Create a Festive and Fun Fourth of July Banner

Summer is the perfect time to be outdoors, throw a BBQ party or to show off your patriotism with the Fourth of July!  Luckily, Joy Clair has a perfect stamp set when it comes to American Flag themes. In this quick and easy crafting project, I used their 4 x 6-inch Grungy Flag background stamp paired with Memento Luxe ink to create this amazing looking banner.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1 – 2 hours

Directions


Step 1

Tear cotton or linen material into 4” x 8” pieces. The number of pieces will depend on how long you would like your finished banner.


Step 2

Place a strip of fabric on a stamp positioner at the 1” mark. Put the stamp directly over the area to be stamped. Close the positioner to affix the stamp to the lid.


Step 3

Ink the star area with Memento Luxe in Danube Blue and the stripe area of the stamp with Memento Luxe in Love Letter.


Step 4

Close the positioner and press the inked stamp onto the material. I wanted a vintage feel to my banner so I stamped the image once. For brighter, solid colors, reposition the material, re-ink the image and stamp a second time. Stamp each additional panel in the same fashion.


Step 5

Iron each stamped piece of material to set the inks. Once you heat set Memento Luxe it is permanent on the fabric!


Step 6

Adhere each stamped flag to a length of string or ribbon. Hang it up outdoors and enjoy!
