Spring Time Banner

Yoohoo! Spring is on its way in cold, wet and snowy Michigan, well at least I hope it is. Anyway, with spring in mind, I created this festive Spring Time Banner that could be used for several occasions.



 Supplies -
Multiple colors of cardstock
Gelli printed papers
Blank Page Muse Grungy Circles stamp
Ink pads to match your paper colors
2 different lace dies
Flower dies
Hello wreath die
Assorted leaf/greenery dies
White paper doilies
String
White cardstock

First of all, I want to say that I cut the banners by hand, but if you have a die use it! It would be much easier than cutting them by hand.

I started off cutting the white banner backs from cardstock then cut down the colored cardstock to fit on top of the white back.  I then stamped the white banners with the grungy circles stamp in coordinating colors.





Then, sorting through all of the gelli printed papers I have, I cut many leaves/greenery and flowers to use on the top of the banners along with the lace borders at the top. I also used white doilies in place of the lace borders.




To assemble, take the stamped white banner, place a colored banner over this along with either the lace border or doily, not both. I played with the colors and arrangements until I liked them, then started to glue them in place. I only glued along the top edge of the banners and borders.



I then took the die cut flowers and leaves and began to stack and layer them on top of the banners. When they were in place, I began to glue them in place.

The middle Hello banner was layered with a doily and glued down. I then punched holes in the top corners of each banner for the string to go through.




I now have a finished border to help bring in spring!

Here are the other participants in the hop! have lots of fun checking out all of the great works of art.
