This week we are honoring all the men and women who bravely sacrifice so much for our freedoms...those past and present...please join the challenge by posting your Veteran or Troop project at My Sheri Crafts



(1) ea 5x7" piece of tan and white cardstock

5x5 black cardstock

sticky strip


metal charm

inks and chalks

cricut and printer


In a word program, copy out the poem "In Flanders Fields" so that the text is in paragraph form, not poem form ( I have it saved if you would like me to email it to you) and 5" across at least 5" high...

Print the text on your white cardstock leaving 1" on each side

Score each of the tan and white cs pieces at 1/2" and 1" from each of the shorter sides (Picture #1)

Using a circle cutter (I used a coluzzle) cut out a 3 1/4" circle out of the middle of the white cardstock

With the white on top of the tan, lightly trace out the circle onto the tan

Using various shades of greens and browns, and a small paintbrush, chalk out a camoflage background onto the tan extending just beyond the circle shape (Picture #2)

Cut a 4 1/4" circle out of the center of the 5x5 black cs...and using the negative part, adhere to the tan cardstock

Cut out an army shape with your cricut...I used a dingbat called Soldier WW2, and place on top of the chalking positioning so you would be able to view from the hole cut in the white cs when placed on top...I used pop dots for an extra bit of dimension (Picture #3)

Using a border stamp, stamp the outer 1/2" of the white with a brown/green mixture of inks

Ink all the edges of the white, inside the circle and around the outer edge with brown and green inks

Cut a 1 1/2" oval tag and run through printer with words Thank You for your sacrifice, loop a key ring in the hole

Adorn with a small red poppy, topped with a button

Add a metal embellishment to the bottom left side

Put a length of sticky strip on the outer 1/2" of the tan cs and carefully peel and adhere the white on top...crease the folds to form a "box" and display (Picture # 3)
