Happy Weekend!!! I hope everyone has some good plans this weekend. I was lucky enough last weekend to sit and enjoy some crafting. So, I went ahead and made this week's project for the Sisters In Stamping - a holiday banner.
I pulled some frames I bought at the dollar store years ago and decided to cover them with Be Merry designer paper. I love this paper!!!! I then used matching colored cardstock (Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler) to die cut the letters for JOY. I also pulled out my bell, holly, and small bow punches and punched out shapes in matching colors. I die cut the stocking from the same designer paper. I then threaded the Cherry Cobbler double stitched ribbon through the back of each frame, adhered the ribbon, and I was done :)
Sorry this isn't such a good picture, but you can see the finished product. The bell on the "J" frame is cut off a little. I punched the bell from one of the designer papers, put a small bow from the holly punch on it and punched out a piece of Shimmery White from the holly punch for the round piece. I also used Shimmery White for the top of the stocking on the "O".
Thanks so much for looking and have a wonderful day and weekend!
