Greetings Friends! Recently I've been updating my craft room, one project at a time. Every creative space needs an inspirational message or two, right? Today I'm sharing a simple toile banner that I created from two thrift store finds...
You may remember this gorgeous toile drawer liner from earlier this year. The fabulous paper had never been opened and cost me all of $1.50. Plus after transforming my china cabinet, there was still enough left to upcycle the bargain banner I found at Goodwill for .99. Happy dance!
I started by tracing the banner pieces on the toile, including the corner holes. If you use a one way pattern like mine, be careful to place the triangles so the design isn't upside down.
After cutting the toile triangles, I attached them to the banner pieces using craft adhesive squares. I use these for lots of my projects and they're perfect for attaching scrapbook or similar paper with no glue bumps or puckering.
Once the toile was attached, I used a hole punch. Since I had traced the holes onto the toile, the pre-cut holes on the banner pieces aligned perfectly.
Now it's ready for your choice of ribbon or twine. I used sheer organza ribbon.
I waited to add letter stickers until after I hung it because I knew it would be angled and not in a straight line.
I buy most of my larger letter stickers from Hobby Lobby, when they are 50% off. Occasionally the dollar store will have a few choices that are bigger, too.
I chose the word create for my banner, what word would you use?
