Well, I might be very late for the 4th of July, but I prefer to think of it as early for Labor Day.
I designed these different crafts made from felt for Associated Content last month, and really enjoyed making them. I think they turned out very cute, and that makes the pretty effective for how simple they were to put together!
The articles have full materials lists and complete instructions. I've linked to the articl for each project under its picture. Enjoy!
