********************************************************************* Now on to my shabby project! I chose to embellish this tin star, that can easily be used as wall decor, set on a shelf, or kept flat on a table! I found this piece at my local Dollar General store! With Memorial Day around the corner, July 4th this summer, and wanting a bit of a patriotic theme, I thought this fit the bill perfectly!
Wanting to spell WELCOME, I went to my trusty 95pt Times New Roman font, included in this 2" Round Monogram kit, that also includes 4 borders & other size fonts. It's located HERE in The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. (scroll down a bit on the page to locate)
I used my Spellbinders Stars 5 Nestabilities to cut several stars, crinkled them for that shabby detail and stacked together to create a star embellishment. The gorgeous silk ribbon is found HERE at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store (scroll down a tad to see all the beautiful silk ribbons available!) Star paper is found in October Afternoon's Report Card paper pad, the decorative red on banner is from PinkPaislee's 365 degrees paper pad, both found HERE at The Stamp Simply Store too! Check out our talented designer's shabby creations, you will not want to miss a single one! Remember to leave a comment here and on all the blogs to increase your chances of winning that yummo blog candy! Enjoy your day and thanks so much for stopping by!!!
