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.

Display and enjoy!
