My first Banner!!! Loved making this project!

Hello once again!

Today I am excited to share with you my very first banner. With Thanksgiving coming up I wanted a little something that would represent the holiday. I wanted to show my family that I am Thankful for all we have together. I Loved using the layers on this banner and the simple yet elegant technique of a glitter boarder with Sticky Tape and some PK Glitter Glitz.

The alternating glitz of the PK Glitter Glitz in Copper Penny, Pumpkin and New England Autumn compliment the fall color scheme in the papers. Here is a little fun family tip… With the scraps from my pennants I created some small strips of paper. We will have made 25 of them and each member of the family wrote down things they are thankful for. These will be read once a day, every day in the month of November, until Thanksgiving. This project helps us really get into the reason this holiday was created. You can see this off to the right of the banner in the picture below.
