Each section is tied together with a 7" length of double knotted 1/4" Very Vanilla Grosgrain ribbon through the pewter extra large eyelets. Each Alphabet is glues to a scrap piece of mat board, then cut using the Big Shot.
"V", "E", and end:
Plastic snowflakes randomly attached. They were originally from a garland which was cut apart (I believe this was purchased from a local drug store after the holidays). Then emboss the stocking and the contrast , too to give this image some character. The poinsettia is from my stash - not sure where it is from. Use the 5/8" Organdy ribbon tucked under the poinsettia with a mini glue dot. The entire stocking is popped with dimensionals. The felt adhesive penguin is also popped with dimensionals.
Randomly attach gold snowflake confetti (you know the ones: you get them anywhere for parties and they come hundred to a small bag!) using mini glue dots on the tree. Those babbles: they are shades of red dew drops also randomly attached with mini glue dots. Pop the tree with dimensionals. The star on top of the tree....not sure where I got those but I have a bin full so I better use them. "Friends" acetate metal rimmed tag is from my stash (I prob got this on a clearance bin somewhere). The baker's twine finishes off the look on top of the metal tag.............
Plastic snowflakes and gold confetti snowflakes randomly attached. The ornament is embossed with a snowflake background and popped with dimensionals. A metallic gold ornament top is cut and crimped. The gold tie: found that in my stash of left over ribbon (probably from a present years ago!!!!). Any edge punch will work on this image: I happen to use ones I have on hand that needed some attention.
And here is the stocking with a letter:
This is what I started with: a packet of 8 A2 note cards with envelopes with 3 shaped images. Cut the shaped note cards at the fold line to get the opposite image. In order to co-ordinate the colors within this banner, the tree was cut up and used for the stocking. To make this banner:
(4) trees = 2 note cards
(3) stockings = 1-1/2 note cards
(20 ornaments = 1 note card
+ 1-1/2 tree note card to make the stocking
total 6 note cards used...................the BEST part? these were in the $1 bin at your local famous craft store!!! so the major part of this banner was very economical!!!
AND, those felt adhesive penguins? They are 1-1/2" x 2" We'll, they were $1.39/16 of them from your local craft store.................$ .09/pc!!!! Cool, eh!!! Works for me!!!
No step by step today....................this project is free style...........and do "use what you have on hand" - outside purchases very minimal.................even recycle products used.....sigh...........I like it!
