Give Thanks Banner


As a way of thanking her wonderful and supportive fans, Jinger Adams has created an adorable free printable banner!  I'm just getting into using printables, and they do make crafting very easy!  There are two different sized banners to download, and today my friend Liz from Liz's Paper Loft and I are sharing them!  Stop by Liz's blog to see the large banner; what I am showcasing is the small one.


I opened the banner in Silhouette Studio, created cut lines, and was then able to create larger triangles for a background and little scallops for the top!  I cut these with Papertrey Ink cardstock to make the banner nice and sturdy.


After adhering together all of the pieces, I punched holes at the top and ran some hemp from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique through the banner pieces and the buttons that I put in between each piece.  I then added some cute little leaves cut with a die from My Creative Time's Piles of Smiles.  Bows tied with kraft thick hemp twine from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique finished it off!


Now, be sure to head over to Jinger Adams' blog to see where you can download your free banner and then link up the project you create with it!  We're going to have some fun prizes and giveaways!
