I Love the USA by Donna
Hello everyone! It's Donna here and I am sharing a Patriotic project with you today featuring the Patriotic Variety Pack foiled paper pack. I love the rich colors of the red, blue and silver! There are several colors in the pack and you get 12 sheets that measure 6"x12". If you have not used these papers before, you should check them out. The papers are so easy to work with.
A closer look at the star
Here is how I made the box:
1. I started out with a star-shaped box, I cut a stripe from the blue star foiled paper from the Patriotic Variety Pack foiled paper pack and glued it onto the box.
Here is how the bottom of the box looks once I glued the stripe onto the box,
2. I traced the top of the box with the silver foiled paper from the Patriotic Variety Pack, I cut the star a little larger so I would have some hang over so the seams would be smooth, I also cut a strip for the top of the star too, then I glued everything to the box.
3. I cut the stars and flag from die cuts and added them to my box,
4. I stamped the rockets and colored them with Copics and added some glossy accents to give the rockets some dimension.
I loved how this project turned out, it's perfect to put some mints, money or even jewelry in it. I think I'm going to have to keep this for myself!
Please come back, all month we will be featuring projects made from the Patriotic Variety Foiled Paper Pack.
