Rewind: 4th of July Banner


I just got back from a very fun trip to Boston and Cape Cod, so I have no new projects to share with you.  While I get myself organized and back to crafting, I thought it would be fun to share some 4th of July projects I've done in the past.  I made this banner for my little niece's playhouse 2 years ago. It's still one of my favorite projects!



The pennants are cut at 6" from the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge. To make the 4" rosettes, I followed this great video by Tammy Skinner. On top of each rosette, I adhered a 6" circle from Cricut's Mini Monograms. This "freedom" cut is from Cricut's Graphically Speaking.


For this pennant, I cut a 3 1/4" firecracker from Cricut's Sweet Treats.


To see the technique I used to stamp this 4 1/2" star from Cricut's A Child's Year, visit this post.



I love this cut from A Child's Year. It is cut at 4".



Finally, here is another cut, at 3 1/2", from Graphically Speaking. I dressed it up with some white stitching and a stamp from My Creative Time's My Little Firecracker stamp set.
