Freedom Felt Banner

Disclosure:  This post contains affiliate links for Sizzix.com

It’s Craft Lightning time again and this one is Patriotic Crafts!  This Freedom Felt Banner was super easy and took barely anytime to make!   And I love a cute seasonal banner!
Materials:


How to make it:

  1.  Using the die cutting machine, cutting pads and dies, cut out each of your pieces!  I cut seven bookmarks, seven badges and the letters to spell Freedom.  I used the rectangular badge because I thought it looked like a burst from a firework!
  2. Assemble your pieces so that you know where your want to glue them!  
  3. Glue your pieces and buttons to the bookmark.
  4. Let dry!
  5. Using twine and small clothespins, hang them up to create a patriotic felt banner! Easy Peasy!!!   Now I have a banner for Memorial Day as well as the 4th of July!  Hope you like this Craft Lightning project!   Be sure to click the photo below and check out other Patriotic Craft Lightning projects!

Initial Cork Boards

Sometimes cork boards can look boring and blah.  I decided to brighten them up!  These Initial Cork Boards were super easy and turned out super cool!

Complete
Materials:
4 Cork Tiles
Letter Stencils
Exact-o Knife
Pins to hold the letters in place
Spray Paint
Command Strips
cutting
Using my Sizzix Eclips2, I cut out the letters “K” and “B”.  Using pins, I placed my letters on the cork boards.  Then, I used an Exact-o Knife to cut the letters out.
painting
I chose two different colors of Krylon and spray painted the boards.  Krylon is by far my favorite brand of spray paint and these two colors are from the 2015 color palette!  
hot glue
Once my boards were dry, I used my hot glue gun to glue the letter boards to the solid ones.  Then I attached a Command Strip to the back and hung them on the wall.
