Hello everyone, it is Heidi and today I am gonna show you a fabulous project that was so much fun creating but very simple. I have never made one of these in all the time I have been crafting since I always struggled on knowing how to hang them (let alone where). But when Gina asked me for a word I knew it had to be the word INSPIRE since I knew I was gonna need a lot of it to make this. So this is how my "kit" came.
Ok, so the doilies (which remember are my favorite embellishments!) didn't come with the set but I knew immediately that I was going to have to use them on that bare cardstock. I wanted this project to stay as natural as possible but you know me, I had to add a little "vintage" and sparkle to it as well! So I set to painting the banners with a little texture. If you see in the picture just under the word inspire are the printed rosettes (so EASY to put together too- Gina has them all scored and ready to go!).
Here is the letter S- so to tell you how I did each of the little flags: I painted them with a little white paint and just added a little stickles. The next layer is the beautiful doily, the rosettes, then a couple double bows in aqua satin and sheer white tied with twine which I left hanging. The letters were painted with a pool adirondeck paint and then I added a little white flocking and some stickles around the edges. I think that they look so vintage/romantic.
So here is the banner. I tried to hang it somewhere where you could see it well enough to photograph it. It won't stay here because I would not be able to get into my cabinet but I am thinking my walls are a nice chocolate shake brown and this will be beautiful on the wall (once I wrangle hubby into hanging it properly).
Another close up of the flags- here you can see the layers a bit more, nice and thick! Stop on over to Gina's to get your own banner!
