As everyone knows, I am a bit craft-impaired. Thankfully, my best friend is incredibly blessed with that talent, and has agreed to guest post and share a wonderful patriotic craft project with everyone here! So thanks Sandy!
I hope you have a wonderful 4th of July no matter where you are in the world. We have fun with parades, picnics, fireworks…the whole sha-bang.
So in honor of the 4th, I made this cute rosette decoration for the holiday. You have probably seen those cute little triangle party banners for holidays and birthdays. I wanted something different from the normal banner that I usually hang for all the holidays.
I usually hang my banners on the fireplace, so instead of just one long banners, I went with 3 large rosettes. Here is an up close look…
The letters were cut from the Cricut Die Cutting Machine using Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. The letter size is at 3.75″ and I used Ranger’s Stickles glitter glue to give them some bling. You can kinda sorta see it on the “A”.
Now to make these rosettes all you need is paper, scissors, hot glue gun or strong adhesive and a something with a straight edge to score the pleats in the paper.
Here is a tutorial that I did a while back making a fancy rosette which is what the white is. The sizes for this project are larger. I went (2pcs.) 12×4 for the pattern paper, glued together to make the larger rosette. And 12×2 for the white ones.
