Trick or Treat Banner

When I was in Iowa in August I decided to make a Halloween banner based on one I saw in a catalog.  The one in the catalog looked cheap and probably wouldn’t last the month so I bought most of the supplies to make my own.  When I got back to Denver I bought the Martha Stewart Scoring Board.  It is a tool I have wanted for a while and now I have a reason to need it. 

I finally got started on the banner on Sept. 30.  I used the Haunted Manor line by Doodlebug and black cardstock. 

Start of the banner

I cut the paper to fit on the chip board banner pieces from Hobby Lobby.  That took a couple of hours.  Then I experiments with making the rosettes.  The 1 1/2 inch strip was too small but 2 inches was too big and it ripped when I was trying to flatten it.  I ended up with 1 3/4 inch strips.  That made a 3 1/2 inch rosette.  I cut a 2 1/2 inch circle using the George and Basic Shapes cartridge.  Then I cut a 1 3/4 inch circle to put on top of that.  I finished it off with the letters cut from Jubilee at 3 3/4 inches. 

I put it together with black hemp yarn.  Then I decided it needed a little something else and put Halloween brads in the holes.
