Trendy Twine: A 4th Of July Treat!

Good day to all my bloggie friends, today it's my turn to post over
at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine. 
I will be featuring this month's spotlight, the Stars & Stripes Trendy Twinand the 
Large Kraft Pillow Box
Since the 4th of July is right around the corner I decided to made a fun treat. I wrapped navy cardstock around the Large Kraft Pillow Box. With my Cricut Explore and the Graphically Speaking cartridge I was able to make the red borders with stars, which I adhered on both sides of the navy cardstock. I then placed a strip of the Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine on each side of my borders as well as small bows on the bottom portion of the Large Kraft Pillow Box. I used the CAC2 
cartridge for my banner and made pom poms (which I placed on each side) with the Stars & Stripes Trendy TwineFor the 4th of July doggie and his super cute outfit I used the CAC2. I stamped the sentiment "Celebrate" from Teeny Tag Greetings by My Creative Time on the banner, which I made with the "When I was a Kid" cartridge. Since I am invited to a 4th of July BBQ, 
I will be making a few of these fun treats and filling them with red & blue gumballs. 
Super fun & Yummy!!!
