I made this band for the 4th of July and haven't taken it off since. Infact, both of my girls have one, too. Everyone needs to show off their American Pride and this is a really fun way to do it. The blue stiped beads work really well with the red and white polka dots. It also has red, shimery white, foil blue and silvery foil. Show your support any time of year, not just July!
