I love touchy, feely things and wanted to create a project I could use both as a decoration and a gift. This little banner fits the bill. The gold Embossing Powder works so well combined with the texture of the corrugated cardboard. You can easily personalize this by adding a name or sentiment to the chipboard scrap.
Time: 60 minutes
Cut a banner shape from a cardboard box flap. Tear off top layers to reveal corrugated inside. Paint front and back of banner with gesso and let dry.
Rub VersaMark pad across the front of the banner. Emboss with Gold Embossing Powder. Repeat as needed.
Using a DoodleStix – apply Golden Glitz and Silvery Shimmer Delicata in the creases of the banner.
Using a foam brush and Modpodge add glitter to the banner. Repeat as needed. Set aside to dry. Use a DoodleStix to apply Golden Glitz Delicata to pink tulle ribbon.
Spray Angel Pink Fireworks! to white doily and gold and white ribbon.
Rub Golden Glitz and Silvery Shimmer Delicata onto glitter tipped white feather and chipboard banner scrap.
Rub VersaMark onto chipboard scrap. Emboss with Gold Embossing Powder.
Now most of the inking is finished, it’s time to assemble the whole design. Layer the feather and small gold banner scrap. Add a loop of gold metallic thread, pink tulle ribbon, silver pipe cleaner, gold and white tulle, pink floss, bells, metallic thread, bows, gold metallic thread, and flowers. If needed, layer dried banner under a stack of books to flatten. This banner can be re-created in multiple sizes, and colors, to fit any occasion.
