I finished the "Trick or Treat" banner I was working on yesterday :)
I love the colours and how fun it is :)
It was from a kit I had purchased at Hobby Lobby when I was in the States.
One thing with working from a kit…Nothing is perfect…or to my standards, lol.
But in the end, it looks great.
I hate to admit this but Heather had to help me with this part.
I have made my own rosette flowers or accordion medallions for years, so when I had to make these ones they confused me.
The strip of paper they supplied was already scored…and not perfectly I might add ;)
But when I fanned it out, it only was 1/2 a rosette?!
So I thought I would cut the paper in half lengthwise and attach them to make the strip longer, then it would make a full circle.
Then Heather came and read the instructions and explained it better.
I had to accordion fold it, pinch the middle (so it looks like a bow tie) then adhere the top edges together and then the bottom 2 edges together.
See a circle :)
After that is complete, then add adhesive (I used my hot glue gun) and adhere the folds in the centre.
I have never made one like this before….see old dogs can learn new tricks ;)
I am really happy with how it turned out.
Now I just have to figure out where to display it ;)
Ashley was also working on a banner today.
She actually hand cut all of her letters out and then came by to use some of my pattern paper to make the base of her banner.
I will share hers on another post as it deserves a post all of its own ;)
Today is Season #3 of the Walking Dead for us.
And here is my attire for today's Season ;)
I think I have run out of Walking Dead shirts now.
We plan on watching Season #4 this week. A little bit each day, until the new Season starts soon.
I hope you all had a very Creative Sunday :)
