*Create* Banner

I have been slowing working on a new banner to hang in my craft room.  I purchased a little pack of paper by K & Company with matching chipboard letters.  I was drawn to the soft tones and designs of the paper and thought the colors would look good in my happy room.

You will not find any glitter on this project.  I wanted it to have a more soft vintage look to it.

I used a Fiskars border punch for the accordian medallions and destressed them using some Chamomile ink from PTI.  I did some zigzag stitching and added some lace trim at the top of each pendant.

There are some bits of felt as well as buttons.  The most time consuming part of this project was making all the medallions.  I love how it looks in my craft room.  This one will being hanging up till Labor Day then I'll  bring out the autumn one I made.  I'll share that one with you at a later date. 



  1. How beautiful! The paper looks like calico cloth in the picture. What patience you have to decorate your craft room.

  2. I can't even begin to tell you how beautiful this is! I can tell so much work went into this! Gorgeous!
