Just wanted to share a fun project I just finished. This banner is made of 12 by 12 scrapbook card stock. I love the black and white combinations and chose three, that I alternated.
I chose the 'stencil' font on my computer for the letters, and then cut them out in ovals and added a trim around them before gluing them on the flags (12" by 4 ") with Tacky Glue.
Then the flags were glued on the vintage trim with hot glue.
I was a little surprised by how big the banner turned out, but I do like the impact it makes. Definitely a 'centerpiece' for the room.
These close up shots show some of the details. The 'B' flag has a gathered crepe paper border, the 'E' has a scalloped cut border of another b & w print. The "S" has a vintage b &w woven trim.
I added a crow silhouette for the space between words that I made by coloring a crow I got off Graphics Fairy with a Sharpy marker. Last of all I tied bits of trims, vintage lace, torn muslin, crepe paper and ribbons between the flags.
I would like to thank my friend Jenn whose amazing flag banners have influenced me to try a hand at my own.
