Easter Projects - Banner

Hi there, 

I've shown you a snippet of Easter projects I've done recently, but over the next couple of days (including the weekend) I'm going to show you a lot more. 

I sooo enjoyed making all these things. All the happy, fun colours and the rabbits, kids and chicks. My kinda crafting, for sure. 

And banners, my kinda crafting too. Even if they're hard to photograph! 

Here's the banner.

Ah, so fun.

The string is blue and white baker's twine. Baker's twine always seems the best option because it gives a bit of colour, but not too much because it has white in it.

Here's the die I used.

It's a big XL one called Banner, Layered Oval Scallop (bought from Photo Continental). You can see the three layers in the pic there. I used the two biggest ones for my banner.

The thing with these dies is - I treat them like big punches, so being able to have a huge oval rocks my world.

And two scalloped ones too? Well, it's just too fab.

You'll notice the Martha Loopy border at the bottom there again. Told ya it got a work out this Easter!

I made the flags myself. The triangle is from the McGill ice cream punch that I have. I stuck it to the yellow layer and cut around it with pinking shears.

You can't really see it on the photo, but I've used the tracing tool around the cream.

Okay, you can see it here. See the little dots?

Triangle punch from ice cream punch again with Sullivans orange oval in the middle.

Remember I said that Sullivans has a yellow fish punch for the ears now?

I didn't have it when I made this, so I used the big, blue fish punch and cut it down. The pink part is the green fish punch.

Oh, cute.

This whole thing makes me totally happy.

If you'd like to see it in real life, it's on display over at Photo Continental now.

See you with more projects tomorrow!



  1. Hi Debra, You've been busy - love the easter cards - so cute. (could you please let me know when you are rescheduling the embossing class - Cathy said it was cancelled)

  2. Hi Rebecca,

    Thanks for your lovely comments about the Easter things. As for the class(es), they are all pending from me at the moment, so I can't give you any definite dates. Sorry about that. Enjoy your Easter weekend!
