An artful handmade 4th of July

Dear readers, I work with some of the coolest cats on the planet. I recently found out that my photographer, Trisha Zemp, does video too! Of course we had to do one for our 4th of July crafts, right?! And she nailed it!
Some of you foreigners are probably thinking, “You Americans and your patriotism.” I can say this because I have non-American husband and have lived abroad for a number of years. What can I say other than we just love creating a party behind every holiday. 
Every craft featured in this video is available as a tutorial in the next couple of days. Can you even handle it?! Stay tuned for a Lady Liberty floral crown, star-spangled crown, pop rock cake, berry lemonade popsicles, flag swag necklace. So much red, white, and blue! And seriously, these ladies really are that happy. 
Happy summer!

4th of July woven placemat

Happy Friday! I’m busy preparing for a fun surprise to announce on Monday but in the mean time, I thought I’d leave you this weekend with a little project just in time for the 4th of July: paper woven placemats. You might already have what you need already! I love the simple projects.
These do take a bit of time, especially if you’re making a few, but I think they’re pretty fun and add a thoughtful touch to the 4th.

American flag bunting

I’m not sure foreigners (ie: my husband) understand the squawk Americans make about our birthday, but we love it! In addition to major patriotism it’s also a celebration of summer, family, food, and fireworks. It’s a good day. Here’s a sweet garland idea that Trisha (you may know her for her great photography) came up with. Isn’t it great! And she’s Canadian…double points!
