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.
Time: 1 – 2 hours
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.
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.
Ink the star area with Memento Luxe in Danube Blue and the stripe area of the stamp with Memento Luxe in Love Letter.
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.
Iron each stamped piece of material to set the inks. Once you heat set Memento Luxe it is permanent on the fabric!
Adhere each stamped flag to a length of string or ribbon. Hang it up outdoors and enjoy!
