Christmas Banner # 1

This time next week we shall be celebrating Christmas Day – I have decorated my house (3 Christmas trees) and my husband had decorated the front garden.  Practically all the decorations we have put up are ‘shop bought’ which is strange when I spend most of my time ‘crafting’ but it true when they say ‘ the shoe-makers children are the last ones to get shoes’!!!  My house is usually the last to get hand made decor – but I do have a couple of banners which I made and have displayed.

Banner 1

This is one of the projects we made for the Stampin’ Getaway I hosted in October. It is about 36″ long and has lots of shiny glitteryness (its a word ~ honest!)  You can see I used the Tea Lace Paper Doilies which are 4″ diameter with Real Red and Garden Green card with Silver Glimmer Paper, Red and Silver Foil Sheets for all the embellishments.  I think I used most of the punches in my collection.Wherever I could, I put a rhinestone ~ so there is about 60 or 70 on the entire banner.

The center piece uses the Reason for the Season Stamp Set with a silver  Metallic Foil Doily behind the red star.

Each piece is held on the ribbon with a Clothes Pin so it will pack away safely for next year.  .


Hope you enjoyed this project – leave me a comment at the bottom 🙂
