Can you believe that July 4th is exactly 2 weeks away??  Don't fret- we've got plenty of quick, easy, and very affordable (I'm talking just a few bucks!) decorating ideas in the July issue of Living.  Here's a sneak peak from the Patriotic Clip Art story I worked on-

Patriotic Clipart Fireworks

You'll find the clip-art and how-to on the web, but go to the magazine for the full story and all projects.

And here are some shots I took while developing for this story-

  • Love this project! Can't wait to try making some of these.

  • Really cute presentation!

  • I like the red and blue flag clip art with the white background (as in the photo above). I only found the "negative" versions on the website. Is the "positive" image version with the white background available? Thanks.

    That clip art didn't make the final cut for the story Heather- sorry! You can find four versions of the flag toothpick clip art on the web- flags and President, each in red and blue.

  • This project is so cute. I'm going to stay with friends for the 4th, and it will be great to bring some party favors! The candy filled top hats are genius.
