I have some fabric that has flags on it - I don't know why I have it or even where it came from, but I have it. lol Anyway, I cut the fabric into pieces to fit around the cardboard tube at the center of toilet paper rolls. After it had dried (actually it was weeks after it had dried) I mod podged it onto the tubes leaving a little room at the bottom to tuck the fabric up inside the tube and a lot of room at the top. I put a rubber band at the top to hold it all close together and then cut the fabric into thin little strips.
I thought they came out cute. I made three of them and put them on the red pedestal plate that I had made along with some other things.
There are three wooden stars stacked at the back of the plate. One each of red, white, and blue, the firecrackers, and a couple of pictures of very important soldiers.
The picture in the foreground is my Grandfather. The picture in the back is my Great-Grandfather and was taken in Paris, France during the war. I thought this would be a great time to set them out. Although, these aren't the originals, just scanned copies that I reprinted. I wouldn't want the originals to get destroyed. :0)
