Flag Project

Woo-Hoo!  I finally finished my flag project.  I got inspiration from a couple of fab blogs, including Sarah @ Thrifty Decor Chick (her blog is rockin’), which gave me courage to try my own version.  I had a friend give me a set of wood slat blinds, but there was no hardware, so he figured I’d use them for a craft…he was right!  I used my hand saw and miter box to cut the slats to size.  Instead of painting them, I covered them with scrapbook paper.  I had a wood  Christmas star ornament, that originally had “noel” across the front, but I tore that off, so I could use the star on my flag. I glued the slats to a scrap piece of wood, for stability. Then, to finish it off, I wanted to add some words that I associate with Independence Day…I used my little individual stamp set (from Craft Warehouse), and stamped “Liberty”, “Sacrifice”, “Freedom”, and “One Nation Under God”.  Those words, to me, signify what this holiday is all about.
