Butterfly Mini Pennant Banner
Michelle here with a project that I have been itching to make for our kitchen window.
I wanted to make something that would be perfect for Spring all the way through Summer.
I love the colors red, turquoise, gold and black. Add butterflies and you have a perfect combination, right?
I hope you'll forgive me that I don't have a detailed tutorial like I usually do, but in this case, I did not have a master plan. I just made it up as I went! And I had a blast!
The letters "LOVE" are from The Robins Nest Glittered Red Stickers.
The base of each pennant is made from canvas drop cloth. You can get it in the painting section of any home improvement store. Soooo much cheaper than buying it at the fabric store. The pennant triangle shapes were from a Stampin Up pennant die. I just traced the cloth to be bigger than the largest pennant.
I used a butterfly die and butterfly punches on music sheet paper.
I used my butterfly die and punches on Red and Gold Glittered Chipboard from The Robins Nest. The gold and shiny red you see around the edges of everything is made with Inka Gold.
I simply applied it with my finger. I guess you can guess by now that I'm a 'hands on crafter'. :)
Obsidian Diamond Dew Drops.
Here is some of the paper from The Robins Nest that was used in the making of the banner.
Red Glitter Paisley
Valentine Heart Cardstock
Valentine Stripe Cardstock & (not shown) for the teal rosettes- Black Glittered Fleur.
Both Tombo and Aleen's extra tacky glue were to assemble all the fun.
Then tied everything together with a pretty sheer ribbon.
It was so fun to make!
Gina's Designs for chipboards and die cuts are so easy to use and work with any project.
I hope you liked my project and are inspired to make one of your own!
