i totally 'lifted' this project from grace tolman in the cricut holidays latest edition.
this is 'my' take on it. i'll make a few more for my girls just cause i think it's a lovely banner. it won't take up too much room by hanging it vertically.
i used MOTHERS DAY BOUQUET for the scalloped circle cut at w-3.78", h-3.59"
i then cut the circles at w-3.14", h-3.00"
then using STORYBOOK i cut the letters 'believe' at w-1.38", h-2.53"
i used tim holtz 'vintage shabby' blue paper and matted it onto kraft and also used the kraft for the letters. with a slotted punch i punched the slots at the top and bottom of each circle, then ran my ribbon behind, before glueing onto the kraft scalloped circle. i have a rather large stash of home-made and bought flowers. i dug into that stash and found the ones i thought matched up well and every other letter has a cute flower.
i really like how it turned out.
it's approximately 30" long and is perfect for a narrow space.
thanks for stopping by to take a look.
