Pamella Brown shares in a step-by-step photo tutorial how to make this ultra cute Hollyday banner:
Supplies: Sinter Klaas Paper (35479) - Hollyday, Santa Baby Paper (35482) - Hollyday, Cherry Nose Paper (35486) - Hollyday, Bellsnickle Paper (35487) - Hollyday, Bowl Full of Jelly Paper (35488) - Hollyday, Man With the Bag Paper (35494) - Hollyday, Jolly Old Elf Paper (35501) - Hollyday, Man With All the Toys Paper (35500) - Hollyday, Old Man Winter Paper (35480) - Hollyday, Whiskers Paper (35502) - Hollyday, White (71081) - Cardstock, Vellum Envelopes (85556) - Bits, Peppermint (72014) - Delights, Holiday House Printed Glossy Chipboard (77252) - House, Poinsettia (42202) - Remarks, Winter Wonderland (42201) - Remarks Books
Step 1: Type activities and print them out onto white cardstock. Trim them into individual pieces and set aside.
Step 2: Trim 24 pieces of Hollyday patterned paper to 2 x 4".
Step 3: On each piece of patterned paper, about a half inch up from the bottom, make a dot in the middle. Then trim/cut from the dot down to each of the bottom corners to create a piece of your banner.
Step 4: From the Man With All the Toys patterned paper, cut out numbers 1-24. Set the numbers aside.
Step 5: Set out all of the pieces of your banner and top with a vellum envelope and a number in a way that the colors/patterns are pleasing to you.
Step 6: Stitch together the tops of the banner. I did it on a very slow speed and when I got to the edge of a piece, I would just feed the next piece through my sewing machine until it was all stitched together.
Step 7: Add the vellum envelopes to each piece with the opening facing towards you. Slip in the strip with the activity printed on it. Add the numbers and embellish as desired. I didn't embellish every piece, so to make the ones I did not embellish more interesting, I used foam adhesive to attach the numbers.
Step 8: Hang up your banner and enjoy doing the daily activity leading up to Christmas!
Such a fun idea that's sure to be a hit with the family!
