Patriotic Banners

I went to my LSS Scrapdoodles yesterday and picked up some of the yummy patriotic papers by We R Memory Keepers - the line is called "Old Glory." I think they are a bit nostalgiac looking. I thought they would be perfect for some of the 4th of July cuts off the A Child's Year cartridge. I used that cartridge and the Stand and Salute cartridge for all the cuts on these two banners. It's hard to tell, but I also misted each with Tattered Angels gold glimmer mist. I mounted recycled cardboard to the backs to give it a little more stability and connected everything with floral wire. A fun, patriotic project for the summer.

Father's Day Recycle

I had fun creating this project out of some recycled material. I used a juice bar box as the base and part of a Cricut cartridge plastic packaging to cover the window. The patterned paper is a great hunting print from Reminisce, if I remember correctly. The cuts are from my Camp Out cartridge, except for "Dad" which was cut with Beyond Birthdays. I inked the edges. The last step was to fill the box with treats. Hope he likes it!
