Something Old, Something New: The Banner

Last Wednesday, I posted a peek at a banner that I was working on using some new and some retired product. Thanks to Kelly Lunceford for her inspiration ...I am hooked! This project takes a little time but, to me, so worth the effort!

This banner was created for a charity auction that will be held December at a local hospital where my daughter is a nurse. Each department decorates a themed tree and I thought this banner made with the Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper would be a perfect accessory for the tree she and her friends were putting together.

The "old" : Hodgepodge Hardware tag, gold elastic cording

The "new":
Stamps: Bells and Boughs(clear), (wood)
Paper: Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper , Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla card stock, Waffle Paper Assortment 1
Ink: Always Artichoke Stampin' Write Marker
Accessories: Big Shot, Simple Letters Bigz Dies, Big Designer Buttons -Deck the Halls, Antique Brads, Champagne Glass Glitter,Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Mini Glue Dots, Sticky Strip, hot glue gun

I have another banner ready that I'll post soon. For now, I'll leave you with a question...if you decorate for the holidays, when do you start? Leave a post here in the comment section.

Right after Thanksgiving, or when we get back from all of the Thanksgiving festivities.

The banner is really neat! How big are the flags?
