Have you been enjoying the hop? I certainly have and am inspired by everyone's projects.
One of the things I LOVE to make are these special banners that fold up into these metal cases. I give them to special friends and they are also great to mail in an envelope. The metal case protects them on their trip.
You can make the letters in several ways. Use the Alphabet Die for your Big Shot, use the stencil that comes with the Banner Kit in the Holiday Mini Catalog, or I used some retired alphabet sheets that were on the clearance rack.
I used the wide 1 1/2" striped ribbon. This year they have the beautiful cherry cobbler wire edged ribbon you could use. Use TWO scallop squares and glue them on both sides of the ribbon for each letter.
I used the postage punch and some designer paper here, also a button.
I love adding the ornament inside the "O", and hanging it with a ribbon and cord.
We decorated each scallop square any way we desired. Here is a button and a tree with pearls.
Putting it on our table protector pages, it gives you an idea of just how large and beautiful these are.
Hope you enjoyed my idea. You can spell whatever you want and use whatever papers, ribbons, punches, and embellishments you desire to create your OWN banner. HOPE, PEACE, LOVE, etc. are just a few suggestions for what you would make with YOUR banner. I would love to see what you create. Please share with me if you make one from my inspiration, won't you? I would really enjoy seeing what YOU CREATE!!
