PPX Blog Hop

Today’s hop features the April 2024 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Delicate Wings.  This kit came with materials to make 9 cards.  I turned a few card bases from the kit into a Mother’s Day banner.

Alternate Project Idea

Mother’s Day Banner

For making this banner, I cut four card bases (two Basic Gray and two Lost Lagoon) in half along the score line and then in half again. This resulted in 16 pieces all measuring 4-1/4″ x 2-3/4″ (there will be one extra piece not needed for the banner).

I trimmed the bottom of each piece to form a banner shape. And I punched a little hole near the top corners of each piece. 

Then it was time to decorate the panels. Using Basic Beige cardstock, I punched 15 circles with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch and 15 with the 2″ Circle Punch.

On the smaller circles, I stamped the letters to spell out “Happy Mother’s Day” with Pretty Peacock ink. Then I added those stamped circles to the 2″ circles with Dimensionals.

Next, I added the layered circles to the banner panels with Dimensionals. The letters for “happy” and “day” went on the Basic Gray panels, and the letters for “mother’s” went on the Lost Lagoon panels.

To finish the banner, I added one small butterfly die cut to each panel (alternating the location and butterfly color) and strung all the panels onto a length of twine.
