2011 Banner and a GNO wrap up!


2011 is off with a bang and there’s still time to ring in the new year with a Winter banner that welcomes in the fresh start we are all excited for!
This was the fun Make and Take project we had at out Girls Night Out Event! If you missed it no fear! It’s  easy to make!
Grab your supplies:
Brown Paper: I got a HUGE roll in the painters section from Home Depot! $10 for endless projects!
Triangle template, hand made
Hole Punch
Number Stamps
Jute Twine
Cut your template on card stock and trace and cut out your 4 Triangles! Stamp your 2-0-1-1
Cut Strips of fabric approximately 1″ x 6″ long! In some of our examples we added cut tulle for a fun texture!
You’ll need a 7 foot piece of jute twine. Punch 4 holes at the tops of your triangles and thread them through leaving about 5″ of spacing between each one.
Tie one with a  single knot each piece of fabric in between each triangle!
Or you can tie them all on together making a tighter look! So cute!
Wasn’t are little set up so darling! the fabric looks so cute in my new glass jars!~
Having fun with our guest who braved the snow to come be with us for a night out at The Chocolate!
