Patriotic Wall Hanging!

Today is Thursday, which around these bloggin' woods means Digi Stamp Thursday! Lindsay just added this adorable bunting digi stamp in her shop and as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to make something for our upcoming annual 4th of July Party. This was so easy and inexpensive to make, I may make alot of them to use as decorations to hang outside for the party and then give one to everyone when they leave!

In addition, to this new stamp, Lindsay has put a ton of them in the shop, HERE. They are all wonderful! And if you visit all the DT Members listed below, you just might find a link for a FREE Digi Stamp on one of their blogs! *hint* *hint*

This week Lindsay wanted us to make something using a recycled product. So I made the star's base out of cardboard which I painted white. I then added some Melissa Frances dp, the bunting digi stamp, which I colored in with Copics, buttons and the words were printed out of MS Word. For the hanger, I just wrapped some 20 gauge wire around a pencil and hot glued it to the back, and then added the ribbon and chipboard star. See, told you it was cheap and easy!! ;)

And don't forget to visit the Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Digi Stamp Store for some great digi stamps for only a buck!!
