Patriotic Paper Craft

These paper crafts are perfect for your next patriotic event! Add them to food on your table. Toss them in a centerpiece or plant or enjoy them by themselves in a cute mason jar! I love using hot glue with paper because there is very little dry time.

To make the star bow fan:

Cut a 6-1/2″ circle (I used a cutter but my pyrex bowl lids work great for this!) Fold circle in half and accordion fold about every 1/4″ apart. Glue in center with hot glue. Hold until set. Glue on a red circle center (about 2″) and a cute button (I added blue and white). Glue skewer on back and let dry.

To make the red and white flower:

Cut 5 red strips 8-1/2″ x 1/2″ using a cutter. Cut 5 yellow strips the same size. Join strips at end and hot glue. Hot glue all strips together. Cut a white circle (about 3″) and blue circle (about 2″) and glue together. Add button if desired. Glue to skewer and let dry.

Display and enjoy!

  • I’m dropping by from the SITS Girls link party. I LOVE this idea — and especially how easy it looks to do. That’s my kind of craft.

    I’m trying to grow my own link party and I invite you to share this idea (and a couple of others) at Grandma Ideas Sharing Time at http://grandmaideas.com. I think my readers would really enjoy this idea too!!

    All the best,
    Nina

    (I’ve also pinned this on my 4th of July Pinterest board.)

  • These are fun. I can never get mine to look as perfect as yours do. I have some sort of a spacing problem. I love the way they turned out!
