Happy 4th of July Table Center Piece

Happy 4th of July!
I hope you are having a wonderful day. It's 94 degrees here in Kalamazoo today. We were going to have a BBQ and eat outside but instead we are eating inside. I made his table center piece this morning.

This was taken outside but after I realized how hot it was we moved inside. I had trouble getting a good photo due to the shade on our deck.
This is a better photo. You can see how sparkly the Red and Silver  Glimmer paper is.

I used a left over vase and filled it with bubble wrap. It works well to hold the Bamboo Skewers in place.
Next, I cut out Whisper White, Not Quite Navy, Red and Silver Glimmer paper using the Perfect Pennants Bigz L die using the Big Shot.
I made the flowers using Fancy Flower and 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punches. For the center of the flowers I used Boho Blossoms and 1/2" Circle Punches.
Ribbon: 5/8" Whisper White Organza , 1/8" Taffeta, and now retired 5/8 Night of Navy Satin Ribbon.
Sticky Strip worked great to adhere the dies to each other,  to the Bamboo Skewers and for the ribbon.
 I wrapped 5/8" Night of Navy Satin Ribbon and 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon around the vase, using Sticky Strip again.

Happy Stampin'
