All American Blog Hop

Welcome to the All American Blog Hop.
If you are joining me from Cards by CG at
Then you are in the right place.

If you just happened across my blog and would
like to play along in our fun hop, you can go to
Crazy About Cricut at
and start at the beginning.

Thank you for joining me for the All American
Blog Hop! Each of us bloggers were ask to create
a Summer theme project. Some of the projects
might include Family picnics, BBQ's, 4th of July
and lots more.

I decided to make a couple different 4th of July
sweet treats that can be handed out to your
guest. The first project is a pop top can filled
with fun goodies.

I will have step by step instructions on my
blog in the next few coming days.
Let me tell you this is so simple!!

With these treat bags I took small zip top bags
added some gummies (I found at Winco) measured
some paper for a topper and added extra Bling.
(Because who doesn't like Bling!)

This picture tells the whole story. I bought some
Ring Pops at Dollar Tree. And added the little
tag with some twine. Let Freedom Ring!

This project is a very simple one for anyone who
has extra canning jar. I cut out some 4th of
July paper punched a whole (for the straw) and
added it to the top of the jar. The Red Vines
were put into some pretzel bags I found at
Michael's. 6 Red Vines fit perfectly. I then
added a strip of paper around the Red Vines and
added few glittery stars.

This last picture has the 4th of July card I made for
this Blog Hop but, Blogger was being Blogger and
acting up again and wouldn't let me load it. So, I will
have it posted next Thursday for the Red, White &
Blue challenge over at Crazy About Cricut.

I hope you enjoyed my projects.
