I heart America

I heart America

It's almost July 4th!

Where has the year gone!?!?

People everywhere are celebrating America and gathering with family and friends to have picnics, enjoy fireworks and love of country. ♥

☆ I'm sharing a fun and festive project with you today. ☆

It's red, white and has stars...and has the spirit of giving in mind.

 This project is a boxed card set with a twist, it is patriotic and full of details.

 Pictured above is a box with a lid using papers from the Ruby Rock-It Fusion line. These papers are perfect for paper boxes, they are thick and have fabulous texture. I glued twine all around the lid and added a bit of detail to the top. ☺ Ok, I added a lot of detail. You'll see a dimensional star using more of those Fusion papers. A happy, flowery circle in red is peeking out from the star. A project wouldn't  be a project without sparkle, well at least to me, so you'll find plenty of it in this post. You can create all kinds of sparkle using Ruby Rock-It Bling. The best part of using RRI bling is you can take it apart or use it as a whole. 

I wanted to fill the box with something, so I created sweet hello cards using more Fusion, Krafty Goodness and shaped tags, using various sizes and shapes.

 I created five cards that measured 3 1/2" X 4". They sentiments are all a general hello, so whoever is the recipient of this gift can use the cards whenever needed or in a pinch. ♥ I also created envelopes with labels, perfect for mailing or writing a sweet note on front.
