Imagine Christmas Banner!

This banner took me a lot longer than I thought it would.  But I had fun
making it.  I used the word Christmas for my banner.  Next time I
should use the word Joy, just for the sake of time! 
I folded 9 triangles out of green paper and cut 9 scalloped circles using
the Accent Essentials Cricut Cartridge.  I keep my chalk in a set of
drawers I got from Home Depot and used the same dark green chalk to color
the triangles and scalloped circles.  I used a hole punch to make a hole in
the edges of each scallop.  Then I glued the circles to the triangle and
covered the entire thing with Glossy Mod Podge collage glue to seal in the chalk
to keep it from getting messy.
I used the Storybook Cricut cartridge to make the letters.  I used gold
glitter glue to embellish them.    Then I used a Martha Stewart
punch to make the red border on the top of the triangles using regular red
cardstock.  I punched a hole on each side of the triangle tops and used a
brad to attach them together.

It's not easy getting a good photo of shiny crafts!

I threaded white buttons with green floss and used a sticky dot to stick them to
the front of the brads.

Then I glued a bow made of red floss and onto the bottom tips.  Finally, I
used a thread and needle to secure the jingle bells on the very bottom.

Thanks for reading!
