Christmas Banner

  It's done! Yesterday I finished making the Christmas banner for my friend, Angela's store window. Here's the big reveal!

I'm so in love with it that I HAVE to make one of these banners for myself!

Supplies used:

  • Patterned paper - 5 patterns
  • Solid cardstock - cream, green, red
  • Eyelets
  • Stickles - brown
  • Ribbon
  • Cricut machine. Cartridges used: George & Basic Shapes (rectangle), Winter Wonderland (scalloped tag), & Alphalicious (letters)

A close up while just after I finished putting on the Stickles (glitter glue)
  Fun little tip: While I was oh-so-carefully applying the Stickles, my hand slipped & I got a little glob off the line I was working on. I asked my daughter to quickly run & grab me a Q-tip. She came back with some toothpicks! Haha! It ended up being a fantastic mistake because I tried them & they worked like a charm! The tiny little end made it perfect for tidying up the uneven parts or any stray sparkles. 


What crafts are you currently working on? I realize that those of you who live in the U.S.A. will be celebrating Thanksgiving soon whereas we've already celebrated that holiday here in Canada. 
Do you decorate for Christmas before American Thanksgiving or after?

Whatever the case may be...Enjoy your day!

  6. This is an amazing idea. I wish I wasn't away for Christmas - I'm not sure how conventional it is to take all of your Christmas presents with you!

    My first ever Christmas Link Party is still on and I would really love it if you would join my humble- sized party, but amazing crowd of crafters.  I hope you have the time to pop along and post.
