Welcome!!!! To the 2010 ARTISAN'S BLOG HOP.

I'm so happy you came to check out my Creations! Thaks for stopping by!
be sure to check below for details for some BLOG CANDY!!

You may have arrived here from the previous blog on our hop Tessa Wise's Blog or just be visiting my blog, whichever way once you’ve checked out my creations, you can continue the hop back to the beginning to Heather Van Duker's Blog

I made the following goodies...
-Fourth of July Fire Cracker Tube
-Napkin ring
-Menu Card

Fourth Of July Fire Cracker Tube:

( I made this to use to fill with sparklers as a party favor for
your guest-and then can be saved and used for a decoration gift for them too! )

This tube is made from the inside tube in your wrapping paper! I just chopped it off
and made a belly band to go around!
The tube itself is covored in Red Tissue Paper and has
a red pipe cleaner on top to mimic a fuse.
I used my Circles #2 Die at the bottom Product # 114526 $15.95
( I have used this die over and over again. Don't let me count the ways!!)
The very bottom around the edge of the Largest circle of the die
I wrapped some Very Vanilla coordinating paper punched it out
with the Pinking Hearts Border Punch Product # 117649 $ 15.95

Stamp Sets: July Fourth ( Occasions Mini April-june 2010)
Product # 118523 ( Wood ) $18.95. Product#120063 ( Clear ) $14.95.
Wheel: Red, White & Blue. Produt# 118622 $ 8.50

Ink: Real Red, Very Vanilla & Night of Navy.

Paper: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Real Red, Naturals Ivory & Night of Navy.

-Napkin ring
-Menu Card

I wanted to make something I could use this Fourth...and it is always about presentation
for me when it comes to surving food! And how fun to have a theme!! I thought it might
be cute to make a simple holder to wrap around your napkins. These were super
fun and easy to whip up. Something you could difenately make enough for all your guest at
each place setting.

Stars #2 die Product # 113461 $15.95

Stamp Sets listed above.

The stars are layered under chip board and have the
thick string stuck in between the bottom 2 sections of each star!

Along with the cute little munu card!
For that I used...

Stamp set: Compliments to the Chef. Product # 114397 $ 20.95 ( Wood ).
and my

Two Tags Die. Product #115954 $ 21.95.
