I really enjoy the banners that everyone in blog land is making. I wish that mine were as spectacular - some day!! I have just been "wingin' it" as to how to make them so I thought I would show you an easy version.
I have found some great vintage pics at these sites - The Graphics Fairy (just click on search and it will take you to lots of categories) and Hub Pages (sent to an internet group I belong by a "crafty" member). So, first find your pics, save them to your computer and print on cardstock. Then, cut them out -
Please excuse my old ironing board cover but I thought that was a good working area!! I took green scrapbook paper and cut in half.
I took the scallop-type scissors shown and cut around all the edges -
I then used a glue stick to glue the clip art to the green paper -
I placed something a bit heavy on them and let them "set" overnight -
Next, is the ribbon (or whatever you want to use to hang them). I have used different variations on the banners I have made. I tried this - using glue to hold the ribbon across but then I ended up adding a strip of packing tape to make sure it was secure -
After I placed it (using clear thumbtacks) I added some St. Patrick's ribbon between the pics -
Here is the entire banner - hanging above the mantel -
I then made more using a different way to place the ribbon. I used a little rectangle hole punch and threaded ribbon thru that -
Just another variation with different ribbon -
I can't wait to try some for Easter!!!! All this is making me tired!! Remember showing you some pictures of Lucy in some "comfortable" sleeping positions?? I just don't see how this is comfy!!!!
