Hello FJ friends!
When I saw all the little die cut pieces in the gorgeous Sarah Kit this month, I immediately thought they’d make a cute banner, so I went ahead and created a layout with a banner as the feature of the page.
I started out with white cardstock as the background, added yellow photo corners to the photo then cut a journaling card from a previous kit into a tag shape. I punched a hole reinforcer piece from the blue floral paper, then added machine stitching and twine to the tag. Once the photo and tag were adhered into place, I stamped the ‘happy’ word from the Sarah stamp set onto plain white cardstock, fussy cut around it and layered it across the bottom of the tag.
The banner was so much fun to put together! I chose the mint heart, some tiny banner flags, a word label and circular piece, then punched a tiny hole in each so they could be threaded onto a long piece of twine from my stash. I also added a mint mini-wide paper clip, then made a little tag from scrap white cardstock with numbers from the mint puffy alphabet stickers for the banner as well. The twine was stapled into place and I used thin foam dots to hold each piece into place. A floral die cut with messy thread underneath was then added to the bottom left of the photo to finish it off.
Under the banner I used a phrase from the Sarah stamp set and added a yellow label for the date. Stitching was added to the date label along with some yellow flexible epoxy dots. Patterned paper strips were stitched onto the bottom of the page, then I roughed up the edges a little for added texture.
If you’d like to watch how I put it all together you can see the details in the video below…
Have you ever made your own banner for a project before? It’s a great way to add interest and texture to the page, and the possibilities are endless! Why not give it a try?
Thank you for joining me on the blog today! See you again soon!
