DIY Patriotic Denim Banner
This is a sponsored post on behalf of American Crafts.
The fourth of July is only a week away, how did that happen? This year seems to be flying by! Before you know it we’ll be busting out the Halloween projects and then Christmas. I know I’m getting a little ahead of myself. But I feel like this summer is just slipping away, with nowhere near enough time to get everything done. I did however recently spend a day putting up patriotic décor inside and on our porch. First up on my Fourth of July display was to make a patriotic banner using my Heidi Swapp Minc foil applicator.
This tool is the bomb. Enough said. But seriously, it’s been fun trying to find new ways to use it. It works for a lot more than scrapbooking, especially in the midst of the foil trend. So when I thought of the fourth of July I knew the shiny, bright foil would be perfect for a small patriotic table display. The banner was made with denim pennants from Michaels, patriotic stickers, and red foil.

Heidi Swapp Minc Foil Applicator
Minc 12×12 paper pack
Step one: Use your cutting machine to cut letters from the Heidi Swapp Minc 12×12 paper pad.
Step two: Place your letters on the clear sleeve facing up. Place foil over the letters and run through machine on setting 3.
Step three: Peel off foil and glue letters onto your denim banner. I like to use the Elmers x-treme glue sticks. I’ve probably talked about them a million times over the years but I’m always really impressed with how strong the glue is.
In addition to the letters I used a pack of patriotic stickers from Michaels to add American flags and silver stars on the ends.
