CREATE Banner

Time for my February reveal over at Pages From the Heart! Our assignment for the month was to create a banner. I was given Doodlebugs' Colorwheel and Classic collections and by the end I wanted more of it because I just LOVED this paper!

Since the new year, I have seen several pictures of people's craft rooms, giving examples of how to organize just as Pages did last month. Amongst all of the great tips, I also noticed how nicely people had decorated their crafty space. So for my banner project I decided to make a "CREATE" banner to eventually hang above my scrap desk.

I started by cutting white 4 1/2" x 6" inch rectangles and 4 1/4" x 5 3/4" rectangles from the patterned paper. I then cut triangles from the bottom of the rectangles to form my flags. I used my Sew Ribbon to cut notches to be able to thread the flags together. Using my Cricut, I cut my title and circles to mat the letters. Usually I am not a fan of using glitter but I wanted an elegant, blingy look so I glittered my title with black glitter. I finished my banner by embellishing with the Doodlebug Cardstock Stickers, which provided the perfect pops of color!




You can see the full reveal along with the supply list over at the Pages blog today. Thanks for reading!

XOXO,

I haven't made a banner yet but I've always wanted to. I like how you tied the banner together with the ribbon. That paper is adorable. Looks great!

Love, love , love this way to hang the banner from the ribbon. I have done the punched holes at each edge and the banner slants:(
I have also zigzag stitched them onto twine...OK for kraft and twine but not so nice for "prettier" projects like yours.

For my next banner, I will have to try this method.
Thanks!
