When the middle of May hit, I pulled out my patriotic decorations. These stay out until a little bit after the Fourth of July. I have always loved Americana themed decor. And of course I have a lot of handmade decor. Today I am sharing with you a banner I made using all sorts of Stampin' Up! goodies!
The pinwheels come from a Paper Pumpkin kit from last summer. Did you know, if you sign up now you can get the first two months of Paper Pumpkin for 50% off? I love these kits. Instead of using the pinwheels to attach to treat bags, I used them for this banner and a wreath as well. This Build a Banner kit is retiring, but (spoiler alert) a new fabulous one will be in the next catalog. I used the masks for the background of each banner in Real Red, Night of Navy and Smoky Slate. I then used the star framelits and the stenciled "America" on them. I actually used versa mark and embossed on the Real Red and NIght of Navy stars in white and Smoky Slate.
Thanks so much for looking at my project. I will be sharing more patriotic projects as the summer comes. Did you see all the other patriotic themed projects over at SSI?
