Happy Birthday America!!

I threw away a ribbon spool. A couple days later, I walked by the trash can in my craft room and it caught my eye--a wonderful spool nestled amongst a bunch of trash! Well, I rescued it then decorated it with paper from the Fanfare paper pack. I made paper medallions and decorated them with the stamp set, Jubliation. (June's stamp of the month) I also used stamps from July's stamp of the month, American celebration and with the help of some wooden skewers; TaDa--a fun decoration for Independence Day!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
