I loved using the Rhinestones and although I wanted to put them on Fabric I decided to use them on a Paper Craft.

Seeing as I’m a little obsessed with banners (if you don’t believe me you can check out my Valentines, Easter, St. Patrick’s Day and Christmas ones), I thought it only fitting to make a Fourth of July Banner as well.

Here is how it turned out:

It was super easy and fun to do!!

DIRECTIONS:

Fourth of July Banner. Easy and cute - I'm making this! Made with a silhouette machine, this makes for great decor!

1. Begin by cutting out your bunting shape. I went with a pennant and added the star in the middle. I did 5 red and 4 turquoise.

2. From there I cut out my Rhinestone shape. I went with the star to go around the punched star in the banner. Be sure to cut it with the green side facing up. From there you will peel off the Rhinestone paper, doing it pretty quickly or some of the circles may stay and you will have to peel them off manually. Add that piece to your backing board (the thick white cardstock). From there you will pour out your rhinestones and using your Rhinestone Positioning Brush, you will go in a circular motion pushing the rhinestones into place, making sure the rhinestones are right side up. You may have to help a few in… I did. 🙂

3. From there you will add your rhinestone adhesive tape on top. Press down firmly to make sure all your rhinestones stick. Peel that off and add to whatever you are putting the jewels on. I put mine on my paper. Then I placed a piece of scrap fabric over top and ironed on Medium Heat for about 45 seconds. I peeled off the adhesive and Voila – the rhinestones stuck on like magic!!!

They were the perfect touch for my paper banner! I only added the rhinestones to my blue pieces.

4. From there I used the CAMEO to cut out 1.5 inch circles from scrapbook paper. I made little poms to go in between the pennants on my banner. After cutting out the circles, I folded them in half and hot glued two of them together. I hot glued the third piece but left it open. From there I hot glued all over and stuck it to my twine which is where the pennants were already on. I did this making sure the spacing was right and after all my pennants were already on the twine.

5. The paper poms helped with the spacing and gave it a little 3-D effect.

    Lil' Luna

    Bahaha – don’t know about that. 😉

Jill @ J♥

Kristyn, Cute banner! I love your frames! You think the color is too dark? I think it looks perfect! But I totally understand if you have a picture in your mind of what you want something to look like and then it comes out a little different…it must be fixed! I’m totally the same way, but for the record the frames are darling! Did you do the silhouettes yourself? They are too cute! Have a super day! Smiles, Jill

    Lil' Luna

    Thanks for the sweet words, Jill!! I think they are just one or two shades too dark… the rest of the red in my family room is a little brighter, so we’ll see if I can get the energy to re-do them, ha!! Hope you have a great week, my friend! XO

so cute, I could put shiny stuff on anything, so it is probably a good thing I don’t have this.

    Lil' Luna

    LOL!! Everything looks a little better with a little bling, huh?
