2 page Layout Featuring Doodlebug Design Patriotic Picnic

 

Crazy Huh? Its only Memorial Day weekend and I am already looking ahead to 4th of July.

 

I made this layout for a class that will be taught during our June Monthly Crop- if you are local the the PNW- Seattle area we meet monthly!

To give credit where credit is due- I was inspired by this layout from Queen and Co:

Tools Needed:

  • Paper Trimmer
  • Adhesive
  • Pop dots
  • Large square punch

Cut the Red, White and Blue into 4 1.5 inch stips. Then cut them down into 6 inch, 5 inch, 4 inch and 3 inch. You should have 2 of each size.

Here is a nifty trick I learned via google! To make the flag, use a square punch, mine is 1.5 inches, line up your paper and punch!

Decide how you want your pattern to go, set aside.

Pick your title and accent card. I used the America title and the cutie Uncle Sam. I then cut them out of their boxes so they would fit on my pages.

You will also need to cut 4 photo mats in 6.5 X 4.5 and 6.25 x 4.25, layer and set aside.

For the flags, I pop dotted the ends and used tape runner on the top.

I started in the middle with the longest and worked my way out. I didn’t put them on perfectly straight. I liked them a little messy 🙂

Pop dot and adhere your title to the top left.

Now for the twine! I used about 14 inches- tied a bow at one end using the good old bunny ears trick.

I used pop dots on the backs of the clothespins and adhesive on the bow end of the twine to get them to stay in place.

Repeat on the right side

Pop dot your Cutie Uncle Sam and place in the lower right corner.

I used a few of the Sprinkles Stars to accent my title and to finish off the photo mats  and ends of the twine.
