For this project I went to Michaels and bought a package of thin precut blocks. The packge is only $2 and comes with circles, squares and rectangles. I painted them all with dark blue paint and then began decorating. The words and letters are cut from Storybook. The 4 inch squares and 4 inch circles were cut from George. Then I made three rosettes. I cut 2- 2 x 12 inch strips, punched the edges, scored using the punch as a guide, and hot glued together. On the top I added the 3 D star from Stand and Salute. I added some embellishments and ribbon. The backs are also covered with paper. My husband really liked it and we placed it on the "fireman altar" as I call his part of the mantle with all his fireman chotskies. I am entering this is the Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge God Bless America.
