Stars and Stripes

Hi, Friends!

I wanted to do a Fourth of July craft and saw something similar to this. I wondered if I could make it two-sided!! I’m really happy with the way it turned out! I hope you are too!

Steve cussed when I mentioned glitter, but I figured out a way that it didn’t cause much mess. I carefully put some glitter in a small ziplock baggie. I painted the star white and while the paint was still wet, I gently pressed each side into the pile of glitter in the baggie. Then, I tapped it off while still in the baggie. After it dried completely, I painted over the glitter with glue. The glitter isn’t coming off!!!

I love the fact that this is two-sided because it looks good in a window from the outside and the inside! Also, the striped side is general enough that you can show your patriotism all year long!

I do have supplies to make more of these! If you would like to come and make one just let me know! I am doing small (1-3 people) classes and can work it around your schedule! The class is $20 and I supply everything! If you don’t live close enough to come and do one for yourself, or you just want me to do it for you – the cost is $25. (papers may vary)

 

Thanks!

Patriotic Flag Set

Hi Everyone!
I know it has been a very long time since I have blogged. Those of you that know me, know that I have been having some health issues that have not resolved. I am dealing with it a little better; and on occasion, I am doing some crafting. I can’t tell you that I am going to be able to post every week, but I’m going to try to post some! So, here goes!

I wanted something patriotic to put in my front windows and these flags were just the thing! They are simple and classic! I made two different sets; the red and blue are just slightly different colors. They stand just the right height at 12.25″. These will look great set together on a shelf or table, or they look great spread throughout your room! You can use them just for July or leave them up all year round to show your patriotism! We have 5 sets in each color for sale, the cost is $15.00.

Use as a window display!

Thanks for reading!
