This is the pennant banner I made today. It says "Fairy Friends". I am busy finishing up items for the charity auction Christmas tree I am putting together tomorrow with ladies from my service club!
I tried it out on my own tree, which stands naked in the parlor awaiting the completion of the Charity Tree. Our tree is being dedicated to Judy Dimond, a former member of our group who passed away in January. We are naming it "Judy Gets Her Wings" ... She really is and has always been an angel!!
This simple banner was made by printing off this great frame I found on Graphics Fairy (Minus the bow that was on the bottom of the original, to better fit the triangular shape.) I loved the birds, and thought they went well with our garden fairy theme. Then I glued the triangles to the blue paper and used pinking sheers to trim them. A circle of glue with red glitter competed them. Attaching them with old red seam binding was a snap!
Here are some of the other projects I finished up, including the wrapping paper for the 'gifts' under the tree. I can't wait to get it all put together and take pictures. This project has been swimming in my head all year. I hope that you appreciate that our bright color scheme and happy fairy subject really do reflect our lovely friend Judy, who was amazing in every way. We hope this tribute will show our love and respect for her.
Come back tomorrow morning to see the finished tree!
