4th of July Americana

I just love Americana style home decor so when I saw the 3D star from the banner in SVG Cuts Made In The USA kit last year I knew I had to make it into a wall hanging.  I enlarged the pieces so the whole size would be around 12 x 12 and I used the print 2 cut feature on my sizzix eclips to print the verse from I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy, one of my favorite James Cagney movies.  I found this Americana digital paper by Tracie Stroud Designs,'s totally perfect for my project and I absolutely love it. 

Well after making the star I thought an american flag crate would look cute for my 4th of July cake pops, so I altered the crate from the Caramel Apple Pie Kit.  I shortened the height on the crate boards and added three more for the stripes, a total of 5 on each side.  The star piece is from the Main Street USA Mega Pack.  Then of course I needed a card so I took the flower card from the Iris Fold Cards kit and created this star card.

I must say I really love how they all turned out, love SVG Cuts files!!
