Challenge 67 Out of a Hat

Happy 4th of July to all of my friends in the US.

Hello Everyone. Another week has flown by and it is time for this week's challenge at Out of a Hat. We have a new designer there for July so do come and meet her.

This week the theme is Stars and Stripes




I found a fairly large, plastic plant pot in the shed. Designed some paper from the American Flag image and printed it onto a canvas paper. Then I cover the plant pot with it. Made some big matching stars and added the red, white and blue ribbon top and bottom. It is just right to hold my everyday brushes and largest scissors.What a splash of colour it adds to the shelf.

Hope you will pop and see what Sandra, Janet and Valerie have made and also join in with your own take on the theme if you have time.



Love Chrissie x
