God Bless the USA Door Hang

Hello the Bug Bytes readers!  This is Melody from A Splash Here and There blog.  Thanks Pam and her lovely readers for having me today.  I'm sharing a door hang I created in honor of the upcoming Fourth of July holiday. 

I used the Silhouette Studio to plan the pieces to this project, and all pieces were cut using the Cameo.  The scalloped circle with the stars, the Statue of Liberty silhouette, and the "USA" were images purchased through the Silhouette Store.  The rosette came from a rosette SVG set I purchased through Lettering Delights a while back.  I used the Cooper Black and the Creampuff fonts for the words "God Bless the."

Here are some of the pieces after they have been cut.  I preassembled part of the rosette.  I ended up using a total of 12 rosettes pieces (cut in 2  12x12 white cardstocks).

After attaching all 12 rosette cuts together, I laid it out around a 12 inch cardboard cake platter, shiny side down.  I then marked four spots where I'll need to glue the rosette down first.  I used a glue gun for this project for stability. 

This is how the rosette should look like after glueing down on the four marked spots.

Then all I had to do was "squish" in the rosette to form a circle, working one corner at a time.  I made sure to put a ribbon (I attached mine with a heavy duty stapler becuse the cake platter was very thick) before I closed down all the corners since I was going to hang this.

Mine was not a perfect circle as you can tell from the above picture, but the front did cover it up pretty well.

I used red Craftworks Card Candis and faux stiched with a white gel to embellish the scalloped circle.  I also did faux stitching on the letters USA.  Most of the pieces were also foam mounted for added depth. 

Thanks for allowing me to share my project with you today.  Have a wonderful 4th of July!
