Patriotic Mini Home Decor Project

Hello crafty friends!
Melinda here with you on this Terrific Tuesdie!  Today I am sharing a Patriotic Mini Home D├ęcor project. It features some sweet little cupcakes from one of the dies from the New CottageCutz.com Sweet Treats Release! 
Here is my project my fun project!
I started with a cute little distressed home metal shaped silhouette. I found it at the dollar store.

I created the inner sentiment on my computer. I printed it off on some plain white cardstock. I printed it off on four different sizes as I wasn't sure which size would look the best.


Once I picked the size I felt would work, I used the third largest pierce circle die and cut it out.


I then cut, colored and assembled some of the sweet little cupcakes from the Pedestal Stand W/ Cupcakes die. I cut all the pieces out in white cardstock. I only had to color in the red and blue pieces. Easy peasy!  I also added some clear stickles to the "stars" on the cupcakes and on some of the white frosting.  I used some red stickles on the berries to give them a little sparkle.

I used some foliage from the Christmas Floral and Lantern With Pine Boughs Dies. I cut them all out in white cardstock as well. I then colored in the little stems with the "holly" berries on them.

I also added a dot of some blue stickles to the centers of the stars on the image. The little bow I added on the chimney is also from the Lantern With Pine Boughs Die.

Here are a couple of closeup photos of the cute cupcakes and foliage. You can see them sitting on the cute base that is a part of the die as well.

I did mount the white pierced circle with the image onto the next size up pierced circle that I used to cut out some Kraft cardstock. I added some foam tape between them to give it all a little lift from the base.

Here it is on my dining room table. I decided I didn't quite like it here. Felt like it got lost in the shuffle....lol.

Here is where I decided to put it. It found a home on my table in my entrance. 

Here is the new sweet treats release.

The Dies I used to create this project:







I also used the Lantern With Pine Boughs Die which is a discontinued die. However both the Christmas Farmhouse Floral and Deer Floral Spray dies both have some great "Holly berry" type alternatives.
