made in the USA

here's a quick and fun idea to spruce up those 4th of july outfits.

supplies:
- metal lid from a can of frozen juice concentrate
- glue
- blue martha stewart glitter
- printout (found HERE)
- pin back
- hot glue


{first} print out the words. 
{second} cut out a circle. i used a 2.5" circle punch. you could just use your metal lid and trace a circle.
{third} put a good amount of glue on the letters USA. then use a toothpick to spread the glue over the entire letters.


{fourth} sprinkle the glitter over the glue and shake off the excess.
{fifth} when it's dry, glue it to the metal lid.
{sixth} on the backside of the lid hot glue a pin back.

 
now you're all set for your 4th of july fun!!
