Here is a complete list of blogs:

Let’s get started with the ideas:

I found my inspiration on Pinterest:

Here is a link to Brittany's blog post.

I started with my Gypsy.

I took this tie from Simply Charmed and sized it to 2.13 width x 6.00 height.

I unlocked the chain between the words Width and Height on my basic menu.  It is yellow when locked and white when unlocked.

In order to get two of each tie plus the top half at an angle, I arranged the ties two sets on each side.

Here are the ties cut out.

The second set I did with double sided paper.

I rearranged the ties on my mat and cut out this blue patterned paper....

and this green paper.

I opened another layer and used letters from Birthday Bash at 1.35 inches to put on the ties.

For the card, I used #1 dad sized to .88 inches.  You can see how I determined the size to fit the tie on my mat.

So my grand plan was to create a shadow for the letters.  Somehow I did not use the shadow feature, so I skipped the layer!!

This is what the tie looks like with the top at a 40% angle.

I also cut a shadow tie shape.  There is no shadow feature on Simply Charmed, so I had to create my own.  I sized the tie to 2.51 width x 6.59 height and cut them out of brown cardstock.

It is not exact but I was very happy with it!

Next I copied two ties onto a new layer.  I flipped one and welded it to the top of the second one.

Hint:  I flipped and welded BEFORE I rotated them.  The ends of the tie hung off the mat, but it was much easier to line up and weld properly!!

I cut out the tie card in the same brown cardstock as the shadow layer.

I scored and folded the card and adhered the tie on top.  I inked the ties with Vintage Photo ink.

I pop-dotted the letters on each tie and used twine to string the pieces together.

I had a lot of fun creating this banner and card!
