Happy 4th of July!

I hope you all have plans for a safe, happy and healthy holiday, and you get to celebrate our freedom with loved ones. Those of you serving our country, a huge heartfelt thank you for your continued service protecting our Country!

Today is also my grandfather’s birthday 😀 Happy Birthday Grandpa

It is our monthly Year in Review Group Post. Time to share something new with something old. To celebrate the holiday I asked the team to share some projects that are Red, White & Blue.

I actually have a totally different project I planned on sharing, as it is Christmas themed, but since it is 4th of July I felt this project was much more suitable! This is actually a project I made this time LAST YEAR, but forgot to share it! LOL!

Stars & Stripes Flag

I made this star shaped, flag themed gift box using the Star of the Show © template for my grandfather.

Since his birthday is the 4th of July a patriotic themed gift is inevitable 😀

The top was made using a navy cardstock, and a star layer in white, then again in navy. I cut the three dimensional stars, resized from the Lost My Tooth © cut file. 11 Stars in all.

 The sentiment was printed using the Rainbow of Wishes ©set.

The tag just ties on, and the pointed end tucks into the end layer.
As you can see the base was made from white cardstock.
I was able to cut 1 inch stripes, and they fit perfectly all the way around!
The tip for getting that PERFECT is starting at an edge! I believe you use 20 in total, but if you just cut a couple long strips you can trim off the excess. OR you can always use some stripped paper 😀  We have many to choose from that may work 😀 Check them out here!
I had placed some scratch tickets (and some other cut star “confetti”) in this box (grandpa loves those) with some Almond Hershey Kisses (his fave) hence the “Make a Wish” tag! He did end up winning about $20. Not too shabby.
That does it for me today!
Thanks for letting me share what I love, and I truly hope it inspired you. I love getting your feedback and emails about all the proojects, your thoughts, and things you hope to see from My Time Made Easy ™ LLC in the future.
I thank each of you for your continued support 😀
 Happy 4th!!
