All That Stickles Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Star Spangled Blog Hop brought to you by the All that Stickles design team!

"Oh say can you see... by the gleam of Stickles. Oh so proudly we post, our patriotic projects" (if you sing it to the tune of Star Spangled Banner, we promise it makes sense ;)

In non-musical form: Today the All that Stickles design team has created a variety of patriotic-themed projects using our favorite sparkly embellishment - Stickles!

There are many birthdays celebrated amongst my family and friends right around the 4th of July, so for my project today, I made a Patriotic gift bag.

I used the Print and Cut feature of my Silhouette for the flag, then added Christmas Red Stickles and Crystal Stickles on the stripes and stars of the flag.  I used a Close to my Heart stamp set for the stars hanging down, and used True Blue Stickles on those. The bag is tied with ribbons from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Company. Here's a close up of the Stickle-y goodness of the flag...
It makes you want to put your hand over your heart, doesn't it?
