Happy 4th of July!

Good Morning Trendy Twiners!
Jessica here from Chick-n-Scrap.

The 4th of July is right around the corner and I have a fun project to share using the Large Kraft Pillow Boxes and my all time favorite Trendy Twine~the Stars and Stripes!
To make my project, I started with the Large Kraft Pillow Box and wrapped some DoodleBug Designs~Patriotic Parade paper around the center of the box. Next using 2 different sized Stitched Stars from My Creative Time, I die cut them out using matching paper. For the center of the star, I wrapped several back and forth rows of the Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine and then added another star to the back side of my embellishment to hold everything in place. It was then popped up onto the front of my pillow box using some foam pop dots.
Finally for the sentiment, I grabbed a toothpick and made a flag. I took the Teeny Tag Die from My Creative Time, stamped my sentiment using the Teeny Tag Holidays stamp set, wrapped some more Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine around the toothpick and tied it all together with a simple bow.

 Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:
10 Kraft Pillow Boxes - Large
