What do you do with all those leftover colored images? Make a banner for the holiday season!!
The banner is made with several stamps from the Country Vintage Christmas stamp set by Pam Bray, watercolor pencils, some string. Other tools you will need include a hole punch, brush, Stickles, and some water.
To start this project, you will need to stamp 3 presents, 2 stockings and 2 snowmen globes from the Country Vintage Christmas stamp set. You will then color them with your choice of medium, I used watercolors. Let them dry and add Stickles to all of the pieces, set aside.
Next, cut out all of the pieces, when you are cutting out the snowglobes, just continue around the globe for a round shape.
Now you will need to decide where to punch two 1/8" holes in each piece for the string to hold them. Line up the pieces in the order that you want them to be on your banner.
Using red and white bakers twine, thread it through each hole from the front so that the string is across the back of the stamped image. The holes are small so you do not need to tie the images in place.
Finished piece is about 30 inches long and can be hung on a small tree, across a fireplace mantle, or anywhere you would like to hang your finished banner!!
