Hello girls!!! I have this awsome project that I want to share with you!!!! I am going to show you how to make a “name banner”. These are so cute ~ my mom and her friend have been making tons of them for friends and family. The college girls love them to decorate their dorm room/door with.
You will need: chipboard, pattern paper, large chipboard letters or large letter stickers, ribbon/lace, paint (optional) & misc matching embellishments.
Step 1 ~ Gather your supplies:
Step 2 ~ Decide what name you would like to create and trim enough chipboard for each letter in the name. I used the 4″ Sizzix circle or you could just do squares. Then paint the “backs” of you chipboard circles (or you could use cardstock or pp) and paint the front of your letters (if using naked chipboard letters):
Step 3 ~ Adhere co-ordinating pattern paper to “front” of chipboard squares (liquid adhesive works best):
Step 4 ~ Add letters and embellishments to the pattern paper/”front” side of your chipboard squares:
Step 5 ~ Punch holes opposite each other on the left side of the circle and the right side of the circle. Tie short pieces of lace/ribbon to connect each letter in the proper order. I used longer pieces for the ends so I had something to hang it by. Hang & enjoy!!!!
The possibilities are endless and I would love to see everyones projects ~ post them in the gallery at SnS. Have fun girls!!!
PS: Rhea ~ be looking for this in your mailbox in about a week (I plan on mailing it to you on Monday). And I hope it will match your SB room (you recently painted it pink right?).
