After watching an awesome "Vintage Banner" YouTube vid by Jo, I was inspired to create a banner myself. Here's how it turned out....
I just love how it turned out. Now let me tell you how I created this fun little project.
I created the base using some leftover cardboard that I cut out using my Sizzix Framelits Banner die. I then stained the banners with my LSG Dark Chocolate Truffle Color Shot.
I used the Ladies & Gents and Trendsetter petite paper pack by Webster's Pages. I cut out the inside banner using the smaller banner framelit die. I also used some of the Images & Phrases stickers from the collection. I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch holes in the corners so I could run seam binding to string the banner together.
I accented the banner with lots of cute little embellishments. I used my all-time favorite bling from CTMH - Opaques Mocha Adhesive Gems and some burlap squares by Canvas Corp.
I also used Maya Road chipboard and corrugated shapes by Jillibean Soup. I love Maya Road chipboard, they have the cutest shapes and you can alter them to match any project. I used the Mini Chipboard Cameos Set and the Birds w/ Cages Mini Chipboard Set.
I used a lot of different LSG products, paints, and even some crackle medium to alter the embellishments. Here are the LSG colors I used: Green with Envy Green Starburst Stain, Tainted Love Teal Starburst Stain, and Desert Moon Cactus Gold Glitz Spritz.
I also used some of my favorite MFT dies. Here are the ones that I used: 1/4" Rosette, Butterflies, Dizzy Doily Duo (not pictured!), First Place Award Banner, and the Sweet Stack Labels.
And of course, I had to include flowers on my project. Most of them are from I Am Roses, but the turquoise flowers are by Prima and the white branch came from JoAnn's.
Here's a close up of each pennant.
I will post a video showing how I created the banner in a few days when I am feeling a bit better. Hope everyone is having a whimsical Sunday! :)
