I’ve definitely got a new hobby these days…banner making! You’ve seen some of the holiday banners I’ve made, but today I’ve got a couple of new ones to share. I even recieved my first “order” at a family Christmas party this past weekend!
Remember this one? My advent calendar? I still love all the colors & patterns & textures! 🙂
This one was very easy…found it for free online, printed on cardstock, and ran a ribbon through it!
I know you’ve already seen these next 3…so forgive me. I had to include them again because I think they are so pretty!
I even accessorize my bookshelf with banners!! 🙂
Here’s a new one for ya…”Wish!” It’s part of a snow-themed set, and I wish the picture had turned out a little better. The snowflakes are brown cardstock and the letters a beautiful shimmery silver topped with silver glitter “snow.”
I made this set for a family Christmas party & my great-aunt H stole them away during the gift swap. I’m so happy she got them & I hope she’ll enjoy them this winter!
My Mom oohhed and aahhed over my Advent banner so much that I knew I just had to make her one. She went with an “old fashioned Christmas” theme, so I made the banner match accordingly.
This one probably stressed me out the most in the creation process, because I wanted it to be perfect. I used glitter to make the circles behind the letters look like ornaments, the letters are a gorgeous gold glitter, and I love the addition of the mistletoe between the letters. I think it’s pretty “Merry!”
I also tried something new with the “Christmas” by adding little decals between each flag of the banner…I like the look it gave overall.
Here’s the finished product & combo hanging on Mom & Dad’s wall…*sigh of relief that she loved it!*
I think I showed you this one also…my “Happy Birthday” banner to keep & display on birthdays. Or on boy birthdays. I’m kind of thinking I want to make a girly one with cupcakes for girl birthdays. 😉
I also made one that matches this and says “Congrats!” to hang for Chris’ graduation & other big affairs.
And finally, my yellow & gray banner w/ our name on it. I made it for our family pics, and now it is gracing the walls of our laundry room. It brings a ray of sunshine to a room that doesn’t exactly make me smile…
*Bright pastels for a couple of sweet little girls rooms (my first order!)
*Happy New Year!
*More winter banners…after the first set I made Mom & I both decided we needed a set!
Looks like my Christmas break will be spent crafting! <And my Spring break…and my summer break…I can’t stop until all the holidays are bannerfied!>
KEEP CALM & GET CRAFTY!
P.S. – Wanna make a banner yourself? It’s super easy…I made all of these using pretty scrapbook paper, scissors, glue, ribbon, a hole punch, and glitter! Since I don’t have a fancy cricut, I printed the letters off on my printer & cut those baby’s out. You can do it!
Or, if you just don’t wanna, you can get in touch with me about making you a banner. 🙂 firstname.lastname@example.org
