Birthday Banner

Scrap Whispers is having a blog hop today with a banner challenge and tutorial by Nilsa. This is the banner I made for my daughter’s birthday on Friday. I also entered this banner in a challenge on Sketches4all. Sorry the photos are so blurry…poor lighting in my living room/dining room doorway. I really should have taken the photos before hanging the banner! Here’s my entry:

Here’s a close-up:


red and white heart shaped doilies
My Mind’s Eye Wild Asparagus Birthday Girl cardstock
American Crafts cardstock (not visible)
Heidi Grace punchboard letters
Prima flowers
Making Memories brads
Folk Art Acrylic paint


Helmar 450 quick dry
Scotch Quick Dry adhesive

I’ll try to remember to make a tutorial post another day that shows how the individual pieces were mounted to the lace/ribbon so they hang straight and are removable.

    So pretty! I can’t read the name, but the pleats and the hearts are gorgeous – I bet your daughter was thrilled!
    Thanks for playing along at SW!
