I have to start by thanking Andrea, my daughter, for hosting her second First Sunday of the Month Afternoon Crafting event. We all had a great time. In October we made the Frightful Wreath from the Simply Created Kit.
So for her First Sunday of the Month Crafting in November she thought a Thanksgiving/Autumn banner would be appropriate and fun. And fun it was!
This was my prototype which I know I’ve already shared.
The banners were all based around:
- Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper
- Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Mossy Meadow, Raspberry Ripple and Soft Suede card stocks
- Champagne and Gold Glimmer Papers
- 1-1/4″ Burlap Ribbon
- 1-3/8″ Clothespins
- Big Shot
- Dies: Designer Rosette Die, Circle Collection Framelits, Retired Alphabet Die
- Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Mod Podge and Hot Glue/Gun
And the words used were:
- Thankful x 2
- Give Thanks
It was a great day and lots of fun. YOU can make a banner too.
Choose your words. Cut out that many pieces of pennants. (You’ll have to create a pattern first.). Cut Designer Series Paper or card stock to fit each pennant. Adhere to the cardboard pennants. Create lollies for each pennant in coordinating colors. Attach to pennant with hot glue. Cut out a 1-3/8″ circle and attach it to the top of the lolly with hot glue. Cut out your letters with the Big Shot. Attach to circles with either Dimensionals or Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Simple but time consuming. And fun!
Thank you for visiting my blog today and I look forward to seeing you again tomorrow.
PS–I didn’t realize I had “published” today’s entry before I was done writing it! Ahhh, the work in progress.
