Summer is a time to celebrate. July 4th is one of my favorite holidays to gather family and friends outdoors and celebrate with food, fun and fireworks. I wanted to add a little pizzaz to this years celebration so I hit the crafting room to create the perfect patriotic centerpiece with brilliant colored cardstock. With just a few easy steps you can have your own sparkler centerpiece. You can take the techniques I used and switch up the colors for any occasion.
