Pennant Banner Noel


When I saw this Pennant Banner tutorial yesterday on SCS I KNEW I had to do it! It was simple to follow although it probably took me nearly 2 hours from start to finish. Let me just say, I'm NOT good with decorative scissors....rofl
I used the Figgy Pudding DP and Cool Caribbean Cardstock. The ribbon is from MayArts and matches pretty good!! The letters and snowflakes are SU! chipboard from the Mini Catty.
I taped the pennants to the ribbon with sticky tape and then used a Pewter Jumbo Eyelet on each corner. Should hold pretty well....I hope!
The chipboard letters were covered in Choc Chip Craft ink and heat set. I then coloured the snowflakes with Cornflower Blue Making Memories Paint and dumped Heat and Stick Powder on them. After heating that I used Dazzling Diamonds. IRL it's really sparkly!
To attach the letters and snowflakes I used Crystal Effects....that stuff is wonderful!
Well I must run....my company will be arriving shortly! I will have to catch up on all my usual blog challenges tomorrow sometime.
Hope you all have a great weekend!

Your banner rocks, Dawn! Fantastic!! I love the paper you used, and it looks to me like you had no problem with those decorative scissors at all!

That turned out really cute! So the only thing about this though is that you probably can't reuse for next year, can you? I mean will it hold it's shape and color? Awesome handmade decor though!
