Star Spangled Wreath
I began with a 10 inch white paper wreath I cut on my Cricut. The inside dimensions were 7 inches. All of the stars are the same size- 3 inches (Cricut Craft Room Basic Shapes). There are 10 craft colored stars and 6 each of the blue, red and off white.
I distressed all of the edges with Desert Sand dye ink. For the blue stars, I ran them through the Cuttlebug using CTMH's dot embossing folder. For the red stars, I stamped a background using CTMH's Baroque Borders (S1208): an old stamp of the month set with cranberry ink. The off white stars are stamped with a type font background stamp I have using black ink.
The cute flag is an old CTMH rubber stamp that I dug out of my daughter's stash. I love that stamp. I stamped it twice and cut out part of the second image to layer and give it dimension and used 3D foam tape to assemble.
I adhered EVERYTHING using CTMH's Bonding Glue Pen and Liquid Glass.
I hope you enjoy it! If you would like to join me on June 20th and make one of your own, the cost is $10 for this project. Just let me know :). I'd love to help you make your own!
Thanks for stopping by :) -Dari
