Banner Day For The USA!


I decorate all Summer long with patriotic colors, so this little display
will get a lot of use in the upcoming months :)

I started with my personal cutting machine (you can use a Cricut or download your
own star image for tracing if needed) and a general 'star' shape that comes in the basic
shapes preset to my machine.  I set the size to 5.75" and began cutting from various
patterns of paper from the Patriotic Parade Collection by
DOODLEBUG DESIGN
For each star you will need at least FOUR cut-out stars in four different patterns.
I have a total of FIVE stars, so I cut a grand total of 20 stars.  
Place each star on a score board and score down the center as you can see above.  
Using a liquid glue (because you will make adjustments when lining up the stars) begin
adhering one side of a fold to another star until you have four different stars assembled together.

Now that my stars are assembled, I moved onto die-cutting three
hearts so that I could display the letters USA between the stars.  I added a paper straw
to each heart and attached a pinwheel to the top of each!  Decorate with 
sequins, Doodle Pops, Sprinkles, etc.

Attach the sections together by using the small end of a hole punch to create
holes at the ends of the stars and hearts; insert a medium sized brad through the holes.


Stands easily to act as a display for your Memorial Day buffet table or punch holes in the 
two stars on the end and hang as a banner!

Again, you can stack as many of the star shapes together to create ornaments,
individual place seating markers or favors!  Try smaller or larger sizes too...have fun with it!

Thank you for visiting me today :)

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV.

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
