This is a picture of everything all put together on my mantle and I like it, makes it festive!
Banner was created using the cartridge Independence Day cut at 9 inches. I did cut it out in chipboard first and then with cardstock and pattern papers in my stash. I wanted it to last.
This is the center of the banner and this piece was actually from something I got when I had my scrapbook store and figured I would use it someday. I did add the title on it. There is a cut on the cartridge that you can create the same effect.
I have seen several versions of blocks on Pinterest and this is my version. I had my husband cut me some of the scraps I make him keep in the garage (you never know when you will need them!) and I painted them and then took some sand paper along the edges. The blue paint was a little brighter than I wanted, but it was all I had and was too lazy to run to Walmart! The stars on the blue piece are from Independence Day cut at 4.5 inches and cut with vinyl and the sayings were both from Stand and Salute also cut with vinyl at 1.25 inches.
I was a little disappointed with my candy jar because it was so hard to photograph and I tried lots of ways so just left it alone. I cut from vinyl the star border from Holiday Cakes at 7 inches and made two to go around this jar and then I frosted the whole jar with etch cream. I went to the Dollar Tree and got the mints which have little flags on them!
No cricut here, just cut square pieces of paper and made my own pinwheels since I did not need many and put them on skewers from the dollar store.
I took my candles and cut paper to fit around and made it 1.5 inches and added the star from Stand and Salute cut at 2.25 inches. Hope you liked my 4th of July projects. I did try to make the Uncle Sam hat from one of the digitals, but could not get it right so gave up! Maybe next year.
I will be entering my project in a few challenges too!
