Welcome Banner

Today I am featured at The Buckle Boutique BLOG!!!

I made a vertical burlap banner that was supposed to be displayed at CHA in The Buckle Boutique booth.  Unfortunately, I mailed it to the hotel and they returned it to me.  So I will have to display it at my house!

I love burlap with a bit of bling and this was a perfect time to use both together!!
I cut burlap squares 4 x 4 1/4".  I measured the letters to fit the squares and designed them on my Silhouette program.  I cut them out in vinyl to use as stencils.

I painted the letters with black acrylic paint and peeled off the vinyl when it was dry.
Next I inked the burlap with some vintage photo ink.
I cut strips of Rhinestone Self-Adhesive Sticker Sheets (found HERE) for the edges of the banner squares.
I cut a diamond for the "o" to look like a wedding ring.  The Buckle Boutique also sells wedding trims, buckles and slides so I wanted to embrace that!  I trimmed the sticker sheet to resemble a diamond!
I used Beacon's 527 Adhesive to glue cardstock to the back of the banner squares as well as glue the ribbon to the back of the banner squares to hold the banner together.

Here is a close up of the ring!
I left the bottom of the ribbon a little long and it can be trimmed if needed.

I have made a lot of banners, but this is my first vertical banner!

It's a beautiful banner and the ring paid a nice homage to the Buckle Boutique store, it's a shame it didn't make it to CHA!!
