So here are the simple details on how I made this Banner. I recycled some of my cereal boxes for the actual banner pennants (Life Style Crafts cutting die)- Nesting Pennants, then I use some Studio G paper pack (Walmart - $ .97)!!! and re cut the pennants for the banner. I distressed then with some Ranger Distress crackle paint - picket Fence. Then went over it with some tim Holtz Distress Inks - Festive Berries. I then die cut some snowflakes and used then as the attachments to connect each pennant. I then cut 1 inch strips of the patten paper to make the rosettes. Then I stamped the sentiment using the All around Sentiments Stamp set from Joyslife.com. I punched out the stamped sentiment using an 1 1/2 inch circle punch and the inked the edges and used some stickels to blink it up. For the Center of each pennant, I die cut some nesting labels from QuicKutz. Then I took some shiny silver tulle and hot glued it to the back of each label and then cut out the letters, to spell out "JOLLY". I painted the letters using Adirondack Acrylic paint dabber - Espresso. Then I use my snow pen to give them a snow effect. The poinsettia flowers on each end I cut them out using an SVG file from svgcuts.com . Then I just embellished each letter with anything I had on hand. So there you have it! Easy as one, two, three!!!! So, if you are interested in the stamp set I used her in this project or in seeing what other stamp sets Joy's Life Stamps has just go to Joyslife.com.
