Happy Independence Day!

How about some patriotic party elements to celebrate? ---and link to Crafty Secrets July Linky Party, since Crafty Secrets American Beauty stamp set is full of fabulous and fun patriotic images.
 This little container is a cute way to serve some snacks to guests, especially when paired with a cool drink served in blue mason jar with decorated paper straw. The snack container was made with a Silhouette cut file. The 4th of July and stars from  American Beauty were stamped, fussy cut, and attached to die cuts from PTI.

The USA stamp, also from American Beauty, is a another neat little element to add to this drinking straw.

I'm hoping the sun will break through  by this afternoon so we can fill these and head outdoors.

Happy Birthday, USA!
