My Sheri Crafts #88

It's time for some red, white, and blue over at My Sheri Crafts.  That's right!  This week's theme is all about some patriotic fun!  Make a project using red, white, and blue showing off some patriotism

For my project, I made a star-shaped wreath.  Ok, it's not a wreath... we'll call it a door hanging welcome sign of some sort.  All the cuts are from the Don Juan Cricut cartridge and each of the blue and silver letters were heat embossed individually (yeah... time consuming and MESSY!).  The star is a metal frame I got from Michael's wrapped in some red tinsel with silver stars... alright, they're not really silver stars... they have 6 points!  I think the red tinsel garland is actually some left over Christmas item because the silver stars look more like weird looking snowflakes but shhhhh... no one can tell right?

Now let's see what you come up with!  Come join us at My Sheri Crafts with your patriotic projects
  • Star-shaped metal frame
  • Red tinsel garland
  • Nylon thread to connect the message to the frame
  • Heat embossing for the blue and silver lettering
  • Sure Cuts A Lot - white shadow lettering 
  • Design Studio
  • Cricut cartridge: Don Juan - all the lettering


  1. You're sooo funny, Raquel -- I LOVE your 'stars' and no one would ever think twice about them, as your eye is totally drawn to that AWESOME greeting! I bet is was difficult to do, but what an impact it has -- LOVE this & would be very proud to have it on my front door!!!

  2. Raquel, another awesome project from you! You made me laugh with the stars/snowflake bit, lol! I just LOVE the center with Happy 4th of July on it!!! Love the bow too!

  3. Beautiful door hanging! Love the tinsel and stars! Your greeting is fabulous! Wonderful job on the pretty display!

  4. Raquel,
    What a super idea. I love that you made something patriotic from the star. This is oh so cute. Now, I need to go back and take another look at the Don Juan cartridge.

  5. Great project! The silver stars (yes STARS!!) are a great touch! I really like that font, too. I don't have that cartridge, but I'm liking it!

  6. I bet the heat embossed letters make this even more amazing in person. :-) I love that you saw the potential of the tinsel and came up with this great star door hanger. Must...scraplift!
