I am glad you stopped by.....today I want to share a little banner I made....
I got the idea while playing a match game with the grands.
The match game was on a great site I subscribe to, www.thetoymaker.com. If you have any children in your life, you should check out this site. Marilyn shares beautiful things.....some are free and some are to purchase.
I get monthly e-mails that include colorful activities, many of which are seasonal.
I am really glad I took a moment to study the playing pieces of that Halloween match game.....they were so colorful and fun to look at, that I decided to print off another set to craft with!
Hmmm, I wondered what to make......I decided on a banner!
Let's jump right in.....and start with these great little cards.....
I cut the individual flags for the banner from seasonal paper.
A punched edge is nice on a banner, so punch, punch.....a cute little scalloped edge for each flag.
Choose a Halloween design that looks good on each flag and glue each one on...I used rubber cement.
I tied some little bows and added them to three of the flags.....then I used hot glue to attach each flag to baker's twine. I always leave long ends to ensure easy hanging.
This is where my new little banner will live this year!

Doesn't Halloween need a banner at your house, too?
