God Bless the USA on Blocks -Home Decor

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.
