Tiny Banner Challenge!

** Updated with... Celine's "Tiny Banner" page! **


I love love LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE how artsy and unique and totally creative Celine's work is! And a pom-pom trim tiny banner....?!?? GENIUS!!!! :)

***********************

Hi Guys! Susan here with my first post for the SC blog... & first challenge! Woohoo :)

I have been obsessed with pennant banners for a while now. Really, who hasn't?! Whether made of paper, felt, or fabric - they are so cute & adorable and add a festive touch to any decor. And so, the super-talented Celine (who will be hosting the blog with me this week!) came up with the idea for our "little challenge" this week...

Add a Tiny Banner to your Layout!!!

Can I tell you how much I LOVE this challenge?! Here is my page...



I punched out triangles from both solid cardstock & also from cardstock that I had misted for my title banner, and then added Studio Calico Homefront letter stickers. I machine stitched through the top of the "banner" and left the ends of the thread hanging (instead of trimming it like I normally would).

We would love to see you try to use a Tiny Banner on your page too! Doesn't have to be a pennant style banner (but it could be!) - really just whatever type of banner inspires you... You have until Saturday night at midnight PST to enter this challenge... the (random) winner will be awarded a $5 gift card to the Studio Calico shop!

Here's mine. It took for-freaking-ever to tie the fibers between the pennants

not a traditional banner, but I like the idea of tiny dangling elements on the page....

Here is mine

It is hard to tell but I used a craft knife to cut out the banner and lift it off the page. Got the idea from one of the layouts in the DT gallery.

I finally braved making a banner! Will definitely do it again.
