I made this project for the Taylored Expressions May release using the new American Flag Cutting Plate, the new Star Stacklets, and one of the new patriotic stamps called Patriotic Prose - Brave. Two different flags were cut out with real red and Americana patterned paper. The blue corner piece was adhered over the red diecut and it was backed with a piece of Choice Snow White card stock. All three pieces were distressed and inked with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and adhered together to form the flag. It was then adhered to the burlap background and framed (frame from Taylored Expressions).
The sentiment stamp called Patriotic Prose - Brave, which comes in one piece, was cut up into individual words and stamped on the frame with Timber Brown Stazon ink. (Don't use regular die ink because it will bleed...I speak from experience...LOL!!)
Star Stacklets were used to cut out all the stars from burlap, Americana 6x6 paper pad, and Kraft in Color 6x6 paper pad....they were all stacked and adhered with foam tape and glue dots. The corrugated cardboard button, buttons, and twine finish it off. TFL!!
