Historic Fourth of July Pennant Banner.

It's almost July, so of course, I'm in the mood to make banners!!
I started by cutting American history pictures from a coffee table Americana  book I'd was ready to get rid of. 
I mounted them on card stock and trimmed them festively. 
Adding old book paper lollies with stick on letters and tiny flags ... 
When I got home I painted the letters and used glittered fingernail polish to finish them off. 

Here it is hung in my dining room window!!  Happy fourth everyone. 


  1. Hello Paula! It was so nice to meet you at Jann;s party. Your blog is amazing. You have inspired me. Have a very lovely weekend. Hugs, Jo

    1. I loved meeting you too! Was Jann's party the best ever!!! So fun perusing your blog!

  2. So cute Paula! Love the idea of using the b&w photos from the book. And the lollies and glitter are fun, fun, fun! Thanks for coming to the party!!

    1. Jann, thanks so much for your kind words! One of my daughters who isn't a big pennant banner girl said she loved this one because of the old photos!

      Thanks for the lovely party. Such nice girls, great food and one of the loveliest table settings I've ever seen. Leaving early was a bit torturous. Thanks so much for including me!!
