*Warning* LOTS of photos.
So here's my Easter banner I made that I totally adore. When I first started it I was a little unsure if I was going to be able to pull it off. Actually a lot unsure. Well, it wound up being one of my favorite things I ever made. I must have gone back in the living room 20 times that night just to look at it LOL
Yeah you can say I am patting myself on the back here. :)
That little yellow duck/bunny (I dunno what the heck) is actually an elf. I found him in TJ Maxx & he is made by the same designer (Annalee) as my Elf on the Shelf that I picked up at Christmas.
He's not as mischievous as Murry was though!
Hmmm....We still gotta name this little guy???
Oh & yes that is a true Brooklyn fireplace LOL A good ole' radiator HaHaHa!

Here are a few photos of it in process. If you have any questions please feel free to post or email me.
|I first used my ATG to apply paper to chipboard banners & then used an|
exacto knife to cut around banner shape.
|For the rosettes I carefully scored in between each scallop. |
Easier said than done :) Definitely gets a little tedious.
|I applied wet glue around all edges & then used my brayer to make |
sure the glue spread well & went to edges.
*I do this when making mini albums as well
|I cut the centers from doilies & scrunched them up on a dot of hot glue.|
I then placed a small punched circle in center to finish it off.
|Cutting out all the butterflies on my Cricut. I layered them with vellum cut |
butterflies & placed them on dimensional glue dots
|Stringing the banner.|
|I used a piece of scotch tape on end of ribbon to make threading it |
through the small holes on the banner easier.
Thank you so very much for looking!
Enjoy the week ahead!
