I love it when I find pretty things! And the other day, I found lots and lots of pretty things! And they inspired me to create something beautiful! So today I am really excited to share a really fun Inspirational Banner that I created using some fun items from Jen Hadfield's Home + Made line of craft products! I really love how simple this was to create and how beautiful it is hanging in my home! I love how inspiring it is!
I can't tell you how thrilled I was to receive a big box full of her beautiful goodies a while ago! The colors, textures and designs are simply to-die-for! They were so inspiring and I couldn't wait to begin crafting!
But there were a few items that really caught my eye! I immediately fell in love with these gold clips and this beautiful inspirational paper!
How could you not love those!? They are amazing! As I thought about how I could incorporate them into my home I realized that this would make a really cute inspirational banner! I just love banners! And I am really happy with how this one turned out!
I haven't decided yet if this will go in my new Craft Room or maybe in my little girl's room. But for now I am really enjoying this!
To create this banner, you will need:
- Sweet Greetings Paper
- Dotted Blossoms Paper
- Gold Metal Clips
- White and Gold Baker's Twine (or similar)
- Paper Cutter
I began by using my paper cutter to cut out three of my favorite quotes from the sweet greetings paper.
Next I cut four rectangles of the same size out of the dotted blossoms paper.
Then I cut a little triangle out of the bottom of each of these to make the dotted blossom paper into a cute flag shape!
I hung my baker's twine up and used the gold clips to secure the quotes and flower paper flags to the twine!
And it is really that simple!
And here are a few close-up photos of the banner too!
I simply love how this turned out!
