Have you ever found a trim that was just so right you had to have it???? Then create an entire project around it??? Yep me too lol. For me it was this candy cane striped tinsel trim….swoon…loved it….had to have it!!!!! So it inspired me to create a super sweet traditionally styled Jolly Santa Banner. For the Tuesday Chicks…..surprise….this is what we are making in class next week. You better be ready to work!!!!
I started with pretty paper patterns, added loads of Stickled vintage images, clothes pins, clips, bows, and the fabulous tinsel trim!!!! Thanks for the suggestion from Peep Bobbie for a traditional project : ) I really love how it turned out…..especially how it looks hanging over the cream colored bead board of the bookcase at the end of the island in my kitchen.
There are a limited number of kits available for those of you want to create the banner but can’t make the class. Click the Etsy link to hop over to the listing.
I’ve used lovely ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon for these bows…Totally Twill in Red and Chevron Satin in Red and White. Some of the vintage images I’ve used are from The Graphic’s Fairy.
Okay that’s it or today…..I’m off to prepare to join our family and friends to watch our Niece Crystal become the wife of her soul mate Brad. Should be a lovely ceremony and reception. I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G
