4th of July banner
I normally post a homemade card project on Thursday, but this week I am sharing a different paper craft.
A patriotic banner in honor of the upcoming holiday of Independence Day.
You will need:
Patterned scrapbook paper
Embellishments (stickers, star confetti, beads, glitter etc.)
Cut out star template (outside the black line) and trace three stars onto cardstock.
Cut black line off star template, so you have a slightly smaller star.
Trace three times onto patterned scrapbook paper.
Cut out and glue to the front of cardstock stars.
Glue a strip of scrapbook paper across front of star.
Turn star over and trim off excess paper.
You should end up with this.
Print "Let Freedom Ring" (or saying of your choice) on white paper. Cut out and glue on slightly larger rectangles of cardstock.
Glue to front of stars.
Punch holes on both sides of stars.
Thread long length of ribbon through.
Hang and enjoy! I hope you have enjoyed this week's project!
