Stars N Stripes Gone Wild

When a dear reader requested the Stars N Stripes Candy Color papers, I sat down to compile them all (27 free printable papers, including the original 1890 Vintage Style Papers!!) and in the process some ideas came to mind what one could do with these, other than use them as card backgrounds and for wrapping or journaling. So I and the girls have had a festive day crafting with them, me on the puter and the girls with scissors and twine:

Or use the plain flag or the flag with the frame but no letters to add your own wording or designs (all 7 flags are included in the pdf-file):

This garland should be well suited for a 4th of July Vintage Style Party 🙂

Next up is bunting with the candy colors, suited for any kind of summer party:

    1. You are very welcome 😀 Thanks for stopping by 🙂

      I hope all the links are working now for downloads, I tested and found a couple that were copy-pasted incorrectly…:-P

  1. My cousin’s son is joining the Navy……….his picture in the stars and stripes will be cute as a hanging banner. Something for his mama to save. LOL It’s perfect, thank you.

    1. Aww, that sounds fabulous 🙂 If you have several pictures of him, you could even do different pictures for the banner, and make every second a blank flag? I’d love to see pictures if you whip one up 🙂 xoxoxo

      PS: I can send you the png file of the flag with the oval background of the frame removed, if you want to make these digitally and then print?
