This project is very meaningful to my husband and I am is also a wonderful way of saying thank you on 4th of July!
~Without further ado here is my project for today~
**But with a bit of explanation.**
I have been feeling really patriotic lately. Yes, it’s probably because the 4th of July is nearing, but it is also because my husband (Cal) just finished serving his last of eight years in the army. I have been trying to think of a way to “commemorate” his time in the military in a meaningful way. I came up with this re-vamp of a project I did a few months ago.
This project is a little way for me to say THANK YOU to him for giving up so much to serve the country.
**Okay, so on to the “how I did it” part**
So, I know I have definitely mentioned that adore all things having to do with encyclopedia paper, so my project definitely utilizes my beloved encyclopedia—the Atlas and Index version!
We punched out stars from all of the meaningful places Cal had been throughout his military career. It was such a special way for me to learn more about each training and “tour” overseas.
I sewed each star individually right down the middle because I knew I wanted to fold them up a bit when I was done. And then I sewed the vellum to the letter.
