ATC for my Independence Day project! I started with a small ATC sized piece of white corrugated cardstock and painted the edges with gesso. I then layered a doily over the cardboard. I distressed and painted the edges of some pieces of paper from Graphic 45's A Place in Time - July Cut Aparts. I layered these pieces together ...
 
 
I added some sequins, some glitter ribbon from American Crafts, and a stick pin from my stash. I hand cut a banner and folded it over the stick pin. I then rolled three small pieces of paper to create firecrackers. The wick is made by sticking some Gold Shimmer twine from The Twinery into the rolled papers.
 
 
Be sure to check out all the blogs on this hop for lots of crafty Independence Day inspiration. I want to thank Donna Bowman  for the invite to participate and stop by her blog to see her FUN project with a great tutorial! ! Looking forward to the next Holiday already!!
