I love Summer decorating especially for the 4th of July. July also reminds me of carnivals, sno-cones, fireworks, kiddie rides, and game booths. When I saw these tickets at the dollar store I knew I wanted to use them in my July decorating and make a tickets American flag.
I used an 8″x10″ frame because that’s what I had. If I were going to buy one I’d probably get a bigger one for bigger impact. I cut a piece of white cardstock to 8″x10″ to fit inside the frame. Then I used it as a guide for my tickets. I layed out my flag design then adhered it to the cardstock with double sided tape.
Once it was complete I placed it in the white frame. And there you have it.
I love how it turned out. It was just what I had in mind. I still have a ton of tickets so I need to think of another fun project to use them on.
Have you started crafting or decorating for the 4th of July?
