Happy Belated Birthday, America! You look incredible for your 234 years…
OK, I confess, I made this candy last year… but I wanted to upload something and it was a finished craft…
I love red, white and blue… and what better than combining my love of those colors and my favorite thing to make- card candy!
The first piece is made with a Fiskars shape cutter (which inspired me to buy a Cricut), with an Autumn Leaves stamp, mini rhinestone, and crystal effects was applied over the blue-pencilled stars.
The USA was made with a square punch, alphabet stamps by Nicole Crafts, and a red star mini brad.
The hearts are plastic template shapes, a star button from Target’s $1 spot, and a dimensional fabric flower.
The square candy with the flowers was made with Autumn Leaves stamps, and the brad in the middle was heated and then I applied embossing powder to it. I just didn’t have a brad to match, so I made my own.
The three stars are by an unknown company. I used Stickles to glitter the white star, and attached them to a Whale Of A Punch shape. The blue star has a red rhinestone in the corner.
The last piece is Old Glory, stamp by the same unknown company as the stars. I colored it in with Crayola markers, and stamped it on textured cardstock for an antique look. I matted the flag on torn mulberry paper, and then on more textured cardstock. Button by Target.
