Celebrate America!

The upcoming week is the week of the 4th of July. Therefore, I have pulled out all my red, white and blue papers to get started on my holiday cards and projects for this week.
I have recently become some what obsessed with treat containers. I even have a board on Pinterest where I post any sort of treat project I find. I think I have to thank the Jaded Blossom and SVG Cutting Files Design Teams for this new obsession of mine!

I found this simple but oh so cute Uncle Sam cute file along with the tube holder box and stars over at SVG Cutting Files.

I cut the box to measure  2.5" tall and then sized all the other elements to fit that. 
I gave Uncle Sam  a face from the PKS Simple Sallies Faces stamp set. The sentiment is from Stamp Annie Thing Party in America Stamp set.

I used the Jaded Blossom Patriotic Candies to decorate the tube top.

Holiday M&M's complete my little treat project.  You can find the treat tubes on the Jaded Blossom site here
