Red, White & Blue Centerpiece

Hi Everyone!
Have I gone too far??? Someone needs to take the burlap from me before I wallpaper my house with it :) I LOVE it!
So I set out to create some tags for the 4th of July BBQ and Beach party we have every year. I just wanted some simple tags to decorate some gift bags for the kids. Well I saw these glass containers sitting in my cabinet and thought of my burlap obsession and well my tags got attached to these and now they are the centerpieces for the 4th table. I'll just have to make more tags. Hope you like my fun centerpieces, I plan to fill them with licorice and popcorn YUM! I have a great idea for summer centerpieces using the same vases...stay tuned :)
