Our Stars and Stripes – may our flag continue to fly over our country to demonstrate to the world that we are a nation based on liberty and equality - our colors don't run!!

Today I am sharing with you a 4th of July Celebration Brooch that I made using a SU punch and some double-sided flag paper.  You will also see some Stickles and a really neat center for the flower which makes the project complete.


This is a picture of the back of the brooch - a jeweler's pin.  This can be worn on a shirt or jacket or pinned on a purse, lampshade, etc - use your imagination!!



Extra Scraps - This is a project I posted yesterday from which I used the same flag paper that I used for the brooch so you can see I'm always looking for ways to use up scraps.


This little dynamite duo is made from paper patterns - Independence Day and I Love NY - collections from Paper Piecings by Nikki.  I fussy cut them and added glitz plus the celebrate stamp I had from Close to My Heart.

I hope you are enjoying the hop - become a follower and/or drop me a comment to be in the running for Lisa's big blog candy...........cyberhugs..........Mama LoveBug.

That's a great idea for the brooch ... I could see parade attendees or celebrants wearing it with pride. And your Nikki bears are adorable!
