{invite-july4th} srm

It is my turn on the SRM Sticker blog today!  I got to play with the You're Invited Blank Invite.  Let me tell you - the possibilities with this invite are endless

I had this little flag left over from a previous July 4th celebration and I had just picked up a spray of glittered red, white and blue stars from Michael's.  And as Gru from the movie, Despicable Me would say, "light bulb".   :) 

I cut the invite apart and laid each strip carefully on the white stripe of the flag. (you would want to fill out the invite prior to adhering to the flag)

I measured a piece of patterned paper and placed it in the tube and decorated the outside with some red 4th of July Stickers.  I drilled 2 small holes in the top of the tube and stuck the flag and spray inside.  I added some patriotic ribbon to the outside of the top to finish it.

My neighbors will be surprised when they find this invite on their porch this year!

Thanks for stopping by today, friends! I hope happy finds you in the best way today!


  1. We love Despicable Me around here, so 'lightbulb' gets said from time to time...
    Love that you turned the tube into a lovely base for your genius flag invitation! SRM is so lucky to have you, friend!

  2. This is so fun! What an awesome idea for an invitation!

  3. This is so amazing Jan! Love, love, love it!


If you want to be happy, be.
