Tutorial Tuesday: 4 Great Patriotic Crafts

On July 4, 1776,  the United States adopted the Declaration of Independence, separating from the Kingdom of Great Britian. Today we mark this pivotal moment in our nation's history with a federal holiday full of pomp and circumstance, burgers and hot dogs, and family and friends.

To help you get in the spirit of liberty, here's a round up of four great craft ideas that you can try using images from our Fourth of July Sale!
