Happy 4th of July!!!
I so enjoy the 4th of July. It is one holiday that truly unifies all of us, and is not focused on commercialism. It is one of those holidays, where everyone just enjoys being together and participating in good old-fashioned fun: parades, BBQs, fireworks..
And, with recent world events, and the Boston Marathon tragedy on our soils, we will savor our FREEDOM all the more, and GIVE THANKS to those service men and women who work daily to protect that freedom. THANK YOU!!!
This vintagey, 4th of July treat pocket definitely shows off the patriotism! Assembling vintage elements into a collage is a great way to show off many little vintage tidbits, and to use scraps. This project uses vintage tickets, and patriotic seals found in our Patriotic store. Also, break out those decorative scissors again and create unique trims! The bottom of this pocket is trimmed with a bit of a zig-zagged scrap.
And punches! Emphasize the edges of a punched out image with stickles. Use ink to soften the edges of your projects. I used gold ink on the edges here…
This treat pocket is temporarily stuffed with vintage lace, but very soon will have yummy treats in it!
Have a safe and Happy 4th of July holiday with your families today!
