An itch to craft

Here lately I have been in a crafty mood, tonight I had to scratch my itch. I have been wanting to DIY everything. This weekend I have the opportunity to take some senior pictures of Heather and wanted to make something with her year on it. So I decided to make a banner out of scrapbook paper that we can tie around a tree or maybe even an old fence. This cost less than 2bucks, if that. 
 First I cut the scrapbook paper into triangles.
 I had Heather print off some numbers in a font of her choice for us to cut out and trace.
 I traced them upside down on the back of the scrapbook paper, it is much easier to see pencil on white than this background.
After I finished with the tracing and cutting the numbers out, I used Modpodge to glue them to the paper. I used my hole puncher to place a hole in the right and left upper corners of each triangle. Then, I used twine rope to hang it on. I can't wait to see how this turns out in her pictures! Check back next week to see this banner in action :)


  1. Yay! Now all I need is cute outfits(:

  2. Cute!! Love your scrapbook choices. I just finished up a banner for Adeline's birthday party. I will have lots of pictures of her party up on my blog next week.
