Pause Dream Enjoy Linky Party with My Paper Craze

 

Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, let’s take a look at Pause Dream Enjoy and what they have going on this week! The theme for this linky party is {BANNERS}! I can’t wait to check it out for myself, but first, here’s our project for the week!

Whimisical Peppermint Banner by My Paper Craze

I’m so excited to be getting a head start on my Christmas decorations this year.  I’ve decided to go with a whimsical theme for this season and I plan on hanging this banner on the wall behind the kid’s table.  It was so quick and easy to put together and will go perfectly with the table decor I have planned.

 

Supplies:

White card stock

Red glitter card stock

Red ribbon

Hot glue gun and glue sticks

Double sided adhesive

Plastic wrap

Silhouette cutting machine

Silhouette studio designs #65572 and #50832

 

The designs for my banner only consist of two layers.  I cut the base out of white card stock and the top layers out of red glitter cardstock.  I attached the red pieces with double sided tape.  I then used hot glue to attach the peppermint candies, candy cane and bows to the ribbon.  I decided to attach the plastic wrap to the peppermint candies last so that I didn’t melt it with the glue gun.  A little ribbon to gather the plastic wrap to look like candy wrappers and it was done.
