Fall Banner!

Fall is in the air or on my wall !
For this theme, I chose to make a simple banner using some of my favorite (but almost gone) Stampin Up designer paper.
The banner is cut from Country Life at 7.75". I attached the layers to the ribbon using some copper brads.
The letters are from Birthday Bash cut at 2.5". I inked the edges of the shadow layer with Marina Mist and used dimensionals to attach the top layer. I tied some brown bakers twine to buttons that came from one of my husbands old shirts and randomly placed on each letter.
 The rosette is made from 2 strips of 1.5" x 11" paper that is scored every 1/2" and accordion folded. I wish I could show how you to actually finish making these, but there are lots of tutorials out there to help you better than I can :) I can tell you that I have found the only way to hold them together is to dig out the hot glue gun !
I added a brown corduroy button to the center while the glue was still hot... it won't be going anyhwere :)
I apologize for the pictures taken on my well used crafting paper... as you can see, I don't use a new one for each project. Some day I will be better at adding the photo taking into my project plans ... yea , right.... that would mean I actually plan my projects instead of winging it ... hehehe
Recipe is as follows:
Cricut Country Life -  Banner cut at 7.75"
Cricut Birthday Bash -  Letters cut at 2.5"
Papers from Stampin Up
Ribbon from Stampin Up
Button From Stampin Up
