Do you remember where you were the first time you saw a fireworks show? There’s nothing quite like watching fireworks dazzle across the sky (cue all the oohs and ahhs!), and with America’s Independence Day happening this weekend, we reckon there will be plenty of people taking some fantastic fireworks photos. Gather up your Festive Fourth papers and Firecracker Punch, because blog contributor Sachiyo Omitsu has a fantastic fireworks scrapbook layout for you to try out!
Last year, our son watched a fireworks show for the first time. He was surprised by the loud noises of the first few fireworks, but after the initial shock, he was mesmerized by the lights and sights. His first reactions to fireworks were priceless and was an unforgettable experience.
To create this layout you will need:
- Festive Fourth Paper Pack or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Festive Fourth Stickers or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Firecracker Punch or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- 12-inch Trimmer or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- All-Purpose Scissors or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Repositionable Tape Runner or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
- Foam Squares or (Shop Canada | Shop Australia)
Step 1: Use the fireworks patterned paper as the base.
Step 2: Punch 10 times using the Firecracker Punch with navy patterned paper. Cut the tails of five firecrackers to make a “spark” with the All-Purpose Scissors. Trim the tails off from the remained five firecrackers. Layer two firecrackers — pairing a red and navy, with and without tails.
Step 3: Cut the light blue patterned paper to measure 1-1/2″ x 12″ and adhere it to the base, leaving 1/8″ on the right. Adhere the five firecrackers with Foam Squares.
Step 4: Cut out a “4th of July” banner and “America!” tag from the mat patterned paper. Adhere them to the left top of the base.
Step 5: Add stickers using Foam Squares on some for added dimension.

I really love this layout and appreciate Omitsu’s talent. Perfect for our 4th of July photos. Looking forward to getting pictures of family. I don’t have the punch but can work something out. Thank you.
Love this layout & the story about your son. There is something special about the wonder in their eyes & voice when experiencing new things. You captured it with your journaling.
