Christmas is such a special time and I had a ton of fun putting this banner together thinking about all the different types of people in their cozy little houses and apartments. Singing “Joy to the World” with a smile on my face. It defiantly got me into the holiday spirit.
I loved the way these Authentique Joy to the World Banner turned out. Put one together yourself to start your holiday season with a smile on your face.
Authentique Paper Three Christmases Paper Stack (exclusive to Craft Warehouse stores!)
Jen Hadfield Gold Letter Stickers
SPC Jute Ribbon
Hazel and Ruby Sequins
Paper Accents Chipboard Pennants
Darice Trims Gold
Marvy Snow Maker
Cover the Pennants: Cover the pennants with Authentique paper making sure to glue paper down close to the edges of the pennant. Then cut a strip of Vellum 3 ½ inches and glue it to the top of the pennant and cut it to the same shape as the pennant.
Cut Snowdrifts: Cut some white card stock into 5×6″ pieces and then cut them from corner to corner creating a abstract triangle. This gives you the perfect angle to glue into the point of your pennant. Hand cut the tops of the snowdrifts to make every drift look different. Carefully outline your snowdrifts with Stickles.
Make Trees and Houses: Hand cut small houses, trees and buildings. Add Marvy Snow Maker ink to the tops of the buildings and trees. Heat to make the snow puff up.
Assemble the Pennants: Glue down the snow drifts leaving a small border around the pennant to see the pattern paper. Using the Jen Hadfield Letter stickers and the Darice Stickerz spell out “Joy to the World”. Slip small houses and trees under the snow drifts and using the Marvy Snow Maker add snow to the vellum.
Hang the Pennants: String the assembled pennants onto the SPC Jute Ribbon. Tie Darice Gold Trim, twine, and SPC Jute Ribbon between the pennants.
