On the 11th day of Christmas, my project gave to me ~ 11 Banner Flags!!!
I chose a non-traditional banner for this layout and had a lot of fun creating it!! I challenge you to use a banner with 11 flags on your project - or as a project!! You can use one banner or more with a total of 11 flags. Banner flags can be made out of any shape so be sure to have fun!!
I chose to use banner flags shaped like ornaments, not the traditional flag shapes for this layout. I was inspired by a layout I saw on Pinterest!
I cut this doily shape from CTMH Artiste sized to 6 inches. I cut it out of maroon cardstock.
I used Peace from MS Seasonal Cake Art and sized it to 1.35 inches. I cut it out of hunter green metallic paper.
I used a variety of cartridges and sizes to cut out ornaments. I used CTMH Art Philosophy, Holiday Cakes, MS Seasonal Cakes, George (star) and (CCR)Teresa Collins - Christmas Ornaments.
The sizes range from 1 inch to 2.5 inches.
I cut the ornaments out of solid maroon or green cardstock and some Christmas paper.
I used some cuttlebug embossing folders to dry emboss some of the ornaments and the photo mat.
I inked the edges with Vintage Photo ink. I ran the ink over the embossing too.
I used thin ribbon to string my banner together.
The yellow star was a little bright, so I inked it up to dull it down.
I used my new square punch from Epiphany Crafts to cut out this paper square.
I put the square in the coordinating charm and put a Bubble Cap on top. I tied a ribbon on the top and added this charm to my layout.
When my youngest was born, I got a photo of my three boys' hands layered together....well, the baby was only 2 weeks old and would only make a fist. He is grabbing my middle son's pinky in the first photo. The boys wanted to re-do the photo when Tanner was older and this is the result.
My boys are now 22, 17 and 7 and this is one of my favorite pictures!!
Ironically, there is little "peace" when they are all here as they are typical boys :)
