Summer is here and it's time for garden parties, picnics, and outdoor Bar-B-Q's!
Bo Bunny's "Garden Journal I want it All Bundle" by FotoBella?
This Banner came to be as a result of a contest I held with the members of my awesome swap group Chic Craftique!
|Just look at all the wonderful products you can get|
|In the Garden Journal "I want it All! Bundle" by FotoBella|
|Additional products from Bo Bunny|
"What would YOU create if you could use all these awesome products?"
I received a lot of really great ideas and the winning idea was by Julie Monroe, who suggested making a summertime BANNER! This banner was made using the Garden Journal "I want it All!" Bundle plus a few other supplies from Bo Bunny and FotoBella.
Note: To purchase any or all of these supplies just click on the highlighted word and it will link you to the website!
Now, on to the BANNER!
|The first flag I made was the centerpiece. I used a bird image from the paper collection, fussy-cut it out, and painted it with Bo Bunny's Glitter Paste. |
It just shimmers!
The left photo shows the FLORET I made using my own scoring board and bone folder. (Please refer to the tutorial on the FotoBella Blog from May 26th) The right photo shows a bit better the sparkle and shine of the Bo Bunny Glitter Paste. I also used it on the Laser-cut Butterflies! SO Pretty!
|On each side of the center pennant I hung a flag. Chipboard sentiments from the Bundle and more florets embellish the flags. I embellished the butterflies with bling from the Bundle.|
Above you can see how very shiny and glitzy the glitter makes the butterflies! Two doilies hang at the bottom of the flags.
|Another pennant and flag embellished with florets, doilies, chipboard sentiments and butterflies.|

|Close-up of Pennant|
|I decorated the outer pennants with chipboard swirls, which I cut in half, then adhered to each. Doilies and florets complete the look. Each pennant featured a bird, and each flag a butterfly.|
|This is a close-up of one of the 2 end flags. They were slightly more narrow than the flags in the center.|
|Here you can see the other pennant, where I used the other chipboard swirl, again cutting it in half and adhering. Instead of a large floret I made a fan and a small floret and placed a glitter-painted bird on top.|
Here are two close-ups of the pennant. Love that Glitter Paste!
|This Banner is so pretty and will be perfect for any outdoor venue! Try making one yourself! It's fun!|
Until next time, Happy Creating!
