Welcome Paper Sisters Circle to a new and beautiful month and another AWESOME Swap together!!!

Before I start with the specifics I would like you all to welcome Val "izzy0611" and "Cheena"to the Circle. They are awesome scrappers and even more awesome ladies...so give them a HUGE welcome!!!

So now to officially kick off our new swap for the month of March...


"Scrappy Beautiful Banners"

These are going to be a BLAST to create!!

Here are the specifics:

***Due Date: APRIL 15, 2012***


** We will be making 1 Banner piece for every person in the Paper Sisters Circle...There should be 10 participants in this spot unless someone has to decline to participate, and then we will let you all know as we go!**

1. Each person in the group will choose the colors that they would like their banner piece to be. We will then let everyone know our color choices. This is the important part in order to have it be individualized for each Sister.

2. Each banner piece must be cut out of chipboard.

3. Cut any shape banner piece of your choosing at 7" so that they all will be about the same size when strung together. We want to be able to see our banners when we walk into our scrap rooms!We will then make two holes to the banner piece. One on each top corner. If it is a shape like a diamond, then it would simply be one in the center! The less holes the better!! This is so we can attach it to the actual strand that will hold the banner together

4. Cover your banner piece in any way you choose, Paint, Fabric, Patterned Paper, Cardstock. Remember to cover both sides and embellish both sides as well, as our banners may turn or flip as they hang and we want our banners to look spectacular!! Use your imagination and have FUN doing these!!!

5. Embellish any way that you'd like! Add a word letter, a poem, quote, or just leave it simple and the recipient can add what they'd like to those. But there must be at least 4 embellishment techniques. ie inking, flowers, lace, ribbon, charms, brads etc...

6. The most important thing to remember about this swap is to have FUN!!! Be creative, and express YOURSELF!!!!

If you have any questions along the way...please ask.

After you have completed your banner pieces you will individually bag each banner piece with the swap name, your Sisters Name, your username, your real name, and then put them in an appropriate sized envelope and send my way! You will need to include return postage in the same amount that you spent to send. I will cover anything over or under. I will see that they all get distributed and sent to the each Sister.

Welcome Izzy

I've attempted to make a Thanksgiving banner, but never finished it- so this will make me actually get a banner together.

Okay- my colors are Dark Purple w/touches of greens & yellows with cats. I don't mind lavender in it- but the predominant color is Purple please.

I just watched some videos a friend sent me and she found this type of mini called "stack the deck" - ever heard of it?? Maybe for one of our future projects we could be paired with someone and go all out on making one of them...Just a thought!

Good Morning Beautiful Ladies....

That is a great question about the holes at the top!!! I will add that to the specifics.

We will add two holes to the banner piece. One on each top corner. If it is a shape like a diamond, then it would simply be one in the center! The less holes the better!! I just updated the instructions so that we can refer back if necessary!!

I am so happy to see that we are getting this kick started and can't wait to actually create these banner pieces!!!
