4th of July Treats

It's hard to believe that the 4th of July is in one week. I'm looking forward to seeing my sister and niece who will be flying in from Florida for the holiday. I've been planning the menu and getting things ready. I just hope the weather will cooporate, so far so good.

I made these cute little treats for my niece and nephews for the holiday. I used an empty can and wrapped blue cardstock around the center and red cardstock to the top and bottom. Then around the red I wrapped white ribbon. I punched out a bunch of white stars using different size punches and attached them to the blue cardstock. I filled the cans with pin wheels, sparklers, bubbles, rubber balls, snappers, pixie sticks and glow sticks. I hope the kids enjoy them.

I don't know if I'll have anything else to share with you this week. I will be busy with work, taking my parents to the doctors, getting the house ready for my guests, baking, etc. I hope you had a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by.
