Patriotic Kissing Ball

Patriotic Kissing Ball

For this kissing ball, I used various patriotic images and a red/white stripe printed on cardstock. Cut out twenty (20) 4in circles and folded an equilateral triangle into each circle. All circles were glued together into the ball. I added tea bag roses to each joint and added a burlap tassel to the bottom and a hanger to the top.

Instructions for making the Patriotic Kissing Ball
by: Margaret Diggs

I posted a mini tutorial on my blog at Thank you all for your kind comments, and to Vintage Image Craft for their generous use of the free Patriotic Images and hosting the Challenge.

Note from Scott: Margaret's tutorial is clear and well-photographed. With a few scrap materials and some vintage images, you can easily make one for yourself!

This is really cute, love the idea if the kissing ball with the patriotic images. I may have to borrow the idea for my 4th of July tree!
