Today already "feels" like the 4th of July since a lot of people are off work. I'm going to put my flag out soon since that will make it feel even more like the July 4th holiday. Here is an easy little box I just made with my beloved Big Shot, Box #2 die. I have used this so much and I think you would too!
I used Whisper White card stock for the box and stamped red and blue stars from Nursery Necessities (a baby stamp set!) all over it. The little "Celebrate" tag is from "Matchbox Messages". I punched the word "Celebrate" with the Word Window Punch and the Real Red card stock behind it is punched with the brand new Modern Label Punch (page 187) #116630 $15.95 I inserted a couple of little brads on the sides and tied the box with the Real Red 1/2" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon. Honestly, I planned to stick punched out stars all over the box and even embossed a gold one from "Fun & Fast Notes". But it wasn't looking right and once I played with the ribbon, especially tying it around the top of the box, I felt like I had my design! Sometimes you have to know when to stop!
Happy 4th of July!
