Fireworks Vases + Happy Fourth!

July 4th, 2011

I have a confession to make, I am crazy about Japanese washi tape.  So much potential for cuteness in one little roll, I am smitten!  I was browsing Etsy a month ago and stumbled across Pretty Tape.  It was then that my love affair with this charming crafting tool began.  I ordered a few rolls with plans to use them on birthday or holiday gifts.

With the washi tape and some white ceramics, I also made some fun fireworks vases for the Fourth of July.

Hello and happy Sunday on this long weekend!  I’m back, bringing you another round of great projects found online in our continuing ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ series. 

Sorry if you missed it last weekend, I was on the road so I took a week off, but now the series is back with more good stuff ~ I teamed up with Abi to round up some inspiring finds, hope you enjoy them!
