We're back today with more July Main kit inspiration featuring the "I Heart Summer" collection by Simple Stories.

My Creative Scrapbook Design Team member Jodi Baune is sharing how she transformed a sticker from the kit into a fun dimensional embellishment.

Here's Jodi:

Hello! Manufactures are great about making so many fun matching elements to add to our projects I love to see how I can make those elements stretch, and what I can turn them into! I want to share with you how I took a banner sticker and made it into a fun flag for my layout!

I dug in my stash and found a toothpick for the “flagpole,” black paint, and a black pearl.

A fun tip…Using a Q-tip, I add baby powder to the back of the sticker so the adhesive is no longer sticky making it easier to work with the sticker.

I painted the toothpick black.

Once the paint has dried I apply a glue line to the back of the sticker and add my toothpick.

Flip over and add pearl to the top of the “pole!”

Here it is tucked into my layout!
