This weekend has been a busy one… so much going on with the boys (baseball,baseball,baseball) at church (huge rummage sale & church picnic today) and work (library & rush orders yesterday) but today, the official day of rest, I decided to spend the latter half doing some things that are restful to me. Like crafting for fun.
And here is what I came up with – my version of the American flag, paper style…
It still needs a good coat of Modge Podge to be officially finished, but I couldn’t wait to take a few picture of it, so that step will have to wait till later.
I am always so inspired by all the cool quilting projects that people out in blogland are doing (especially Manda @ Tree Fall,) that I wanted to try something similar, but with paper instead of fabric.
I used leftover paper scraps, an old cabinet door I found on the side of the road, a star punch and a glue stick. My paper strips aren’t all exactly perfect and straight, but I decided that was part of what is fun about crafting for me – I don’t care if they are all straight or not!
And the best part? No seam ripping or needle threading!
Next up: a companion Union Jack in the same colors!
