This is a project that I previously shared over on the Pebbles Inc Blog.
Have you ever had a line of paper, that is just so pretty, but you just aren’t sure how you are going to use it? That is how I felt about this Home + Made Cottage Living Collection from Jen Hadfield of Tatertots & Jello. It is so pretty, I could look at it all day long, but I wasn’t sure what I wanted to make with it. Well, I ended up making this Happy Decor Board, and guess what, I do get to look at it quite often. I have it hanging in my creative space.
The Home + Made line has several different elements that go along with them. One of the fun things are these Alphabet Banner pieces. I started out by trimming them down to the size I wanted.
I trimmed them to be about 2” x 3 7/8”, trimming some off of all sides.
I picked out some patterned papers from the 6” x 6” Cottage Living paper pad and trimmed them to be 3” x 4 1/2”. See, isn’t this paper SO pretty?!
Using the Oversized Gold Paperclips I attached the patterned paper and alphabet banner pieces together.
Using my Cuttlebug, the die for the Polaroid frame and some white cardstock, I cut out five frames.
Then I sprayed the frames with the gold glitter spray. You guys! This stuff is amazing! It is so fun to add a little glam to whatever you are working on.
Next, I attached the gold sprayed frames to the back of my alphabet banner and patterned paper pieces.
Now you are ready to attach them to a board. I grabbed a board that I had on hand and stained it. Then I used adhesive to adhere my pieces right to the board. I love the way the stained board looks behind the letters.
Isn’t the glitter spray so fun?!
What kind of fun phrase would you make with your alphabet banner pieces?Linking up to some of these parties.
