Hi everyone, summer is finally here in New York. The sun is shining and it's actually stopping raining. July 4th is right around the corner and I've created a 4th of July banner for the upcoming festivities
Follow along on how I've used a Clear Scraps Large Acrylic Banner, Rinea Patriotic Foiled Paper Variety Pack and Xyron Adhesives to create this fun party banner.
Using one of the Large Acrylic Banners from Clear Scraps, I used it as a stencil to cut Ruby Starstruck Foiled Paper which I adhered it to the back of the panel. Next I cut Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper slightly smaller to fit the front of the panel.
I also die cut a medallion from Sapphire Starstruck Foiled paper and matted it on Ebony/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper so it would stand out. A small hanging banner was die cut from Silver Glossy and the letters were die cut from Ebony/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper. Using the XyronⓇ Create-A-Sticker, I added adhesive to the banners and the medallion. At 5" wide, the XyronⓇ Create-A-Sticker was the perfect size for adding adhesive to the large die cut elements.
Next, I used the XyronⓇ 3" Disposable Sticker Maker to add adhesive to the letters. The smaller size sticker maker means less adhesive waste for tiny elements.
The layers were assembled and placed atop the banner.
The firecrackers were die cut from three layers - Ruby Starstuck and Ebony/Gold Glossy Foiled Papers. Running the die cuts through the Xyron Create-A-Sticker, I easily assembled the three layers together and placed the firecrackers behind the medallion.
To finish I rolled several thin strips of left over foiled papers around a craft pick creating some fun spirals that were added to the bottom of the banner. Ribbon was added so the banner could hang.
Thanks for stopping by.
