Fireworks and Fun with Helmar and the Red, White and Blue Blog Hop and Giveaway!

Welcome everyone to the second stop to the Helmar Red, White & Blue Blog Hop!

Why Red, White and Blue? Well our Design team is made up of three wonderful countries dawning these colors; Australia, Canada
(shy the blue) and America. So grab a glass of your favorite
beverage and lets get hopping. You should be coming from Helmar’s Blog (the start of the hop) please feel free to fallow my blog or Tweet, FB share or Pinterest share this project. Your next stop on this hop is listed at the bottom of this post.

I am so glad you have stopped by, I have a fun project I think you will love.

Taking some inspiration from Katy Perry… LOL!  This song gets me every time with the video.
Here I go Decorating on a Dollar again! Cans of “trash” and old book pages… left over ribbon scraps and some glue. LOL!

First choose your containers, tear out some old dictionary pages (I chose ones that had words like “Liberty”, “United” and “Patriotic”) Get some Red, White and Blue ribbon and paint out of your stash and start creating some Helmarific Fireworks!  

Helmar’s Craft Glue did the job with a thin layer of this stuff zigzagged across the outside of this Pringles Can, I quickly adhered the dictionary page that was per-measured and cut to fit. Using Helmar’s Craft Glue I adhered the rest of the embellishments as well.

I used a wooden skewer to create that lit fuse look on the top with some foil tissue paper and shredding scissors. I glued that through a hole I punched with my Crop-a-dile.

 This is the final project for the hanging fire work. I made this one the same way but the Pringles can is upside down (I didn’t have a lid for this one so the streams of torn fabric are glued into the inside of the can (I scratched it up so the glue would have some cardboard to stick to) with Helmar’s Craft Glue. Using my Big Bite Crop-a-dile I punched a whole in the side and ran ribbon through it tying a washer to the inside so it would not slip through.

 Here is a shorter, rounder firecracker I created for this set. It is made from a Slimfast can.
