My all-time favorite creation for Christmas is the J-O-Y banner that I store in the tin DVD cases from the clearance rack.  We made these for class last week and we had a blast with them.  They all turned out so beautiful too!!

 I put it longways on the stampin up desktop protectors so you could see the length we made it.  the squares are the scallop square die for the big shot.  The ribbon is the 1 1/4" stripped ribbon, then we punched out christmas trees and ornaments with the SU punches.  Also used buttons and ribbon for deco as well.  Now below is each letter up close to get a better view.

 With the square scallop punch we stamped out from the designer Christmas paper to decorate the J.
 Used the ornament punch and the Letters to Santa  DSP to punch out an ornament and hung with gold cord, bells and a ribbon
 For the Y we used the Pennant punch to make the Christmas tree, used the pearls to decorate the tree and then glued on a designer button with a 1/8 ribbon tied to it.

Here is the Y block again so you can see the bottom of the banner.  We tied a 1/2" ribbon onto the large ribbon and snipped the ends to add detail.  Then glued a large pearl onto the knot.

What do you think?  The back is the same color scalloped square to make it finished AND can be the place where you journal, etc. to make it your Christmas card!!

I decorated the dvd tin with the Letters to Santa designer paper cut outs and some ribbon to tie it shut.  What a pretty Christmas "card" to receive, don't you think?  IF you use my idea, please send them to my blog here in your description as a courtesy.  Thank you!!  Enjoy making this FUN banner with no ink involved this time!!
