How About A Banner?

 
One of the most fun parts of being creative is that you never run out of fresh home d├ęcor! You can make whatever you want with anything you have in all the colors you want and in the size that is just right for an odd corner or an empty space on the wall where nothing else you have will fit. Like this tiny banner...  
 
 
There were a few packs of canvas pieces - pennants, flower petals, leaves. There was a piece of ribbon from forever ago. And of course, there were colors, a few buttons, some thread and a needle.

 
When I got a few minutes off, I colored the canvas pieces with Gelatos colors. Stacked the layers of flowers and leaves together and stitched them together with buttons in the center. Stitched the flowers to the banner pieces and quickly handlettered the greeting with a Stamper's Big Brush pen. Doodled around a bit and stitched the pieces onto that from-forever-ago piece of ribbon to finish.
 
 
The little banner now adds color to a library ledge!
 
Quick, easy and FUN!
