4th Of July Party -Hello Thursday Cricut Cartridge release

 This patriotic party is just perfect for the 4th of July,or can be tweaked for Memorial day as well! Summer is almost here and I for one look forward to all the warm days and festivities that take place this time of year! I'm thrilled about this brand new Cricut cartridge called Tablescapes Spring and Summer talk about the ultimate party planning helper!!!! My head is spinning with ideas, there are SOOOOO many ways to use this amazing new cartridge!!! I have a real love affair with stars so I HAD to make a whole table filled with glittery stars and stripes.....and dots.....{swoon}


Napkin rings layered with sparkles galore and a book paper banner embellished with a 4th of July SRM sticker and then ran it through the crimper...looks cool huh? I love how they turned out!!


This star favor box has a cut out that I added in the center {for the gypsy and Cricut craft room files click here} a bitty cupcake liner was flattened and embellished with a bow, a glittered tag, and a star stick pin. I filled it with red cinnamon candies.... a little fireworks for the tongue :D


This is probably my favorite project in this collection! A tube adorned and embellished to look like a firecracker...fun!!! A sparkly centerpiece or over the top party favor that can be filled with goodies too! Save those paper towel tubes, and you will be ready to make several of these!


Whats more fun than a jar filled with sparklers? A decorated jar of course!, use a flattened silver cupcake liner and a bold polka dot star, add another crimped SRM sticker on a banner and a glitter encrusted clothespin....now that's festive!


There are so many party possibilities with this brand new cartridge, I think this is one of the best cartridge ideas yet! As a party lover, its shooting to my top 10 favorites list! {for realsies}
Be sure to check in at the official Cricut blog to see all of today's hello Thursday releases, but I warn you there will be so much eye candy that you may end up with serious paper cravings!!!! enjoy my friends!
