Three cheers for the Red, White & Blue! Button Farm Club is here to help you get ready for the summer holidays with a fabulous Patriotic Celebration Kit. If you love vintage Americana with a fresh, fun twist, then this loaded kit designed by Kathy Clement exclusively for Button Farm Club has your name on it.
Carta Bella’s charming “God Bless America” collection kit inspired this amazing array of summer home decor projects. The 6” x 9” x 3” handmade mini album base adorned with festive rosettes, playful pinwheels, and the most adorable vintage fire truck will look great as part of your summer home decoration.
Open the album cover to find a pocket and flap page and a handsome waterfall folio with loads of room for capturing family summer fun. A roomy box pocket holds a wonderful banner for you to add to your patriotic home display! When the holidays are over, simply tuck it back into the pocket to keep it safe until next year.
Because the more the merrier, we’ve invited a 4” x 4” exploding box album to the party! This is not only pretty to display, but it’s a functional photo storage item as well. Remove the lid to reveal a series of flips, flaps, pockets, and tags and a wonderful pop-up display.
Wondering what to do with your paper scraps? Follow Kathy’s bonus tutorial and learn how to turn those scraps into handsome cards and clever little tags.
So pull up a rocking chair, grab a glass of lemonade and get ready to enjoy the 4th of July in fashion.
Everything you need to make the items seen here comes in your kit. Just add basic crafting supplies like adhesives and tools like scissors, paper trimmers, and a scoreboard. (If you decide to make the bonus cards, you will need to add 2 sheets of 8 ½” x 11” cream cardstock to the kit supplies. )
