4th of July is one of my all time favorite holidays - JUST LOVE IT! The colors, the celebrations, parades, parties, fireworks - who could ask for more fun?
I was trying to think of some fun decorative ideas for parties. A few weeks ago I shared with you an invitation, and today I thought I would alter a six pack box to use as a table caddy.
Here are the supplies I used to alter the caddy. In addition to the supplies listed below, you need to upcycle a beverage six pack box. I used two sheets of each of these papers to complete the box. Measurements will vary depending on your box. I started with the bottom and completely cover it wrapping about a half an inch up the sides to keep my utensils from falling out. Then covered the over hang with the side panels.
I used Canvas Corps' Royal Blue And White Stars Reverse Paper as my base. Then made pinwheels with the Red & White Ribbon Stripe paper then cut them in half and topped these beautiful Red Canvas Banners. Tied the banner with the Red Canvas corp Twine bows. Then add a little sparkle with party garland, cake pick star Tucked in a Small American Flag as a topper, and this catty turned out FAB!
Our high school team colors are royal blue, white, and red I think I may modify this caddy after the 4th for a tailgate caddy by removing the flag and adding a football!
**Side note: Place a water bottle in the back center spot to weigh the box down so it doesn't blow off the table. You can camouflage the bottle with paper napkins. **
Here is a second invitation I made with the scraps from this project.
Thanks for stopping in today,
