Independence Day Blog Hop with Operation Write Home


Hello and Happy 4th of July!! 
You probably came from Paula's Blog but if you just happened to stumble across my blog go to the Stars and Stamps Blog to start!! 

I used Sketch #06 as inspiration for my card!


To put the card together I used the Mono Adhesive Permanent which is one of the awesome prizes for the hop! The papers are from Momenta. The sentiment is from Joy's Life and I used Tombow Foam Tabs to glue it on the card.

You can make this magic wand using this tutorial for the star, for the stick just use a rectangle and roll it. Use the Mono Multi Liquid Glue to keep it from rolling away. To glue the 3D star on the card just use Tombow Foam Tabs.


Leave a comment on all the blogs for the chance to win this amazing Tombow Prize!!
