Red White and Blue Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon


Hey there Paper Peeps! We are starting a new Red White and Blue Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I chose to make a banner…..a patriotic banner….SURPRISE! Okay..I know you’re not surprised lol. You would be more surprised if I didn’t make a new patriotic banner right???

Patriotic Banner 1I’ve got Red White and Blue and Patriotic covered on this festive  holiday banner. I started with a base of 150 lb cardstock and layered on a ton of patterned papers. I added images from my Beach Babes Collage Sheet that I Stickled the patootie out of. Next came lot’s of Tim Holtz metal embellies and Petaloo Sugared Blooms. I’m using Navy Blue  Silky Crush Ribbon to hang the banner sections on as well as extra tags to hang between. The images of the flag shields were also heavily Stickled…..boy did my hand hurt after all that!  Notice how I added the bronze colored Eyelets?  That prevents the ribbon from pulling through so this will be a great addition to the seasonal decor for a long long time : )
