Although I created the designs on this page for scrapbookers, these patriotic papers and scrapbook embellishments have many uses beyond just scrapbooking. The papers would also be great as backgrounds for handmade cards -- especially to send to someone serving in the U.S. military in Iraq. (Maybe by the time you read this there won't be any more Army, Navy, Air Force or Marine military personnel in Iraq. As of today [June 4, 2009], however, there are.) The papers can also be used as wrapping paper for small gifts; to incorporate into Flag Day, Memorial Day Veterans Day or Fourth of July crafts; or even as backgrounds for a web site or blog.

Fun patriotic ideas for 4th of July or Memorial Day

Patriotic cutlery bundles

I just saw a cute idea on Pinterest: Someone took scrapbook paper and cut it into equal-sized strips to wrap around plastic forks, knives, and spoons for their 4th of July BBQ. They also wrapped a piece of paper around a metal coffee can to hold the patriotic bundles. Very cute! You could also put the cutlery bundles in a glass Mason jar, so people can see through to all the red, white and blue. Some of the papers have striped designs, so you don't need to use a cutting board; you can cut them with scissors.

Patriotic pinwheels

These papers would make great patriotic pinwheels. Just do a web search for the term "pinwheel pattern" and you'll find plenty of free pinwheel template downloads in different shapes. Then, you can overlay one on these papers to cut them to the right sizes and construct them.

Have Some Free Time to Give to a U.S. Soldier?

Many of the papers on this page would be perfect for making handmade cards to send to a soldier in Iraq. If you'd like to do that but don't know anyone stationed in Iraq (and I hope you don't), check out AnySoldier.com. They provide addresses for soldiers in the armed forces who have requested to be sent mail, because it lessens the loneliness of being so far from home. And you don't have to make a handmade card to participate. Your taking the time to share is what matters; not the form that sharing takes.
