Banners...More Than Just Party Decor!

If you follow my blog, it's no secret that I LOVE Banners.  I make quite a few of them, for lots of different occasions and holidays.  And I LOVE the Stampin' Up! banner kits.  There are actually 3 of them...a chalkboard one, a canvas one, and this Kraft pennant one.  I LOVE them all and have found MANY uses for all of them.  They make things SO easy!  Today I am sharing a Home Decor piece I made with a few of the pennants in the "Celebrations Basics Kit."  (SUPER BONUS:  This kit is a Weekly Deal this week!  Head to my website to order one (or more!!) www.ashleyvancamp.stampinup.net. This was actually the make and take I put together for the big Convention party my friend and I threw this summer.  I posted about it HERE.  Off with the chatting and on to the showing...


So, here is the project!  It's a fun one.  Let me explain just a bit...there are three pennants: a birthday, a Christmas, and an everyday pennant.  (Would loved to have make more...but we only had so much time to make a project at the party.  :-) )  All you do is just frame a piece of Designer Series Paper in a 8x10 frame and then hot glue a mini clothespin to the frame. Then you easily switch our your different occasion pennants depending on what you need a the time.  Genius, right?!  :)  Here is a pic of the frame...

And then the other pennants...



Here is another genius move (if I do say so myself)... Just adhered a cello bag to the back of the frame to hold the other pennants when not in use...


I LOVE this project!  And finally sharing this reminds me I want to make more pennants for other holidays and occasions!  So stay tuned for more!  :-)

Hope you enjoy!  Let me know if you have any other questions! designwithink@gmail.com
