My Christmas Banner

I decided I needed a new banner for our fireplace this Christmas but I didn’t want to spend a lot of time making it, so I knew I needed to keep it simple.  Punches and dies to the rescue!

Christmas BannerI started by cutting out some of the red and white striped paper from the Season of Style DSP stack into the pennant shapes.  Then I die cut one of the snowflake shapes using the Festive Flurry framelits and the Champagne Glimmer Paper.  I punched a 1-3/4″ circle using my circle punch and white card stock.  Then I die cut the letters from Cherry Cobbler card stock using the Typeset Alphabet Bigz dies.

Enjoy your Thursday!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. That is BEAUTIFUL Amy, wow!!! Really fabulous! With your gold glimmer snowflakes, did you use heat and stick powder or perhaps the adhesive sheets?? Very impressive and beautiful (as is your fireplace; smiles!)! TFS!

    • That’s exactly what I do. I just keep feeding the different flags through with a little stitching between each one. It makes it very easy to store them for next year, as I just just stack each flag on top of each other. Plus, it only takes a couple of minutes to do.
