Even though Thanksgiving isn't even here yet (my very pregnant self is sooooo craving Thanksgiving dinner) I've been crafting for Christmas and have two very fun banners to share.
I LOVE banners and buntings and garland and pennants.
I can't get enough of them.
To me they make me feel like a party is always going on.
They make me smile and make my heart happy.
So here I am to share two new additions to our handmade Christmas decor!
First up is my fun take on November's My Paper Pumpkin by Stampin Up!
My Paper Pumpkin is a fun monthly kit that shows up on your door steps once a month full of goodies and a pre-planned project for you.
November's project wasn't to make a banner though! When I opened the box I instantly knew I would not be turning these beautiful papers, stamps and embellishments into Christmas cards (their planned project for us).
I knew without a doubt that I wanted to turn this into a Christmas banner to enjoy year after year after year.
The kit included everything but the rhinestones, ribbon, buttons and eyelets.
With a little creativity here is a close up of what I came up with.
I'm in love with the little stars sewn together that did come in the kit. They are absolutely adorable!
Now, scroll down to enjoy a few too many pictures of this sweet banner :)
For the sake of photographing I hung it from my sewing desk shelves.
After Thanksgiving it will have a new home in our entry way.
Now on to this little cutie!
She is so shiny and glittery and I'm in love with this one as well.
All I did to make this one was glitter a sheet of card stock and used my Silhouette to cut the letters out for me. I punched some holes and strung it up with Stampin' Up! cherry cobbler bakers twine.
In order to thicken up each letter I cut a second set of letters on non-glittered card stock and taped to the backs.
And as you can see my sewing desk shelves helped me display this one as well.
Come to think of it, I might need to make something or my sewing desk, too!
Happy Christmas Crafting!
