Patriotic Party Favors and Banners! 4th of July will be here soon!

 Yes this year is flying by!!!! Memorial Day has come and gone and before you know it the 4th of July will be upon us.  That being said, I have started making some patriotic party favors and banners.

Let's start with the banners.  Using the pennant die cut, scallop punch, circle punch and star punch (all punches except star are Stampin' Up)  The centerpiece of this banner is a rosette made with 2 - 12" X 1" strips of paper scored at every 1/2".  Adhered the 2 pieces together, held into a tight circle and put hot glue in the middle and held it until it set. Finished off the centerpiee with a vintage button and cherry cobbler bakers twine. 
 Using the petal cone die, I put together these patriotic cones.  These will hold either snack size Kit Kat bars or Twizzlers, whichever I find first :)
 Made these cute boxes out of 10" X 5 1/2" pieces of heavy cardstock.  Used punches and the pennant die cut to make the embellishments.  I found Tootsie Rolls and saltwater taffy in star spangled wrap at Winco to put inside the boxes.
If I whip up some potato salad and barbeque some burgers and I think we have a party!!!! :)

I hope you are having a great week!
Be inspired to create!
