When I think of July, I think of Uncle Sam, patriotism, and sparklers. I had this printout of an Uncle Sam puppet that was just too all-American to pass up.
So I got to work cutting him out. And then came the embossing - you can really see the difference that made.
And glittering....and even flocking on his hair & beard which is hard to tell but he is fuzzy!
Once that's all done, we put him all together!
He's got Wow! red embossing on his stripes and tie, Wow! white embossing on his stars and sleeve cuffs, Wow! metallic copper sparkle embossing on his buttons, hat, and lapels, and blue glitter on his vest and hat. I even made him a silver glittery sparkler!
I attached a little dowel to him using velcro and stuck him in a jar.
I even took him outside and he kicked up his heels!
