Proud To Be An American




Americana Sentiment Set

Americana Sentiment Set

What an awesome kit!  The Americana Sentiment Kit has something for everyone’s taste.  And also an option to build you own tag.  That is exactly what I did.  I took the colored tag in the kit and made it my own by adding a sentiment and some stars with lots of stickles glitter glue.  And I took a piece of patriotic paper from my stash and created a rosette.  Two stars cover the center of the rosette.  The rosette is 2-1/4” in diameter.  I used a 12” long by 1-1/4” wide piece of paper and scored it every 1/4 inch.  Folded like a fan (accordion style) and glued the edges together.  The hot glue gun is your friend when gluing the center of the rosette to a round disk of paper to hold it altogether. The tag is 5-1/4” long and 3” wide.  With the rosette attached the tag is 6” long.  Front of tag printed on Neenah Classic Solar White Paper and the back is lined with Neenah Classic Linen Red Pepper.  The stars were cut from a die called Die-namic Stack Star.   Papers used to make the tag:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White and Neenah Classic Linen Red Pepper

You cannot go wrong with the American Sentiment Kit for all your patriotic projects.  Everything you need in one small package.  Plus you may be interested in the Americana Digi Paper Pack too.
