colorful banner.. how to

colorful banner
this is how i made it

these are the papers i choose
the check is american crafts
the other 2 from me and my big ideas

then i needed to cut a banner shape
which i picked the celebrations cartridges
cause of the cute little flowers.. thought they would add a nice texture

i needed 8 total

once cut.. i painted the edges bright lime green 

and hung them to dry

the next morning..
i put foam squares for height

and set aside

pulled out think embossing enamel and glue

cut black chipboard slightly bigger then the green check
added glue

spread it around

sprinkled on the embossing powder


set aside and did 7 more

then put banner shapes together

now for the fabric
i choose the same damask as my curtains 
and some charcoal wool

thought it looked great together!

cut into strips

i choose not to sew together.. but wanted the fibers and strings hanging out for added texture

and tied a knot

and tied to next banner shape

yay! that's done

now onto the letters
there are 3 layers
i used my new storybook cartridge

laying together..

i decided to paint the edges of the green accents just like i did the banner shape itself

then pasted them together

added a little stickels

and ribbon ~ then pasted it all together

and there you have it..

to complete i added "scrapbooker"
pretty happy with its turning out!
