Must be embellished 3 times... painting, paper/cs, rosette, brads/gems/bling, ribbon, doilies, embossed piece, metal, fringe, twine, washi...each piece would be considered one).

Wow, I'm surprised this thread has not had a response yet. The new swappers must not realize how awesome these banners are.

Sure thing melissamom39!

I did remove blessings and shorten the banner to just EASTER so there will only be 8 total pieces to make.

It's been almost a year since I hosted the last one and with wait lists at that so in guessing banners are quite "in" this year? Lol.

Jeanette - I will take the A. Just to clarify, are we using pastel colors or brights of the accent colors?

Great! I updated OP.

One spot left. Let's close this out. Meanwhile has anyone began thinking up ideas yet? I'm happy to say I still have moss left over from last year's banner which is in my gallery for anyone who would lie to see. Although this year I will remember to cut up the sticky moss outside on the grass and not on my granite.....oh vey a mess it was!

Thanks, Shilo.

Pastel, soft colors for accent colors for the "vintage appeal"

I think we were posting at the same time but I will take the last spot so you can close this swap. Just had the question I posted above about colors

Jeanette, the Easter Banner Pieces link didn't work for me. I was wondering about the width, but that link would probably answer my question.

Just wanting to wish everyone a great weekend ahead. Happy crafting if that may be the case. Time to begin cranking out a few chipboard pennants.

The banners on your blog are so cute! We can make them out of card stock, right? Just making sure they don't need to be chipboard.

If you use a heavy card stock then it should be fine.

Found a great Vintage image to use.

Can you please advise: I want to do the point shape. If the point is 5 1/2" long, how wide is it across the top? I just want to make sure I get the shape 100% correct.

Can you advise, I want to get started.

Thanks!

Sorry for being tardy....let's see it's going to vary but the top could vary from 3 - 4 inches from my guesstimate. HTH.

I am going to browse the web shortly and see if I can find one to post here but if not, do you happen to have a Cricut or Cameo?

I drew a double-pointed banner on my Silhouette that was 5-3/4 high x 3" wide. The proportion looks about like the ones on your blog, maybe a bit wider.

I have a cricut I have lots of banner templates. There are many on Pinterest. I hope we are all using the same general size so the banner looks proportionate.

Mine are done, but I hope I did a good size. I did the 2 point style and they are 4" across by 6" long. I figured that was the size of a photo and those look good? Am I okay at that size?

I haven't cut mine yet. For the double-pointed pennant, if they are a little narrower, it might be a better proportion to go with the triangle. I'll make my double-pointed piece 3-1/2" x 6".

Finished my spot here is a sneak peak. But I did do them 4x6 so if I need to make them smaller, I can redo them. Let me know Jeanette.
