Happy Fourth of July

These will be hard to come by some day - mark my words.  Already some paper companies are featuring toilet tissue rolls without the cardboard tubes.  What will mothers of toddlers, nursery school teachers, scout leaders, and many other crafters do without them! 

When my children come to visit now and open up the linen closet in either bathroom, they will find my "stash".  It's not yet overtaken anything but it was about time to use some of them in a project. 

These are supposed to be representative of firecrackers.  Of course, they would have been much more realistic with a fuse of some sort coming out, but I was in a hurry as usual. 

There is a non-food treat inside the tubes which are just wrapped in blue tissue paper and tied with a red bow and tag stamped with the 4th of July stamp set.  The star is stamped and punched out and then just quickly glued to the front. 

Today's photo prompt is red, white, and blue and though this project is, I have something else planned for later!
