A Sweet Little Fabric Project

I would like to show you a sweet little fabric project
using my new fabric, old book pages, cardstock and buttons



find a shape you would like to use for this project.
I have used this sweet oval scallopet piece of cardstock

cut out the shape from old book pages



and glue them on cream cardstock



cut out same shape in fabric.



three different fabric pieces in three different sizes


put the fabric on top of the paper piece you just made


and ad a vintage button in the middle


make tiny holes on top and ad string



and you´ll have a sweet little summer banner


all ready to hang




I really like this little summer banner
Sweet, romantic, shabby chic
and in the most beautiful soft colors.
I hope you like it too.
Have a lovely creative day.
Tina

Tina, omg, i LOVE that sweet banner!! it's adorable!!
I wonder if i could order two of them in a certain length to hang along the headboard of the guest room twin beds??
if so, how much are they apiece??

And, soon, we must do a one on one swap!! right now i'm getting ready to take care of my husband - he's having knee replacement surgery on wednesday. And, then of course, it would be helpful if i could get the crack house of a studio cleaned up.......it's really starting to bother me! LOL

and, one more thing:)
you are so creative! this little banner is the cutest thing

I'm madly in love with your gorgeous banner!!!!
