Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday Guest Designer

Hi Everyone!

Well today is the day! I am the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday Guest Designer.  I am so excited to be part of the challenge this week. This week the challenge is Happy 4th using Red, White, & Blue on your project!
Every year on the 4th we spend the entire day at the beach and then at night we watch the city fireworks show from the sand.  It's quite a day filled with fun, food, and friends and family. I decided to make a candy centerpiece for the buffet table.

I used the Wild Card Cartridge for the Ribbon/Award shape cut at 6".

Next I used the Stand and Salute Cartridge for the flag shape in the middle, cut at 3". I also used a 2.75" white circle for the back of the flag. I cut the 4th of July at 2.5" and used stickles on the 4.

Lastly, I added some Celebrate it ribbon and outlined everything with my white gel pen. I attached a bamboo skewer to the back, filled my bucket ($1.00 bin at Target last year)  with licorice and inserted my little 4th of July project and instant candy centerpiece. I can't wait to bring these to the party!

Please stop over to Fantabulous Cricut and check out all of the fun! They really have one of the most talented design teams I have ever seen.  So to be part of this challenge as the guest designer has been so excited and special to me! Thank you Fantabulous Cricut for giving me this opportunity and letting me have this experience!

Have a great Monday and GO Red, White & Blue!
