Today’s crafty inspiration is this red, white and blue altered canvas featuring fabric from Laura Kelly Designs and of course buttons! It’s an easy to create project for your home or for a gift.
All of the July 4th celebrations are fast approaching. So that means get out your Red, White and Blue, and get crafting.
I started with and 8×8 canvas that I covered in cardstock and patterned paper. Tip: Make sure you use a strong adhesive that you trust for altered projects to ensure your paper will stay attached to your canvas.
Other Products Used:
- General Fabrics designed by Laura Kelly available at Joann Stores
- Patriotic Buttons by Buttons Galore & More
- Patterned paper by Imaginisce, I (Heart) Dogs Collection
- Phoomph for fabric by Coats and Clark
Make sure to cover the sides of your altered canvas as well. I like to cover all surfaces that can be seen with patterned paper, ribbon or fabric.
An altered canvas makes a great gift or display for your own home. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope your 4th of July celebration is full of red, white and blue craftiness. A celebration to remember!
