Little Miss Patriot

Happy Sunday!
It was a rainy afternoon and all of the chores were done, so I 
sat down to create this cute 'lil patriotic ornament/tag/sign just in 
time for Independence Day!  Would be perfect hanging on a lighted tree, 
a cabinet knob or door :)





In my stash are a bunchhhh of these scalloped acrylic pages that were designed
for mini albums. I cut a piece of chipboard to measure slightly smaller than the
acrylic piece and then dressed (both sides) with patterned papers from Echo Park Paper.
The edges were distressed with a walnut ink and then attached it to the back with
 Sookwang adhesive tape (I placed the tape strategically so it would be
hidden by the piece on front of the acrylic).

For the front, I used a die-cut chipboard piece covered in this cute patriotic plaid print.
The little retro girl (I found by searching "free patriotic clip art) was printed onto
heavy cardstock, trimmed out and added with foam tape, along with the blue
glitter die cuts.  

I made up a strand of crepe paper fringe  and adhered it to the bottom of 
the chipboard frame, along with a piece of paper straw.
Buttons were tied with jute and added to the top of the fringe.

A boutique style bow was added to the side with a craft tag boasting USA
attached to the center of it.  Ribbon was inserted through the top holes to
create the hanger for this little cutie!

That's all for tonight!  Thanks for coming by!
