Hello Crafty Friends,
Welcome back for Day 2 of The Celebrate Freedom Blog Hop!! I would like to thank Lisa for hosting such a fun hop and for allowing me be a part of it!! Thanks Lisa :0) There were so many wonderful projects on Day One, I am sure you were all inspired as much as I was with all the crafty goodness!! So get ready to be inspired some more as we do it all over again for Day Two! If you just happened to stumble onto my blog and would like to play along with us. Please do so by starting over at Lisa's Blog and join in on all the fun as we celebrate The Fourth of July. If you came here from Tahi's Blog then you are right on track!
So for Day Two I decided to do a Party Decor Project. At first I had planned on making this a wall hanging project. But after I got started, I thought this would look great on a buffet table or dessert table for a Fourth of July get together. So I went with that and I love the end result, hope you do too!! Here are all the details of my project.
Stand & Salute
Other Items Used
Solid Cardstock - Bazzill Basics (Evening Surf & Ruby Slippers) Recollections (White)
Patterned Paper - Creative Imaginations
Martha Stewart Glitter - Garnet
Stickles - Gold
Pigment Ink - Red (For the edges)
We R Memory Keepers - Fancy Floss
White Gel Pen
In order to make a sturdy tabletop decoration, I knew I would have to use some type of chipboard. Cardstock alone was not going to work. So instead of buying some, I recycled and I used cereal boxes!! I cut the base twice and just glued them back to back, it's very sturdy now ;0)
Well I hope you have enjoyed my project for today and up next is the super talented Miranda!
