Ready for the 4th!

Hi everyone!  I know it's not quite 4th of July but it is getting close so I wanted to show you all some decorations I made for our 4th of July barbecue!  All of the adorable stamps are from Raisin Boat Stamps.  This 'Red, White & Blue' set has such an array of cute stamps, I couldn't help but use them all:)  This year I thought it would be fun to dress up my silverware caddy and make it patriotic.  I love decorating for this holiday because it's summer, it's hot (usually) and red is my favorite color!

First off  I cut hangers for the condiment bottles, stamped them up using the 'Red, White & Blue' stamp set and used a Viva pearl pen for a little pizazz.  The rosettes are attached to skewers and I plan on sticking these in the yummy slices of watermelon we will have.  I even stamped tags and then cut them out for the silverware.  I apologize for the ugly background in this picture but I wanted to get everything in.

The banner was cut from Raisin Boat cardstock and decorated with the same stamp set and the 'Polka Dots' background. I cut out the cirlcle, #4  and firecracker stamps.  It turned out perfectly!  Very patriotic and so darn cute.

I also made some darling treat boxes that will be filled with candy and small prizes.  These boxes are from soooo long ago...literally 20 years. But they sure are cute!  All of the images on the boxes were embossed.  It got a little messy but I love the way they turned out.  I can't wait for everyone else to see them.

This is a close up of one of the treat boxes- adorable!  Again I apologize for the imperfect background! And here is the cute, cute stamp set from Raisin Boat!

Thanks for checking out my blog!
