Today is our very first Banner Blog Hop and are you in for a treat today! We have 21 AmAzInG Ladies that are participating with 21 different Give-Aways!!
Let's start off with my banner. I created a New Year's Eve banner. It says CHEERS!! My whole family is going to be together for New Year's Eve and Day. I thought it would be so much fun to make and hang up a banner for the festivities. I always decorate for Christmas and seem to forget New Years. So this year I'm going to make sure New Years is not forgotten at my house.
Here's my banner with the beautiful fall leaves behind (by Dec. 31st I hope it will be a white wonderland out of my window!).
Here is a close up of the champagne glasses, one for each banner. I used my awesome PK-680 Retro Paper Doll Faces Assortment! I love this set and thought it would be perfect for this banner!!
Here's another shot of the banner on the wall.
To create the "fan" 3D embellishment behind each letter I used a video tutorial that I found on youtube. Here is a link to the original video that I watched. It's by Christina at Creations with Christina. It's a beautiful embellishment and so quick and easy. I don't even have a score-pal or Martha Stewart scoring board. I just used my paper trimmer with my bone folder.
On this close up you can really see the Twinking H2O paints that I used. These paints are fantastic. They shimmer and sparkle after they are dry. They are made by Creative Imaginations and I bought mine at Scrapbook.com. You can see them here Twinkling H2O's Wildflowers. I adore them!!
