Clear Scraps--Mini Shaker American Flag--Star Spangled LO

Hello all!  Laura here with you today to share a fun and easy idea for a scrapbook LO for your upcoming 4th of July holiday pictures!

Clear_Scraps_Mini Shaker Flag_Star Spangled LO(2) 

This LO is perfect for pictures of fireworks, or a parade or any celebration!  It started with the Clear Scraps Mini Shaker American Flag

Clear_Scraps_American Flag Mini Shaker

The top frame was painted with red acrylic paint.  While that dried, I traced the solid back piece onto a star patterned paper, cut it out, and then glued to the back piece.  The other frame pieces were glued down, and some silver and blue beads were added before the acrylic layer was glued down.  Remember to remove the protective plastic layer from BOTH sides of the acrylic!  It keeps your acrylic nice and pristine before you add it, but it will look "cloudy" if you don't remember to remove it!

It was painted black giving it a sort of silhouette or shadow effect which looks cool against the flag.  You could easily add some glitter glue as well, I liked the subtle look this gave.  The scrapbook page was very simple, the Star Spangled Banner patterned paper sheet, the navy & white swiss dot, and a few border pieces.  A journal card and a couple of mats and stickers and then adding the completed flag shaker in the corner, make this scrapbook page ready to go, for those 4th of July pictures!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you got a little inspiration for your 4th of July/Patriotic celebration pictures!  Stop back soon for more inspiration and remember there are lots of Clear Scraps Mini Shakers for all sorts of themes!  You can find them all HERE.
