I made this yesterday getting ready for the forth. I think it's sweet:
|USA banner in red, white book page and blue. Hung with a dainty red and white polka dot ribbon.|
|Thought it looked cute in Lucas' room. There are so many variations you can make. Always keep you eye out for streamers at garage sales. So many paper projects you can make.|
Here's what you need....streamers, a book page, a glue stick and some die cuts...for the letters USA. I don't have a Cricut of any kind. If I did I wouldn't sleep for months...I would be crazy making everything. So I rely on store bought die cuts like these. I love K&Company. This little chipbox will keep me crafting for a long time. I tend to purchase things like these when they are running sales. I got them for 40% at Michael's. The crepe paper is something I ALWAYS find at garage sales. The blue crepe paper is Vintage and has a lovely scalloped edge. I found it with a roll of cream as well. It cost pennies.

Here is great tutorial on how to make the ruffle. Like the flower about this one is more free flowing. On my banner wanted the outcome to be flat.
