4th of July Wall Hanging

Good Morning everyone. I finished a project I had started yesterday.

My mom always has these big parties for all the holidays. It seems it's the only time all of us can get together at the same time with everyone's busy schedules these days. I decided to make her a wall hanging for the party.

I won this months June Grab Bag at the VDBC Store. I used one of the files from the grab bag - July Fireworks Mesh by RSMobleys Designs, File RM00150. Also, I used Sharon's Card Front Tags and More RM00094 for the center mats.

The navy 4th of July mat is cut at 5 inches and re-sized the rest of the mats accordingly. The white lattice is cut at almost 3 3/4 wide. The mats for the white paper flower are cut slightly over 3 1/2 wide. The elements on the paper flower are from K&CoMPANY called Americana, I applied Glossy Accents to the center star. I also applied Pop Dots on the center mats. 

For the ribbon I chose 4 different ones for variety, Lace, Plain White, Red and a Star Patterned. I cut 2 of each and arranged them how I wanted and then stapled them together. I knew glue was not going to hold them and I was afraid the hot glue would be to bulky in the back. I then used Scotch Liquid Fast dry to adhere them to the back of the mats.

I applied some Stickles to the stars on the navy mat and along the edges of the white card stock.

I love the look of the Making Memories Bravissimo Ribbons, and this was my attempt at trying to make one. I think I did ok, LOL

Thank you for looking,
