Holiday Banner

This past Saturday, I hosted a Home Decor and Gift class in my home. The attendees were given several projects to choose from for the class, and all of them chose to do the Ho Ho Ho banner from the Holiday Mini. I can see why. It is so darn cute!

What I loved so much about this product was that it was so easy and quick to create. My banner is almost identical to the one in the catalog- I thought it was so pretty as is, and thought "why mess with a good thing?".

Some tips:
  • The banner was created using the Ho Ho Ho On Board (117613). I popped out just the large letters, and used my Crop-a-dile to make holes in the tops of each of them.
  • Elastic Silver cording was used to string the letters onto some Old Olive Grosgrain.
  • The shape elements were created using the Merry Details Sizzlit, the Jumbo Snowflake punch, and the Little Leaves Sizzlet.
  • I dotted the center of each snowflake with a Clear Rhinestone Brad. To eliminate a little bulk, I snipped off the "prongs" on the brad and simply attached it using a mini glue dot.

The glitter on this banner is a must-see. The photos do not do it justice!!

This is the first one I have seen in a blog - it looks great! I was curious about it.

That sounds like it was a fun workshop!

Similar comment as Melissa ... this is the first one I've seen "in real life" and I LOVE it.

I was just considering it over the weekend. SO PRETTY!
