Behind the Scenes : Favorite Patriotic Header

Posted by

Did you notice we changed our blog header in preparation for July 4th?  Since we launched thecraftsdept.com, we've crafted each blog header using a specific technique, or relating to a seasonally relevant theme.

Blake came up with our most recent header.  She used red strips of paper to create the striped letters.  Once she'd cut out the text, we realized the stripes made a great background too!  Ultimately, we photographed both options with punched paper stars, on a blue linen surface.  I like them both, but I think the blue background option is easier to read.  What do you think?  Take our survey; help us choose.
