Thankful share

I had hoped to have this banner completed before I shared here ... however, I am still
{im}patiently waiting on my ribbon order to arrive before I have to sprint off to work. So it looks like I need to share what I have, rather than wait for it to look all nicey-nicey.

This is the first banner I made from Stampin' Up's new On Board Holiday Greetings. There is so much chipboard in this pack!! I'm really excited over the different ways I can use up all the pieces. And, ahem, there is no stamping on this banner at all.

My plan is to run ribbon from the two top corners of each letter and let it hang over my fireplace or hutch. The papers are Designer Apple Cider {in the holiday mini} and are just delicious! The colors are yummie and I love the bolder designs.

Here is the first letter close-up so you can see the dimension of the leaf and button. I adhered the button with a mini glue dot and the leaf with dimensionals for height. I used my xyron 500 to adhere the papers to the chipboard.

The letters were simple to cut out. I used my craft knife and just went around the edges. It was actually painless ... and I'm not a big craft knife user either!

Tomorrow I hope to share the holiday banners I made. I just love them because they are ALL glittery and sparkly!!

happy stampin,

ps - watch for blog candy coming soon ... like maybe this weekend!
