Paper Girls Challenge Blog - September Hop

Thanks so much for stopping by, if you are here for the Paper Girls Challenge Blog you should have come from Charissa's blog. If you didn't come from there when you're done looking around you should definitely head back to the beginning and see all the fantastic fall home decor projects we have for you today. Serious inspiration over load here!



I made this fall banner. Obviously something 7 feet long is hard to get into a single image so I also have some close-ups for you!

There's lots of goodies in here, twine, upcycled corrugated cardboard, thrifted doilies, ribbons, Prima and David Tutera flowers, and Authentique Thankful papers to name a few. Check it out:


I cut the letters out on my Silhouette and made a slightly larger one to act as the "shadow" since the machine doesn't have that function.


The spots were created by inking through joint tape (like you'd find at the hardware store). 



Had to hot glue on the flowers to the doilies. It nearly broke my heart since it means I may have ruined them, but it just looks so pretty that I had to commit.

    1. Thanks Brittany, you know it really didn't take that long even, part of an afternoon. The hardest part was stringing that twine through because it kept unraveling - which leant a nice look in the end but was difficult to work with.
