You’ll need the following supplies:
- Christmas Magic kit by Karen Funk
- D-cuts Pendants + Banners kit by Deena Rutter
- Font: Rage
- 1 sheet of matte presentation paper or white 8 1/2 x 11″ cardstock
- pop dot adhesive
- black distress ink
- black marker
- hole punch
- red eyelets
- eyelet setter
- Stickles (glitter glue)
Step 1: Open a new 8.5 x 11″ file. Add three triangles to serve as clipping masks for the pendants. I rotated one to fit on the sheet of paper for ease of printing. Add three scalloped circles from the D-cuts Pendants + Banners kit. I’m going to use the word “JOY” so I only used three of each. If you want to use a different word, you may need an additional page for the extra pendants and circles.
Step 2: Add your desired papers from the Christmas Magic kit and clip to the shapes. Add glitter and snowflake banner to the pendants.
Step 3: Add red frames, positioning so they will fit on the page. Clip papers in the open space behind the frames.
Step 4: Type one letter centered in each frame. I used the font Rage in red. Since the “O” is not as ornate as the other letters, I placed the sparkle tree behind it.
Step 5: Print onto matte presentation paper or white cardstock and cut out the shapes. I left a thin white border around the red frames to preserve their detail.
Step 6: Ink the edges with black distress ink. For the tight areas, use a marker to carefully ink the edges.
Step 7: Punch holes in the top corners of the pendant and insert eyelets to reinforce the holes.
Step 8: Assemble pieces using pop dots to add dimension.
Step 9: Tie ribbon or yarn through the eyelets to assemble banner.
Step 10: Add Stickles (or other glitter glue) to red frame and letter. Set aside to dry.
Now your banner is ready to hang and enjoy!
