Hi Everyone – I have another Little Yellow Bicycle project to share today.
**Please note that the giveaway previouly listed here has now closed – and was won by Melissa Frank. Details here.**
Back to School Banner
I was totally inspired to make this banner after constantly admiring the fabulous work of Cassie Box
. If you haven’t seen her blog you really should check it out! It’s packed full of fun party ideas and the most wonderful banners you have ever seen!
I made this banner for my son’s classroom. One thing I discovered is that banners are so much fun to make – but really hard to photograph!
I have kept the decoration simple to let the great colors stand out, and on the end pennants I have added pieces from the Clear Cut Shapes and made some mini flags with the Stick Pins and a piece from the Canvas Stickers Borders.
Each “flag” of the banner consists of two triangles with a star, rosette and letter mounted on top with dimensional tape. It’s a project that can be adapted to any occasion and to any size.
I have used 3d mounting tape to add some dimension to the elements of the banner which really help them stand out.
It really was a challenge to photograph this piece – but I am sure it is going to look great in the entrance of my son’s classroom!
Check back tomorrow for another project using this great collection
