Cute and simple ideas for patriotic decorations
that I found on Martha Stewart's Blog::
Martha used vellum, to make her Pom Poms out of.
I had construction paper handy and used a plastic paper cutter
board to make 1/8" strip cuts as she did.
Turned out really cute. Scrapbook paper stock would have been super
since it's colored on both sides but this workedgreat for letting my
lil' Bug assist with the safe slicing of the paper. :)
I have been on the look out for all sorts of useful tools for Haylee to do
different kinds of painting with also. On this same site, Martha uses a round
brush that she barely tips into the paint and it makes the most adorable
resemblence of a firework pattern. Gonna have to give that a try.
