Fourth of July Treats

Hi Stampers! I am excited to share the project I created for this week's Chi Chi Memories blog post! I have altered this adorable paint can that was originally filled with Christmas tags - no really, I didn't buy the tags so I could have the can later, I swear!

I started with my Happy 4th of July tag from the 4th of July Stamp Set which had been colored with Spectrum Noir Markers. I layered it onto a 2 1/2" circle punched from a scrap of paper I had stamped little stars onto, then added a ruffle of crepe paper to the back.

I punched some little banners to decorate the rim around the top of the can and embellished them with glittery stars and BoBunny Jewels.

I added a burst of ribbon to the handle using a variety from my scrap basket.

A little button and a few extra stars add finishing touches on the front of the can! The last step was to embellish the top. Once again I used a 2 1/2" punched circle, along with a die cut star, a scrap of ribbon, and a punched heart.

This piece came together so easily, I could have kept going but I really had to stop adding to it because I was simply running out of room! For now the can is sitting on my shelf, but a good friend just may be the lucky recipient of this little piece! It's not too late for you to stop by the Chi Chi Memories Store to get your own 4th of July stamps so you can make something fun for the upcoming holiday!

Before I leave, I just wanted to let you know that Chi Chi Memories is releasing a new stamp set next week. It's super cute and I can't wait to share a few projects using it in the coming weeks. Here's a sneak peek for you:
