Christmas Stocking Banner

Happy Thursday!

Today I have a Christmas Banner to share.  Wolfgang asked me to make a gift for a couple that we know, so this is what I came up with:

I personalized it across the top, added the first names to the stockings on the ends, and spelled-out Noel in the middle.

Here are some close up pics:

Of course a gift needs a box:

In order for the banner to easily be taken out, I made an explosion-type box.

Supplies used:

Stockings - Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, and Red Glimmer CS, CTMH, Colorbok, and MME PP, White Self-Adhesive Felt, EKSuccess Snowflake Punch, Sizzix Lollipop Alphabet and Snowflake Dies, Spellbinders 2010 Heirloom Ornament and 2010 Holiday Tree Dies, SU Stocking Punch and Die, Rhinestones, Stickles, and 1/4 Grosgrain Ribbon (I ordered it on-line and it is a great match to Cherry Cobbler!).

Box - Bazzill CS (didn't have enough AA and CC with me), CTMH and Karen Foster PP, Sizzix Star Die, Spellbinders 2010 Holiday Tree and 2011 Heirloom Ornament Dies, and Stickles.

I will be entering this Christmas Banner in the following challenges:
