DIY 4th of July Place Cards

Okay I'm going to let you all in on a little secret about me and blogging: whenever I can't think of anything interesting to blog about I make place cards. There I said it.

But, with that being said, I did come up with a last minute do-it-yourself place card for the 4th of July holiday that's kind of cute and super easy to make. Patriotic rockets...



Here's what you'll need:
Patriotic-themed scrapbook paper
Adhesive (I used hot glue, but tape will do)
Shoelaces
Scissors

Step 1: Cut out a circle in the scrapbook paper (I used a roll of duct tape as a template).



Step 2: Cut a slit halfway up the circle.



Step 3: Twist the paper into a cone shape and glue the ends together.



Step 4: Cut out a rectangle in the scrapbook paper (I used a different pattern for contrast).



Step 5: Roll the paper into a cylinder shape and glue the edge.



Steps 6,7,8:
Glue the cone on top of the cylinder, then cut and glue a small piece of the shoelace inside the bottom of the cylinder. Finally, add the name on front. Sorry no pics for the multiple steps, I got lazy.



Hope all you US readers have a great 4th of July holiday!
