Hey crafty crew! We're flying through June with Independence Day not too far away friends! Exciting! I'm picturing family gatherings, picnics, parades, food and a big bang celebration - which ties in to my Hometown USA project today 4.5" Decor Stars! So let's get our decorating all prepped and ready to go! AND there's a BONUS at the end of this blog post ;-)

Each star has three layers with the two top stars stitched onto white 2mm thick foam sheet. The foam helps with depth and dimension but also makes machine stitching a breeze. Have you stitched on foam yet? I love to do this.

This collection is so patriotic and fun! There's a coordinating textured cardstock pack so all the colors have been sorted for you, no need to stress on finding that perfect coordinating base! The papers I've used are (clockwise from top): Picnic Plaid, All Stars, Plaid to be an American, Hometown USA, Red, White & Blue.

These Decor Stars can be used on ALL your projects! Papercrafts, hamper baskets, home decorating, put on dowels for wands, added on your front door, your fridge with a magnet behind it or even as a gift bag topper!

I've put as much fun elements as I possibly could on each! Mini Icons, Sprinkles, This & That and even the odd silver balls from the Shakers! The stitching completes this project with that extra dimension. How cute are all the little kids all dressed up! So dang adorbs!
Remember to gather all the Doodlebug Design Team ideas and have fun creating, we promise you'll be happy you did!

And here's your BONUS! a video showcase :-)

Thank you crafty crew for flying by today! I hope I gave you a crafty hit of inspiration! Don't forget to tag us in on your socials - we're looking forward to seeing your next Doodlebug Design project! Until next time; doodle doo!
