Snow Banner for a Winter Mantel

snow mantel banner christmasLet it Snow….. Let it Snow!

This winter snow-lovin banner is super easy to whip up!  The background is old book pages that have been tinted with Mod Podge sheer color and the faux snow is Collage Clay.  The whole project can be made in an afternoon and it’s a perfect project for kids to get involved with.  The complete instructions can be found on our project page at Plaid.

Scrapbook Layout: Banners, Doilies and Paper Flowers

This one was so fun to make!  Little bits if this and little bits of that went into the design.  I am so smitten with blue and orange this year!

First I glued down (Hot Glue) the home banner I made for Eddie’s home coming.  You can find the full tutorial here.

The paper is Edamame by K&Co.

I glued a doily to the lower left corner of the page.  The doily was from Jo-Ann fabrics.

Of course I wore my Hot Glue Gun Helper Finger Cap!
Next, I made some journal spots with scrap cardboard.  I inked the edge with Ranger Distress Ink in Spice Marmalade.

Love the hint of color you can get by just rubbing the edge on the stamp pad.

Next, I hot glued the journal spots to paper tags and I attached them in a row.

I glued a bordered smash journal spot to the top of the doily.

I added a second tag and a small bouquet of paper flowers.  The flowers are from my supply shop.

Enjoy!
