Patriotic Made in America Banner

     I am excited to be part of the Silhouette Challenge this month. This challenge theme is patriotic for each project. I am made in America, my family serves our country now, and  many generations before. I like this challenge because the Cameo is made by +Silhouette America too. 
   I used several Silhouette cut patterns, some with slight changes to make it my own,  for the American Banner
Red, Bunting, Folds, Silhouette


Bunting banner for 4th of July Patriotic Bunting, Silhouette Challenge, Red, Blue, Gray white
As you can see patience and a great adhesive is needed for this project.

Stars, Red, White and Blue, 4th of July
     This project was easy to cut out but, a little bit of work to  assemble. The cuts as you see above were to shape the bunting, the stars and bursts I cut out to add more depth to the design.
Mantle Decoration Banner 4th of July

   I used the Stars the centers and varied the sizes to make the streamers from the banner. I tied it together with red and white bakers twine.
4th of July Banner, Mantle
 I will be using it during my 4th of July festivities on the mantle at  our lake home. But for now the I had to use my mantle in the sun room.

Hi Karen, Oh my gosh! Your banner is so festive and wonderful. I love working with paper and your project is right up my alley. I can absolutely tell you spent some good time assembling all the pieces and WOW! What a great result.

Emily said...

Wow, I can see why it's some assembly required. Did you tear anything? Sometimes I get impatient, and then I end up ripping the paper.

TheKimSix Fix said...

Wow. It is amazing how it all comes together. I love the final result.. very dramatic.

I'm glad you were able to do the challenge this month! Paper projects are always my favorite and I love how you layered the paper for this project! "Some assembly required" made me laugh. Your banner is so festive! Love!

Karen Marie Kedzuch said...

Kelly,
Thank you for your sweet comments. To tell you the truth "Some Assembly required" made me laugh too. It really wasn't that hard once you sorted out the pieces. Then it was just a matter of step 1, 2 and so on.
SC Love is the best,
