Getting Ready for the Fourth!

Party Invitation
Everything's coming up Red, White and Blue here as preparations are being made for the 4th of July holiday. You are invited to the party. This is a cute and easy invitation a neighbor brought to me that was used for her family reunion.
It is simple to make. Here are the directions to make it:
You need 7 Popsicle sticks.Paint half of four sticks blue. When the blue paint dries, paint white or silver stars on the blue part. (These stars were made with a silver paint pen.) Of those four sticks paint the other half of two of them red, and half of two of them white. (This completes the top half of the flag)Paint one more stick red.Paint two more sticks white.( This completes the bottom half of the flag.)
Now in the spaces you can write the party info. (You can add more sticks to the bottom if you have additional information to write)
Put all the sticks in an envelope and mail your invitation. The recipient has to put it together like a puzzle to figure out the invitation information. Have fun with this one. You could use it for a family reunion, birthday party, or good ol' Fourth party. Send your's out soon just in time for the Fourth of July! Enjoy!!
