Today it is all about Summer and Celebrating Independence Day! We created this super fun flag using Dollar Store Straws (red and blue) a 5x7 Canvas, Scissors, and the Xyron Creative Station! Yes it is just that easy friends! Check out our video (pre-recorded Live) below and watch how easy it is to make this fun flags.
What did you guys think? Super fun and easy right? There are so many different uses for these cute flags. Name cards at that family BBQ, a fun Kid Craft to do with your kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews! The perfect Home decor piece for your home.
(Quick instructions on how many straws and what size to cut the straws if you are using a 5x7 flat canvas
* Blue Straws- Qty- 11 cut at 3"
* Red Straws- Qty- 11 cut at 4"
* Red Straws- Qty- 9 cut at 7"
We created the Freedom Cut out on our Cricut using Pic Monkey (font Coffee Break) and uploading our image into design space. You can get the image here and upload it into design space. We then cut it 4x6 and cut it out of blue cardstock. We then used the Xyron Creative Station to attach the freedom on the front of the flag.
We hope that you liked today's project using the Xyron Creative Station. This is a sponsored post, all opinions and ideas are our own.

Adventure Awaits! We are so excited to share with you this fun Bridal Shower with the Theme: Adventure Awaits. Creating all of the fun decor pieces was easy when you use the Cricut Explore Air 2 and the Cricut Essential Tool set. We were able to use a variety of materials to create our one of a kind decorations. The Bride is Madge's daughter, the excitement on her face when she walked in to the shower was priceless. She was in Awe... with how beautifully everything came together. The guests were even taking pictures and asking how things were made. Of course the answer was always "it's easy with Cricut"! What tools do you need, and how do you use them? Watch our video below to see the Essential Tool set in action, along with close-ups of the projects.
To welcome guests to the shower we purchased a map poster from Wal Mart, then used the NEW holographic vinyl in blue to add "Adventure Awaits". For "Enjoy the ride" we created our image in PicMonkey, then uploaded it to Cricut Design Space. We cut it from cream cardstock, glitter cardstock and mounted on a piece of pattern paper.
We had an ice cream bar. The Cricut pen came in handy to create our labels. The labels were also created in Pic Monkey and uploaded to Design Space. Where we edited from the cut feature to the write feature. We then inserted our Black 0.4 Tip, Black pen into our Cricut Machine and it worked it's magic!
The Bridal party was excited to show off their new hats that were made with the iron on vinyl. Again, the "Adventure Awaits" sign was created using the black Cricut Pen.
"Enjoy the ride" treat bags were also a hit! These little muslin bags were the talk of the party! People could not get over how cute they were. Using the Gold Foil Iron On, made it easy to make several of these in just a few minutes. Would you like to create your own "Enjoy the Ride" gift bags? Click HERE

We are so excited to share with you our Social Artworking Party that we hosted! This "Girls Night Out" was a blast! When we received our box of goodies with the Canvases, Easels, Transfer Paper, Pattern Image, Paint, and Paintbrushes we were in Awe.... Everything was neatly packed and ready for us to host this fun party! First things first! We had to complete our painting so that we could teach the class! Midge immediately went to work following the step by step instructions that were included for us. Everything came together perfectly! Midge painted our example, so then we were ready to create an event on Facebook and invite our friends. We posted a picture of what we were painting so our guests knew what to expect. We had a great response and had our guests RSVP so we knew how many spots we needed.
The day was here and it was time to get things ready! We bought refreshments and supplied the "drinks" (yes, everyone drank responsibly) and set the tables with the supplies needed before our guests arrived.
It was time for our guests to arrive! We created this fun video showing how our amazing Social Artworking "Girls Night" went! Be sure to watch the video for more details!
