Banners can easily set the mood for any celebration, and Christmas is no exception. I know folks say that it is a bit too early to be thinking about Christmas decorations (my boy being one of them, haha), but as a crafter it is important to start early so everything is ready on time. But the nice thing is, not everything handmade has to be complicated or time consuming! Most of the prettiest things take only a few minutes to create. This banner is a great example of this type of quick-and-easy project.
These banner pennants were probably the most difficult part of this project, and could easily be changed to a dovetail or other simple shape. The rest was stamped, cut out with framelits in the Big Shot, and layered with dimensionals.
To add some color, I watercolored the reindeer and used markers highlight portions of each image. I used Real Red in each pennant to enhance the Red Mini Tinsel Trim. The Mini Black Sequin Trim plays well off the Merry Music Specialty DSP too.
Here is a close-up of the middle pennant featuring an image from the Merry Little Labels stamp set. This is just another example of a great stamp set meant to help you create fabulous gift tags.
