Hello, Papercrafting Fanatics! Today I am up on the American Crafts blog with a patriotic home decor project!
I love to die cut and paper piece with beautiful patterned papers, and so when I was brainstorming what I wanted to create for this upcoming 4th of July, I decided it would be fun to create a patriotic shadowbox out of paper.
At the bottom of the shadowbox I created my own flag using my paper trimmer. I cut off the ribbon tails from one of the Star Gazer Shooting Star Embellishments to decorate the flag … and then added a large red gem to the center
(Stickers & Bling collection).
I added a bright blue ribbon around the outside, tying it like a present with a fluffy bow on the top! I then finished the frame off by creating a few layered flower embellishments with my Knock Out Flower punches. The leaves are punched and hand cut from Leaf Textured Cardstock, and the flower centers are the Adhesive Flair stickers from the Star Gazer collection
Do you decorate for the 4th of July? What will you create for your collection this year?
