Hello everyone, TinaGale here. For my project today I wanted to do something festive and fun for my office. I love having photos of my family around so this little banner will be a perfect touch. The Christmas Joy collection is one of my favorites and this turned out better than I could even anticipate with all the gold sparkles.
This would have been gorgeous even without all the embellishments but oh my I had fun decking it all out with all the different stickers and embellishments from this collection. I used some candy cane stripe twine from my stash to string it all together.
I can’t wait to hang it up in my office. It’s sure to brighten my days up while I’m working. I hope you enjoyed my little project and have been inspired to create something to decorate your space with.
I hand cut my banner using The Raven and Bats Scrapbook Papers and backed them with black cardstock. I cut 2 of each color. I roughed up the edges a bit and then stitched around the edges with black thread. I took two black doilies and cut them in half placing half on the top of each banner. I then took a punch and punched a small piece for each banner. Finally I machine stitched using a zig zag stitch:
I added two eyelets to each banner to thread my twine through. I also added some ribbon on each end of the banners to hold them in place. The black ribbon is what I cut off of the 3D Lighted Shimmers. They come with the ribbon so you can hang them.
Check out this super duper cute ghost! This is one of the new Halloween 3D Lighted Shimmers. Isn’t he adorable?! I added the “Boo” sticker from the Scary Sculpted Stickers.
This “Spooktacular” sticker is from the 3D Stickers. I just love all the dimension they add to my banner!
Here is another 3D Lighted Shimmers. Check out the cool haunted mansion! I added the “Creepy” Sculpted Sticker. So fast and easy!
The “Halloween Hauntings” sticker is from the Cardstock Sticker Sheet. I just popped it up with foam tape to give some more dimension to this banner piece. The “owl” is from the 3D Sticker Sheet.
Here are some more close ups:
You can see see the dimension these fun embellies have.
The spiderwebs and spiders are from my stash.
I saved the best photos for last! These are the 3D Lighted Shimmers lit up:
All 3 windows light up at different times:
It’s kind of hard to see the light on the ghost, but if you look closely you can see it right above his nose:
I just love all the dimension these fun Halloween embellishments gave my banner and it was so fun and easy to create!
Thanks for stopping by and stay scrappy my friends!
