Free is good…
Feeling free, living free … free to be you & me.

Want to see what I made so far?
For lack of a better name – Patriotic Accordion Wheels.
If you know what these are really called do let me know.
Patriotic Accordion Wheels
What you need:
- images downloaded from GraphicStock.com
- wooden skewer or dowel
- embellishments from your stash
What you need to do:
Fold the stars sheets accordion style, then bend the folded strips in half.
Glue the edges together to create a 1/2 fan. Hold with paper clips until dry.
Glue two 1/2 fans together to create a wheel.
To make 3 wheels you need 6 star sheets – 2 sheets each.
Cut out the flag image.
Glue skewer or dowel to the back ~ let dry.
Now for the fun part – decorate!
Remember I said FREE – so head to your stash!
This is what I found in mine:
- gold glitter
- gold tinsel garland
- a broken gold beaded ring
- a vintage gold lame’ dress that was in tatters
Wish we were making these together, I would tell you all about the Great Gatsby party that I wore the gold dress to… what a night!
Lightly spread glue on the very edges of the wheel. Gently dip in a small pile of glitter.
Same with the tinsel garland but you may need to hold in place with paper clips until dry
Glue on some free stuff in the center & tie on some ribbon & you are done!
These would be fun for Christmas too – just find a repeat pattern at Graphic Stock after you sign up for your free week.
