This was made from an SVG kit I purchased http://www.svgcuts.com It is their Stars & Stripes kit.
I made 21 of these to use as centerpieces for a golf tournament luncheon. I did modify the file to fit our “Beach Par-Tee” theme.
The modifications I made were first to enlarge it to about 11″ in height. I also replaced the star cutouts in the original file with a seashell, seahorse and starfish that I found in the basic shapes library in my Sure Cuts A Lot software from http://www.craftedge.com
I Put a layer of seaglass inside and used a battery operated pillar candle and surrounded it with real seashells. The outside is embellished with a real shell, some beach themed buttons and a paper starfish (also from svgcuts).
I love this project and so did the 144 attendees.
