Fall is in the Air
The theme this week at SweetSassyDiva is Fall is in the Air (but in my neck of the woods we could see some snow tonight - oh yea !). I chose to make a simple banner using some of my favorite (but almost gone) Stampin Up designer paper.
The banner is cut from Country Life at 7.75". I attached the layers to the ribbon using some copper brads.
The letters are from Birthday Bash cut at 2.5". I inked the edges of the shadow layer with Marina Mist and used dimensionals to attach the top layer. I tied some brown bakers twine to buttons that came from one of my husbands old shirts and randomly placed on each letter.
The rosette is made from 2 strips of 1.5" x 11" paper that is scored every 1/2" and accordion folded. I wish I could show how you to actually finish making these, but there are lots of tutorials out there to help you better than I can :) I can tell you that I have found the only way to hold them together is to dig out the hot glue gun !
I added a brown corduroy button to the center while the glue was still hot... it won't be going anyhwere :)
