Red, White, and Blue Treats for Independence Day | Colorado Craft Company

July 01, 2020

Hi everyone,  Colorado Crat Company sent me some new awesome goodies to share ideas with you and I decided to use first a stamp set called lovely Legs Red, White and Blue

Even though I'm not American,  I got plenty of family and friends over there.  I also lived in Miami Beach in  2000 and gosh it is beautiful over there.  I love the USA!

So  I really wanted this stamp set as for the very first time I have been enabled to celebrate American Independence Day through papercraft with all of you.

Happy July 4th in advance !!

Why in advance? Because if you got lovely Legs Red , White and Blue you still got time to make last-minute super easy and quick mini treat boxes and spread love!!

If you don't have it yet, It is never too late! 

Lovely Legs Red, White and Blue is a 15 pieces stamp set.  

It is very original and unique, not only because of its theme, the "lovely legs concept" but also because contains layered stamps so that you can easily stamp different components of an image or a sentiment using different ink colours.

You can see how to make these treat boxes in a very old video here. 

These boxes measure 2-1/4" ( width)  x 1- 1/2" (height) and to make them  you will need an Envelope Punch Board and 6x6 inches sheets of paper.

  • I  used Catalina Splash (blue) and Cranberry Bliss ( red) inks by FSJ to stamp the labels.
  • To cut out the stamped images, I used a circle dies.  
  • To add an extra decorative element to the box topper, I die cut stars our of gold glitter cardstock using a die from Stacking Stars die set by Honey Bee Stamps 
  • I keep the box closed with a ribbon band that is held in place by a glue dot.
Last but not least, I want to send my love to every single American. Although it is hard for me to find the right words my heart goes to the community that has been wounded by racism.

I want to send encouragement to the Afro American Community. I feel for you and it saddens my soul to see the injustice and all you have to endure as a community historically. 

You are brave. You are strong. You are truly incredible.


That's all for today.

Happy Crafting
