Paper Pumpkin Scraps Banner

Another lake weekend, and another Paper Pumpkin project ;)

Over Labor Day weekend those tags were just begging me to create a banner. I had it all figured out in my head- I would use the left over tags from the April kit and the leftover letters and starbursts from the February bag kit. But now what to write on it...

Well, the colors looked so cool and snowy to me that I figured a winter saying would fit perfectly. And we had just enough spots for "Baby it's Cold" (this left me singing the Sinatra song all weekend of course, LOL!).

Don't you just love it! It is hard to get a long picture of it all at once, so here it is folded up a bit:

I just love the way the chevron stamp from the April kit looks with the stripes from February.

I 'sponged' the edges of the tag using a cotton ball. Although I was able to achieve the look, I must warn you- DON'T sponge with a cotton ball! It was not an easy process and my fingers turned all blue :)  After that endeavor I was going to leave the edges of the circles alone, but my mom managed to find a bit of sponge to use 'for real.' Then she helped me out by finishing off the circles while I assembled.

Of course we couldn't leave all the little hearts unused, so we scattered them across the banner too. I love how the color accents the blues and greens, and it gives it a good lovey dovey feel to go with the song lyrics :)

Hope you enjoyed the banner today. Flutterby again soon!

Pin It!
