4th of July bears hop

    I made a double sided banner for the 4th of July using Lisa's files 4th of July, Happy Birthday America, and Bear #2. you can find all the files under Holidays in her store at Scrapping with Lisa here.

                                                      1st side of banner.

                                                 Closeup of the 1st side of banner.

                                                         2nd side of banner.

                                         Closeup of this side of the 2nd side of banner.

                                   Closeup of the other part of the 2nd side of the banner.

    I used Cricut cartridge Birthday Bash to cut out the banner. It can be found on the keypad row 4 button 8 font key and the font shift key for the shadow. I cut it at 5.32". I then held the shadow piece up to the blue and cut out a bigger piece to give me 3 layers for the banner.

    Here are items I used to decorate the images.I paper pieced most of the bears. Some are png, but  most are pdf. I decorated all of the images. I used Pom Poms by Darice as some of the noses. Eyes are wiggle eyes by Creatology. Stardust clear Gelly Roll Pen for glitter highlights. Star Confetti by Celebrate It from (Michales)- fireworks image. 3 Mini star brads on the watermelon bear's hat by Recollections. Popdots were used to pop up parts of the bears to give them a 3D effect. ATG runner, Glue Dots and Zig 2 way glue pen were used as adhesives. The papers are Georgia Pacific-white, Recollections- dark blue and floral print. Target- 4th of July prints. The Ribbon is by Offray.

   I hope you enjoyed my banner to decorate our home for the 4th of July. Have a lovely day. Edwina
