Summer Banner

I love all the little banners that Kelly Lunceford makes for each season/holiday.  I have the perfect spot in my craft room (aka Happy Room) to hang such banners.  So I've been busy making banners for the holidays, just trying to get a jump start on things.  I just hung my summer banner since Memorial Day is this weekend and that usually jump starts the summer season.

I have so much patterned paper I figured this was a good way to use up some of it since I'm not a scrapper.

The paper I used is from My Mind's Eye, the yellow crepe paper I bought in a roll at the dollar store.  I thought it kinda looks like the sun behind the letters.  Speaking of the letters, I bought a pack of these white shimmer chipboard letters for $1.00 at Target.

I die cut a couple of butterflies from felt and added little rhinestones to them, attached some buttons and added some white crepe paper on the tops of each panel.

It's kind of hard to see but I did add some glitter to the tops of the panels as well.    So now I've got my summer, fall, halloween and thanksgiving banners completed and I'm off to work on my Christmas, winter and valentine banners. I know you all probably think I'm crazy to be so far ahead but I've got so many other projects on my list I wanted to get these out of the way.

Thanks for stopping by!
