I love making small banners for the holidays! Usually, I make horizontal ones, but for today’s project, I decided to go vertical! So maybe this would be more of a wall hanging than a banner? Oh well, whatever it is, it was certainly fun to make! 🙂
For this project, I used lots of different products, mostly from the Toil & Trouble Suite. The whole suite can be found on pages 48-51 of the Holiday Catalog. I absolutely LOVE how the Halloween products this year have not only black and orange, but also green and purple (or in Stampin’ Up! speak: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Granny Apple Green, and Gorgeous Grape!) Take a look at these colors together:
Don’t they look great together?
Measurements for this project are as follows:
Basic Black scalloped squares: 3 x 3 inches
Pumpkin Pie square layers: 2-5/8 x 2-5/8 inches
DSP squares: 2-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches
Scalloped circles: 1-5/8 inches in diameter
Whisper White letter circles: 1-1/2 inches in diameter
Length of project from top of top square to bottom of bottom square: 9-1/2 inches long
Length of whole project including ribbon on top and bottom: 13 inches long
All of the stamping on this project was done in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, and all of the coloring was done with Stampin’ Blends markers. The letters were stamped with the Layering Alphabet stamp set, and the whole banner was attached together with Black 3/8 Inch Glittered Organdy Ribbon and embellished with Spider Trinkets and Rhinestones!

This was definitely a fun project! Although I love to make cards, it’s nice to make something different every once in awhile. If you have any questions about this project, please feel free to ask!
Have a great day!
