Spring banner

 Hi everyone, it's Grace and I'm here to share a fun Spring banner that's a "breeze" to make.

I started with Clear N Chip Little Miss Molly. Instead of putting them together as a minibook, I combined the acrylic and chipboard blocks to make the base of my banner.


I layed them out and then pulled out some chipboard letters to spell out "spring". I used some very old Making Memories one. I also added two more blocks on each end of the letters to add some embellishments.


then I pulled some My little shoe box papers and trimmed them to fit inside the blocks with about 1/4" smaller on all sides of the blocks. This way you can still see the base of the banners.


Then I inked the edges of all the paper blocks.


After a few changes of pattern here and there, I then pulled the film from the acrylic pieces.


After that, I adhered the papers to the banner foundations.


Then I glued the chipboard letters. Since chipboard is a little heavier and I wanted to make sure that the banner last a while, I used some tough liquid adhesive.


Next, I started working on some of the embellishments that I will add to the banner. The Little Miss Molly pack had flowers in it so I grabbed a couple of acrylic ones and one big chipboard flower to add to the banner. With the acrylics, I added glitter glue on the edges of them. This way, they show up against the papers but you can still see the acrylic shape.


then I painted the big chipboard flower with blue pastel color. A hue that will go well with the Spring theme.


After painting it, I decided to add a little bit more shine to the flower so I spritzed it with glimmer mist.


I pushed the embellishments to the side to let it dry then I worked on putting the blocks together. I punched out holes on the chipboard and acrylic blocks. The ones that had tabs on them, I punched the holes on the tabs.


I picked some silk think ribbons to tie the blocks together.


I alternated the yellow and purple ribbons.


Now comes the funnest part of the project (for me). I have a small container where I keep odds and ends of embellishments. I went through this stash and picked up a few things to decorate each block/letters.


after I was done with that, I added key rings to both ends and tied more ribbon on them .

And after the embellishments dried, I had a fun, easy Spring banner to decorate one of my walls with.

Here's a close up look of the banner.
