Are you loving Summer as much as I am??? I kinda go into hibernation in the Winter months but once it warms up I’m outside enjoying cookouts and time by/in the pool. Well 4th of July is almost here and I would to share a quick and simple project I created as a table decoration for the 4th. But first, before I forget, I would like to share with you that over at the Robin’s Nest store they have the Diamond Shaped Dew Drops on sale this month for 20% off. There is so many things you can use these little dew drops on…embellish layouts, make flowers, etc. Also we have teamed up with Timeless Twine too. What a great combination huh?!?!?!
My supplies list of what I used is below:
Vanilla Glitter Fluer Cardstock
Red Glitter Sorbet Cardstock
Blue Glitter Crackle Cardstock
Diamond Shaped Dew Drops
Glitter Blue Alpha Letter Stickers
White Alpha Sticker Letter
Firecracker Aqua Blue and Cherry Red Timeless Twine
Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations On the Edge Iron Gate Diecut
Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Ovals Large
The Paper Studio Script Embossing Folder
Well first off you need an empty and clean can. I used a pull top can so I wouldn’t have any sharp edges on the inside because if there is a will or way I will cut myself…lol 🙂
Next I Gesso the bottom and top edge of the can. No need to do the center because you will cover that with cardstock. Once the Gesso is dry I used Folk Art Tapioca Acrylic Paint to go over what I just Gessoed. Let dry. Now cut Vanilla Glitter Fluer cardstock to fit can. Once you have done that use Mod Podge to adhere to can.
Next make a bow with the Firecracker Aqua Blue and Cherry Red Timeless Twine. Adhere a button to the top of the bow and then shape.
Adhere to the side of the can. Next cut a strip of Firecracker Aqua Blue and Cherry Red Timeless Twine and glue one end of under the bow and the other end tie a small bow and adhere to the other side of the can.
The banners slightly fold the end and cut a small “v” out of each and adhere to the top of the twine. Next add U.S.A. to each of the banners.
