So pull out some of your pretty pastel papers and let’s get busy.
Easter Banner and Mini
“Hello Graphic45 fans! Are you decorating your house for Easter? I love Easter decor and today I will show you something.
I have many scraps of different collections Graphic45. I collected all the trimmings and chipboard and made an Easter banner. Its special feature is that you can paste a photo on the back of the banner.
Especially for you, friends, I have prepared
Cut out the banner details: 8 – lilac, 8 – yellow . Size of the lilac detail is 14,5 cm*10 cm. The size of the yellow is 13,5 cm*9 cm.
I stitched the yellow parts on the sewing machine.
3. To create a volume of details, I use binding cardboard.
4. Prepare details on the Easter theme.
Tip: Use cards, a chipboard, and cut-out items from different collections. I use Secret Garden DCE, Sweet Sentiments collection, Once Upon a Springtime DCE, Botanical Tea DCE, Portrait of a Lady collection (chipboard). WOW!
Don’t forget to cut branches and leaves. Use Large Tag, ATC Tag and Flower Dies
5. Glue the prepared parts
9. Now cut out the details for the photo. Size of my details 8,5 cm*8,5 cm
10. Glue the details on the back of the banner
And my video for you” ~Yulia
