Fireworks Display

Hi there friends! Brandie here with a tutorial for a cute 4th of July Fireworks Display (SVG, Silhouette) These fireworks are so cute and simple to make. They can be added to a vase, mason jar, or even a fake potted plant like I did here. 

First fold all of the score lines as mountain folds (away from you). Then glue the decorative panels in place. (I glued the long side tab first and then glued the decorative panels which made this step a little harder for myself.) Glue the long side tab creating a octogen shaped tube. Working from left to right glue the top tabs together until you have two tabs left. The last two tabs can be glued together at the same time. Pinch the top points together then flip the firework over and use a pencil or paint brush handle to secure the tabs on the inside of the firework. 

Now its time to embellish the firework, curl the tails, then using hot glue add a paper straw or bamboo skewer to the inside of the firework.  

I resized the firework and made two smaller ones. The paper collection I used is America by Echo Park Paper Company. 

That's it for me toady. Thanks for stopping by!

Lori Whitlock Creative Team June 2020 Blog Hop

Hi there friends and welcome to the blog hop! The order this month is Traci, Kathy, Anita, Brandie, Aimee, Ashley, Cathy, and Michelle

I made the 3D USA Décor Blocks (SVG, Silhouette). This little décor project was easy and fun. It can be altered to fit many styles as well as holidays. 

I reduced the size of mine a little to fit inside a tiered tray. I also suggest adding some dried beans or rice to the inside of blocks to help hold them down when placed on a shelf. The paper collection I used is America by Echo Park paper. 

I hope you all are doing well and staying safe. Thanks for hoping along with us today! Aimee is up next. 


Here is the discount code for June!

Good Luck!!

Accordion Fold Dad Card

Hi there friends! I am sharing a different take on the Dad accordion Fold Card (SVG, This file is coming soon to the Silhouette Store). The original is darling with the little tools but I have an outdoor loving father in law that will enjoy getting this camping themed card. I just love a card that that can be easily altered with papers and embellishments. I used the Summer Adventure paper collection by Echo Park Paper Co. This card will also fold flat and fit in a A2 envelope. 

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by!
