click on the pics for a bigger versionMy gorgeous friend Kellie designed the banner & I loved it so much & knew my class ladies would too, that I asked her if I could use it for my class. It's a bit tricky to fit & light 1.2 metres of banner in a photo though!
Here's a single pennant to show more detail!
The colours I used are riding hood red, old olive, certainly celery and early espresso together with the Letters to Santa & striped Patterns (celery & olive) DSPs. The DSP circle & scallop circle are punched out, pierced & attached to the pennant. The letters are of course from my very well used Timeless Type alphabet die set. I used linen thread to hold the banner together, but our new Bakers Twine (Summer Mini) would be perfect for this project too.
It looks like a bit of work to make, but as the pennants & flags & letters are cut using the petal cone die (see the pic below) & the circles are punches, it's pretty quick.
Each die cut makes 2 pennants. Simply cut off the tab & then cut the remaining cones in half. The rounded end is simply folded over the string & adhered - easy! The flags are cut out in early espresso card, folded in half over the string. Al little pearl adds some shine.
If you like this idea, leave me a comment to say hi & I'll pass it on to Kellie too (she's a bit of a bad blogger these days but I still love you heaps Kellie!).
Back again soon.
Inky wishes, Di
