Fourth of July Invitation Artist on the Block

Wow...June already and time to start thinking about your Fourth of July plans, well first I guess we need to do Fathers Day (smile) but if you are planning a get together for the Fourth of July  I want to share with you a fun invitation box that you can send out to your guest using the XL Scoreboard from Eleen Hull/Sizzix. 
I made my in the XL Scoreboard but remember they come in two smaller sizes. I cut the USA from a die set that I have and the Place in time Paper from Graphic 45. I love to use Graphic 45 papers because of all the quick and fun embellishments that they have to go along with their papers. 
 Of course I also love metals, wood, ribbon, etc so I just love using the metal clock and wood pieces on the sides of my Artist Block.
 I made my little flag using small strips of paper and just gluing them just under the metal hanger that I had, adding the small wood stars and people to finish the side of my box off.
I filled the box with tissue paper that I cut up using my Martha Stewart multi blade scissors. Taking one of  the post cards from the Place in Time Journal Papers I wrote my invitation and glued onto and insert I made for my box. I added a tag to a stick and placed it into the box so it would peek out to one side.
Here is a closer look at the front of my Artist Block, I hope you enjoyed my Fourth of July Invitation Artist Block today and think about how you can use the Scoreboard Die from Eileen Hull/Sizzix to make some easy and fun invitations.
