I wanted to show you the banner I made from the recent freebie from Close to My Heart: the mini-banner.
All the cuts are from the Art Philosophy cartridge. I guess they made the mini banner to coordinate with the cartridge. It went together pretty easily once I figured out the size I needed to cut everything. The patterned paper for the banner pieces are cut at 4 inches and the letters and stars at 2 inches. The paper is also CTMH, called Fanfare. And that yummy twine is from Trendy Twine. The ribbons and buttons are from Michaels.
I think it turned out great! And there’s a surprise on the back. You could really only hang a Fourth of July banner for about two weeks out of the year, so . . .
I made something a little more generic for the back of the banner. I couldn't let it go to waste! The primary colors look good together, and now I have a banner I can use for any occasion as well as something for Independence Day!
I hope you come visit me at My Little Craft Blog! and if you don't already have Art Philosophy, or Artiste, or need any other scrapbooking supplies, I would be glad to help you. You can view the online CTMH catalog here.
