I saw this really cute chain featured here last July, and I decided to add it to my list. You can download the font that looks like handwriting paper for free here. I bought some handwriting paper in the school supply aisle at the grocery store, and I typed some patriotic phrases, and just let it print at random, sometimes hitting the line, sometimes missing, but the impact is the same for me.
I used some scalloped scissors I bought for a buck at the craft store.
I glued these down to colored paper for a little pop, and then used double sided 'stuff' to put together my rings.
My plan was to send these to my best friend as a countdown to her husbands return from Iraq, but....my good itentions and my actual agenda didn't work as well as I planned, so....plan B. Not as thoughtful, but....there it is anyway...
