JOY Christmas Banner

One more Christmas craft that I created during my ‘craft frenzy’ – a “JOY” Christmas banner.

To create this project, I started with plain cardstock cut into triangles.  For the size pennants I used, I cut a piece of 8 1/2 X 11 cardstock into an 8 X 8 square then cut that into four equal triangles (it’s the easiest way I could think of).

I used chipboard letters to spell out the word “JOY” and added snowflakes at the beginning and end of the banner.  Because it was so long, I had a difficult time photographing this project – so here are several photos to show different levels of detail:





As you can see, I added scalloped patterned paper along the edges and various ribbons and pearls from the Stampin’ Up! Pretties Kit.  For an aged look, I covered the letters with patterned paper and sanded and inked the edges.  I also used large eyelets to reinforce the holes where the ribbon feeds through.

I think this is SO pretty…I can see hanging it either from a mirror, in a doorway or even on a mantle.

This week I’ll share some of my new card designs with you…
