I just wanted to take a minute to share this little patriotic shadow box with you. I made it with the 4th in mind but will also use it for my tag entry over at Tim's blog for July.
Since Simon Says Stamp and Show has "Anything Goes" this week I don't see any reason not to enter it there as well. Hopefully the third time will be the charm as Inspiration Emporium is having a big birthday celebration for America. Why not go for it?
I constructed the box myself out of some scrap pieces of chipboard using tape and glue. I only wanted it 1/2 inch deep so it didn't take much. When it was all put together I used the Postage Stamp Die and Grunge Board for the front and then painted it with Ranger's Crackle Paint. When dry, I used Fired Brick Distress Stain to color it. I covered it inside and out with some of Tim's Holiday Paper and attached the Postage Stamp Frame. Using some pop dots I attached Uncle Sam, a free downloard from Karen Burniston, on the inside of the box.
Add a little ribbon and a Rossett
A Tattered Banner & some bingo numbers and you're done-
Happy Birthday America
