Name banner

I wrote in a previous post that I had been trying lots of different things in my crafting – using chipboard was one of them.

This set of scalloped banners is from Tando Creative. There are 5 inner pieces and 5 scalloped outers in the pack.SAM_0319

I’m going to do one for each of our Grandchildren, luckily they all have short names. This is the first of those for the youngest.

SAM_0436I’ve sponged acrylic paint over the scalloped pieces and coloured the edges with Smooch ink in green. SAM_0434

The inner pieces have been covered in pretty paper from K & Co. I cut letters with my craft Robo Lite and after colouring them with Promarkers covered them in glossy accents.


I added a large flower to the first piece and lots of embellishments to the others – flowers, brads, buttons, ribbons etc., the pieces have been tied together with narrow ribbon, a ‘made with love’ charm hung from the end and braid attached to enable it to be hung.

This is so sweet. And how handy that your grandkids all have short names! :) I've always wanted to make a banner but never have. The kit looks so convenient.
