Hello H & R friends, Michelle Hill here again today to show you how to make a New year banner. I was at the point where I had to stop working on holiday and move into New Years and spring. I feel like I have been working on Christmas for months. Let’s get started on a festive banner.
You will need..H & R Wrap It Up Glassine and Gold paper..mask of your choice..glitter paper, I use wrapping paper..heavy card board (I used a box) and a piece of chipboard..mod podge..paint…glitter..ribbon..Dies of your choice, I used a tag die and pulled my star one out..also a electronic die cut machine..If you don’t have one NO worries..
Start by applying the mod podge to your thin chipboard..adhere the glitter paper to it. This gives it stability for your stars and die cutting. Roll wrap is much less expensive than glitter chipboard..
Die cut your stars using a manual die cut machine or trace and hand cut them.
Now take your card board box and paint it your base color I did black for New Years.. I LOVE using boxes for my dies cuts they end up very thick!
Die cut your tags.. You could use any shape..I just like the tags hanging upside down..
Now choose your mask font and adhere to the DRY tags..
Now using a gold paint I then added gold glitter over the wet paint. You could use a Mod Podge but I wanted to rub some of the glitter off for a shabby look and so I wanted some gold underneath.. Peel up your mask as you finish..
Adorable..Right?? so gold!! if you do not want to rub off any glitter you can seal it with hair spray..
While the glitter tags are drying I cut some 3-d diamond shapes on my Silhouette using our Glassine and Gold paper which we all know is my FAVORITE.. I use it for everything..once cut just glue them together adding a string in the center for hanging..
Now arrange onto your ribbon..I decided to staple each tag to the ribbon super fast and easy and NO sewing or punching holes.. I’ve done this on a few banners I have made..Once all stapled in place it’s ready to hang..
Yes my Christmas mantle is up.. lol.. I added the diamonds and stars to the ends and have them hanging down…. (sorry about the brightness I think my poor camera needs a tune up)
That’s it.. SUPER EASY and festive.. I hope you all will make a fun banner and make sure to share it with us!!
