We love making banners and hanging decorations for each season, and after Lydia had her demo a few weeks ago, Fall Decor, we just HAD to use the little pumpkin dangle!!
This style of art is similar to quilling, in that you can create shapes from strips of paper!!
We used the Banner Punch Board by WE R. If you haven't seen this tool yet, you have got to swing by the store to check it out! The punch board comes with the templates to make 3 different styles of banner shapes and it allows you to make banners that are just 1 inch wide -- for cards-- aaallll the way up to 8 inches wide --- for events!! And, it even has a built in punch so all you need is string to make your banner customized! (We also twine and ribbon by the yard, and we have an AMAZING selection!)
When we cut out our banner, we used patterned and solid papers that had a fall-theme. We also wanted to use some images to make the banner really *pop.* We decided on images that had a fall-feel that were not too "Halloween" since we want to keep this banner up until Thanksgiving. The images we chose were: raven, branchy tree, and 3 leaf shapes from our die-cut machine.
The Trim Tree die-cut is one from Memory Box and WE LOVE IT. With the fall paper, it just looks so good!!
