Random Ramblings: USA PATRIOTIC WAND

Friday, July 10, 2015


The other day I was over in the Clear Scraps Creating Made Easy Kit Club blog with this project. 
When I was creating my pie banner I had a great idea to make my daughter a fun little patriotic "magic" wand.  She loves things like this and was so excited when I told her it was for her.  
I started with another straw I had on hand and used some navy blue star paper from the kid to make a rosette.  I cut the paper into 2 strips that were 2 x 12 inches. I used my scoring pad to make score lines every half of an inch.  I accordion folded each strip and then hot glued them together on both ends.  To form a circle.  I then smooshed it together and held it while I filled the center with hot glue.  I held it in place for a little until the hot glue started to cool.  
I then took a large scalloped circle punch I had and cut a piece from some star vellum I had on hand.  I hot glued that to the top of the rosette.  I then glued on the clear scraps star on top of that.  
I took some silver thick stickers and added them to the clear star, along with some star stickers, sequins and rhinestones.  I cut a little strip that said stars and strips and attached it under one of the stars.  

For the final touches to her wand, I took some ribbons I had on hand and tied them to the straw right under the rosette.  I cut them at different lengths just for some added fun.  

Now she can be a patriotic princess any time of the year.  
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my project.
