DIY festive art tutorial:: recycled. repurposed.

So...many of you asked HOW I did these little star/flowers for my festive 4th of July vingette.
 ask & you shall recieve....


Supplies:
toilet paper/paper towel/wrapping paper rolls
scissors
bone folder
hot glue/glue gun
printed hybrid art from House of 3 (Four printable sticker kit, July No. 4 digital kit, July No. 4 Printable kit.)




Steps:
1. Take the paper rolls & cut them into 5 or 6 sections, depending on how thin you want your art. Flatten them out as shown in #2.
2. Hot glue them together at the center. Hold together 'til cool.
3. Cut out printed House of 3 art & hot glue in center.


Hang them around for fun...parties, decorations, whatever....
now...show me YOUR 4th of July decorations!
