Hello & Happy 4th of July, friends!
Hope everyone had a fabulous day!
I have spent alot of time this past week down in my stamp room creating. I love when nothing is distracting me and I can let the idea's flow. With the 4th of July coming, I spent last Saturday making a centerpiece for the kitchen table along with some little treats. I'd rather alter any items I can get my hands on rather than make a card sometimes. So here is my little project....
My pinwheel centerpiece I used an 29 oz peach can, washed & dried. I wrapped paper the whole way around. The paper I believe is from Taylor Expressions a few years back. It was a gift from a friend. Anyways, I used the same paper to make my pinwheels. I have the large & small dies from Lil Inkers. Once I had my pinwheels made I put a silver brad in the center and hot glued them onto a wooden skewer. I put some foam in the bottom of my can and placed some spanish moss over top to hide the foam. I stuck my skewers in the foam to hold them into place. Then I took a piece of Twill Tape and made a loopy bow and hot glued that on to my can. I was quite impressed once it was done..my family loved it!
Then the Hershey treats I used the snack size Hershey Bars that I found at the Dollar Tree. I wrapped all 3 in Red, White or Blue DSP and used 2 sided tape to close the paper around each candy bar. I then glued the 3 together and added my sentiment and a mini clothes pin that I added an glitter star too with some hot glue. I attached them to the candy bars with a dimensional and called them done.
Hope you like!
Well, that is all for me today!
Soon time to head to bed as Shawn has to work tomorrow. I plan to head to my stamp table to work on some cards for my card rack! :)
Thanks for stopping by & I hope everyone had a very nice 4th of July holiday!
