Here is my "Banner Project" made for my niece's "Sweet 15" Birthday. . .The full banner reads "Happy Birthday" just didn't have room to hang the "Happy" ~ LOL!
This project was so much fun and it is so easy to fold up and put away for the next special occasion. I plan on making more for the upcoming holidays, like a "Happy Easter" banner. . . and the colors are perfect!
SUPPLIES FOR BANNER:
Paper: white card stock with printed music sheet image from Free Music Sheet and inked with Anna Griffith - Robin's Egg; and miscellaneous pieces of cardstock. Ribbons are from Offray and are 5/8" - the colors used are Iris & Light Pink, along with Silver Pearl Strings glued above the dyed cotton lace. I used 5" - lace paper doilies inked with Stampology - Aquamarine (i love their inks for distressing). Letters were cut with the Cricut using the Base Camp cartridge and then embossed with silver embossing powder. Buttons: pink, purple and aquamarine. I used a hot glue gun to keep it all together, went a lot faster than using my glue runner (cheaper too). Circles and scalloped circles were made with the Mini Monograms Cricut cartridge, so quick and easy. An EK Success Punch - Embossed Curve was used for the scalloped edge on top of the pennant.
Note: the music sheets were chosen especially for my niece, who plays piano and guitar, and has a real love for music.
