Mike used a variety of techniques and some stamps to make this 4th of July Card using one of the frame sets from the A2 Frame Card Set 1. Starting with the oval frame, he created a Statue of Liberty scene with fireworks with a silhouetted city silhouette. A variety of mediums were used to create this effect, including but not limited to multiple shimmery embossing powders. Read about all the details on his blog here.

To celebrate the upcoming Independence day, I created this SVG design. Make this 4th of July Tealight Holder for free.
NOTE: This SVG has been updated to make it a bit easier to assemble. Size is also slightly larger, has a version of the holder with solid scorelines and method of attaching vellum is different. If you already purchased the file, you may download the updated version by signing into your Account.
If you do not have it yet, here is the link!
NOTE: This design contains intricate cuts, so make sure you pick appropriate paper. Fibrous or really thick paper will not cut well. Each machine handles cuts differently.
This tealight is easy to assemble. Assembly instructions are included within the ZIP download. Here is an overview of the process.
After cutting out the files, piece together optional vellum inserts. You can make the box without the inserts. Use vellum or translucent paper, for best results.
Score and fold the box. Glue the vellum inserts to the inside of the box and glue on star and firecracker pieces.
Add glue/adhesive to the side tab and glue to the inside of the opposite side of the box. Fold over the side flaps and close bottom of the box, tab in. No glue is required on the bottom of the box, as I wanted to make sure this box could be stored easily. To store, simply open the bottom tab and flaps and fold flat!
It just looks cool when the light flickers! Here is what a few of mine looked like!
Go now and make some for your household or for a friend/family member. Share this info with a good friend! Happy 4th, you all!
Here is a card I designed using the Free USA Banner Box SVG. The card is A2 size. I simply used one banner as and a simple background, tag with 4th of July image from Cricut, and a few star brads.
I first added the star brads to the paper background, to add a little dimension.
Then I added the enlarged banner from the USA Banner Box design after adhering the paper background to the card.
I then added the tag with twine to finish it off. The tag and image are from Cricut’s Design Space library.
This is just another simple card project you can make with this free USA Banner Box SVG file. I thought it might be fun to make an actual banner one of these days out of the same file, with just a little bit of modification!
Here is a new free design in time for Memorial Day and Fourth of July. It is the USA Banner Box that is quick and easy to make. I thought it would be nice to hold plastic utensils, as shown in the photo.
It is a quick way to dress up a table.
The file contains two SVG files, one with the box and the other with the banner panels. If you do not know how to work with ZIP files, see the Frequently Asked Questions page.
- After cutting out the files, score the box to get ready for assembly.
- Piece together the flag panels.
- Glue all panels on the box piece, shown.
- Add glue to the 2 tabs located on the 2nd and 4th panels, as shown above and attach to the bottom of the box. It should look like this.
- Lastly, adhere the side and bottom tab to the inside of the box and enjoy the result!
Add a flag, ribbons, shiny things, or nothing! You can make it anything you want!
