Banner garland

Hi friends ,
This project is very close to my heart as I made it for my daughters room. Both of us love pink and we always wanna be surrounded with this gorgeous colour .
I created a banner for her pin up board where she organises her school schedule and her other activities. 

Step 1:
I started by cutting 5 thick Kraft coloured triangles and 5 different pion patterned paper triangles( which were a little smaller than the Kraft triangles) I love the pion papers because they r so pretty and girly.

Step 2: 
I used clear bead gel and the beautiful tim holtz lace stencil to add some texutre on the triangles.

Step 3:
Next I stamped few Altenew vintage flowers and vintage roses with the help of my misti tool. Fussy cut them by hand.
I used the stampin up inks for these vibrant pretty blooms.I have a tiny video tute to introduce you to "Misti"

Step 4:
I wanted to use the super cute Julie Nutting wooden dolls for this project as my daughter loves them. I wanted to trim away the loop and it was easy with tonic scissors.

Step 5:
I used one of my spellbinders labels die to cut 5 pieces which i have placed at the base of my arrangement. There are lots of cute tags and elements in the pion stack and I trimmed and distressed them too.

Step 6: 
I punched some pink paper with the STAMPIN up border punch & added at the top. I sticked a pearl string and a white lace trim to add interest.

Step 7:
Final arrangement of the banner . I layered few pion elements and tags over each other. Then I placed the roses and leaves. I sticked the doll and a cute mini metal charm. To add a little bling I used the mariane crystals here and there. 
Finally i stringed all the five triangles through some seem binding and a cute banner was created .
Here are some close up shots :

My daughter absolutely loved it and will place it the way she wants.
I hope u too liked this post.
