Fun Friday with Pam

Fall is definitely in the air. What better way to spend a bit of time making a banner? I used the 12 x 12 set of 'Rare Oddities' by Graphic 45.
 It is always difficult to photograph a banner
Before the computer makers took away my ability to load my camera card directly to my photos, I would have used the 'good' camera.
 As things are,
these are just cell phone shots.

They look great on the small screen, but unfortunately

do not blow up well. Trust me when I tell you this was well worth all the fussy cutting and foam sticky stacking
Graphic 45 paper is so sturdy, you don't need to back the entire piece with chipboard. I just reinforced the top edge with a thin strip of chip board, so the twine couldn't pull through when I hung it up.
 Cut the letters with the Cricut Halloween cartridge in two coordinating colors. Then I stickled around the inner edge for a bit of sparkle
This is just a little black box made from cardstock and then embellished around the edge. The books are cut from one piece and rounded over a knitting needle to make them 3-D-ish
I love digging into the stash to find just the perfect ribbon bits. This is hung with twine, and attached to burlap ribbon {sale bin last fall} and some ribbon. I simply did a loose knot between each panel and then ran the ribbon through each knot.

Have a Great Weekend
Well, of course we are ladies!
