Fourth of July Decorations

I made some cute July 4th party decorations. 


You may remember seeing the card files I gave out last year with the star cutouts. Well, I simplified the star cutouts and made these cute rockets.


The rocket sitting down is a treat box that is 4 inches by 2 inches without the lid.




It is about 6inches by 3 inches with the lid. 



I added some cute little curls to give it a little something extra. I put Stickles on them but it does not show up in the picture.

Then I came up with the idea that the rocket could be put on a stick to be added to a party centerpiece  or place in the ground to line the sidewalk.



It is a hollow tube and the cone is glued on top. It would also look great suspended from the ceiling and with streamers hanging from it.

Then looking at the star cutouts made me think of napkin rings.


Then when I was making the napkin rings, I thought they would make adorable bracelets!
(Man, if you give a crafter an idea, she will think of 5 more...LOL)

The backdrop is 2 pieces of scrapbook paper that I bought YEARS ago and have had stashed away just for an occasion like this. (Asky page and a grass page.)  I love how it added some pep to the pictures. :)

The files for these Patriotic Party Decorations are available on my Etsy shop.

I have a lot more ideas for the Fourth' but I don't know if I will get to them all. We will have to see.
