It's time to...

Strike up the band...
Relax with friends...
And remember to treat the hostess of your 4th of July BBQ
with some sparkle and cheer!

(The parade order is at the bottom of this post!)

Dress up a 6 pack of sparklers with a fun tag...featuring
a punny Joy's Life Sentiment!
(The sparkler box is so festive, I decided to let it shine on its own!)

I used Removable Glue Dots © so the tag could be easily removed and enjoyed by the hostess.
Then the guests can use the sparklers when it gets dark! 
A win-win-win situation!

 This one comes from "Pun in the Sun."

And, to top off the tag, I used Simply Red, Simply While, & Simple Blue rumple ribbon
from Lovebug Creations "Star Spangled Collection!"  Tied it all up with some tri colored twine from Timeless Twine!

Now, off you go to see the rest of the hop!
