A Little 4th of July Swap

my sister and I did a little 4th of July swap.  Sometimes doing a huge swap is more overwhelming than it is worth.  we decided to keep it simple and fun. 

4th july swap 1 for beth

I picked up one of those cute tin pails from the $ area at Target and filled it up with a flag, poppers, fat quarter of fabric, pen, sticky notes, and a tag I made with a vintage inspired button pin attached.

 Here’s a close-up of the tag.  It’s a size 4 1/4 x 2  3/8 tag.  I used vintage clipart, ribbon, stamped with red/white/blue ink, and has a vintage inspired button pin she can take off and wear.

I made 3 extra tags that I put in my SHOP if anyone is interested 🙂
