Larger Than Life Technicolor Burlap Banner

by Jessica Litman

Spring fever has definitely sprung with crafting inspiration blogs going wild on the Internet. I have joined the craft craze with this burlap and die cut banner which is perfect to add bright inky colors and floral texture accents to any room in the home. Turn this tutorial into a wall hang, an Easter decoration or make multiple flag pieces for a giant banner.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 30 minutes

Directions

Step 1

Cut out the floral template from the Silhouette paper cutter. Place the die on the Imagine craft mat. Using the Memento Dew Drop ink pads in Angel Pink, Rose Bud, and Dandelion, cover the floral template with the textured stamps.

Step 2

Lay down another round of stamping and color with Cottage Ivy Memento.

Step 3

Finish the ink layering with Danube Blue Memento which ties together with all the other colors nicely.

Step 4

Using Amplify, add dots to the center of the flowers and to the circle ends of the leafy looking parts (and of course wherever else you see fit). Activate Amplify’s foamy texture quality with a heat tool. Much like embossing powder, you will know visually when the heat is working with Amplify. It’s so fun watching it foam up!

Step 5

Cut a piece of white card stock into a rectangle. Rub the Danube Blue Dew Drop on the edges of the card stock. Write a message or sentiment on the card stock using Memento marker.

Step 6

Fold burlap in half. Cut out a triangle at the bottom to make the flag banner shape. Attach the floral template to the burlap using the decorative brads. Attach card stock to inside the floral template on the burlap using safety pins. Hang on the wall and enjoy!
