Patrotic Centerpiece/Treat Holder

Here is my centerpiece/treat holder. I was assigned table decorations for our annual Fourth of July Party. This is what I made. It just so happens that the Heart 2 Heart challenge this week is anything patriotic, so this is also my entry for the challenge (stars or stripes were required). This also meets the criteria for another challenge at Paper Cubed (P3). Paper cubed is all about three dimensional paper items. Check it out at http://www.papercubed.blogspot.com/ there is more to paper than just a card.
Although this centerpeice is very Patriotic it could easily be changed for a birthday or other holidays like Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas. I like this project because it really shows that one's card making/scrap booking supplies can be used for more than the intended purpose. It isn't just for card making. What do you think?
Items listed below are from Close To My Heart.
Inks: Tulip, Moonstruck and Indian Corn Blue.
Card stock: White Daisy, Outdoor Denim, and Tulip.
Stamp Sets: Adorable, In The Month Of July, A Twinkle, Calendar, Save The Date, Classmates Alphabet, and It's A Party.
Ribbon: Tulip and Outdoor Denim.
Other items: Bamboo Skewers, white ribbon and eyelets
