Hi friends, it’s Mary Ann! Here in the states we will be celebrating the 4th of July holiday this week with lots of fireworks and backyard barbecues, so I thought I would make a fun piece of décor to decorate my home and bbq table. I’ve used pieces from both the Graceful Season collection and the Midday Medley collection to create it!
To start, I cut the floral paper to 8” x 12”, and the stripe paper to 5” x 12”. I added the stripe paper to the floral paper and glued the long edges together to make a cylinder. This will be the body of the firework.
To make the “starburst”, I cut a 1” strip of floral paper (the piece that was left over from making the body of the firework works great for this!) and rolled it into a small cylinder. Next I added small pieces of red and yellow strips of quilling paper from the Quilled Card Making Kit, topped several of them off with some punched stars, and then glued the starburst to the top of the firework.
