They're calling for a big snowstorm mid week, but that's not stopping me from busting out my spring decor around here! I mean, we're IN March, that's good enough reason for me.
I was taking a look at my bird cage thing-a-ma-jiggy, you might remember from previous posts - the one I picked up at HomeGoods last fall? I flippin' LOVE this thing. I decided since it's so close to my gallery wall, that I wouldn't use it for photos, but seasonal tags. I made these little tags for last November...
So yesterday, I dug out my scraps of leftover scrapbook paper, picked the happiest/spring-iest ones in the stash and decided to go a banner route, rather than my typical square shaped tags. Even if you don't have a bird cage hanging thingy (I really need to come up with a better name for this thing!), you could use this idea to make a banner for your mantel, a buffet table, anything.
It's super easy to make. First, think of what you want the banner to say. Then cut triangles out of the scrapbook paper, all the same size, of however many letters your saying contains. Then I cut slightly smaller triangles out of the linen.
Then I used my Martha Stewart stencils from Michaels. They're small enough for this project, and I like the font.
Lift the stencil up quickly, and you're done!
