Fall Banner for DCC

Happy Friday! 

Today I am sharing the Fall Banner I created for my monthly tutorial for the September edition of Die Cut Crazy Magazine. I enjoy making banners for the various holidays. This one is a gift for a friend.


Here are the dies I used:


Each piece of the banner was cut three times-twice with paper/card stock and once with cardboard (I used cereal boxes). The paper/card stock die cuts were glued front and back to the cardboard die cuts. All pieces were then sponged.

Here are all the pieces stacked and ready to be assembled:


All pieces were layered using dimensionals. Here are close-ups of each section:





When all the banner sections were finished, I used a Crop-a-Dile for the holes and to set the eyelets, then ran my ribbon through. (Note: when making banners, once I have the ribbon through and each piece of the banner evenly spaced, I put a piece of Sticky Strip on the ribbon to secure it to the back of each section and keep it from moving around on the ribbon.)

As this banner is a gift, I also made a box for it (this is a bonus you are seeing here as I didn't have the box ready in time for the submission deadline).




Thanks for stopping by!

What a fantastic gift for your friend, Lisa! I love the thought you put into each panel, and the box they are stored in is just as cute as the project itself!
