This week is Spring Break for Laura and I! Yay! We don't have any big plans. Just relaxing and going shopping. :) (and of course crafting!) I still have to work Tuesday, Thursday, and a whole day on Friday, but it will be ok. It will be so awesome knowing I don't have any college work to do! I worked my tail off last week getting things finished before Spring Break, so I'm more than ready for this time off. After I get back, though, I will only have 5 weeks left of this semester! :O My, how time flies. I'm excited.
So in celebration of Spring, I made this simple little banner to hang in our kitchen. Originally I was going to make some flowers to hang in my room somewhere, but then mom asked me to make a banner for the kitchen and, well, I couldn't tell her no.
I used a burlap banner from Crate Paper that I got in my Craft Market prize box. Then I embellished it with some handmade flowers. I used some dies that I have had for a while along with my Cuttlebug to make each flower. I just love the dimension the hand rolled flowers gives!
(I actually couldn't get a shot of the entire banner in one photo because I was using my 50mm fixed lens and we were on the deck. :/ Oh well, this is most of it.)
I just grabbed some papers from my stash for the flowers. Nothing too special, just some colors and patterns that I thought would be pretty made into flowers and butterflies.
I used hot glue for making and attaching the flowers and butterflies. I have decided that hot glue is my best friend when it comes to adhering something permanently.
So there you go! A simple and fast banner. I mean, I'm pretty sure this took me, like, and hour to make. Have a fabulous week! :) I know I will!
