How to make a Fall Banner

Step 1: Cover chipboard scalloped banner shapes with White acrylic paint and let it dry. Ink the edges with some brown ink. (I used Ranger’s Tea Die)

Step 2: Ink the edges with Tea Die distress ink

Step 3: Cover the scalloped edges with Ranger Clear crackled paint and let it dry

Step 4: cover the inside straight edge banners with Pretty Little Studio’s Antique Collection papers, ink them a bit to get this stained antique look with the same ink. Adhere the covered paper banners over the scalloped ones.

Step 5: Go wild and crazy with embellishing your banners. I used everything I could here: PLS lemon slices to make the round banner on the left flag, using some Baker’s twine. Fall flashcards were added as a triple, covered with Bottle Cap Co cap with 1” Orange Juice vintage tag inside, heavily inked for the old vintage look. Then I added some Prima swirls and a silk flower and this flag was done.

Step 6: The right flag was embellished with Vintage Feedsack Paper Ribbons and two train tickets one form the tickets tag set and one hand cut from the Antique Store Paper Collection Cutout Sheet. Another bottle cap was added and a bare Orange Juice vintage tag was also added on this cluster of embellishments. To make it symmetric I added a piece of the same brown blink as on the left piece

Step 7:  The central piece got a special treatment. I used Tando Creative Bird cage chipboard covered with white crackle Ranger paint and inked a bit after it was dry. The chipboard birdie on a branch was glued over, and then covered with Ranger Glitter Glues. The big cluster of Pretty Little Studio goodies was added using Bingo cards. The Old Maid flashcard was torn and glued on top. The old phone (Antique Store Cutouts) was the final touch. Making Memories metal charm sealed the cluster. Some pearls and a sentiment just finished this flag.

Connect all three flags with ribbons, add some twine for hanging and enjoy your beautiful altered project made with our fantastic Pretty Little Studio papers, cards, tags and other embellishments.
