How-to create longer pennants..... (with video)

Pin It

I've been seeing pennants everywhere lately, on card sketches, I've been using them in my Project Life album, and I've been on a kick using them in cards lately too. A little farther down in today's post, you'll find a video showing how I've made these long pennants with the Die-namics Mix & Match Banners.

Today I've used them with the banner end pointing UP because it worked better for my layout. I combined several paper scraps from a few different paper lines with my Just My Type Stamp set and Die-namics. I kept the largest panel light with this ledger patterned paper and then got a big punch of color from some leftover patterned paper scraps....

But wait, they're also fabulous for scrapbooking. I can't believe I scrapped! Its been a while and I'm very out of practice, but this was FUN! I'm going to add this 12x12 into my project life album. We've had a really mild winter here in New England, so my kids were beyond excited when it finally snowed!

Accents for boys can be tricky, after all I have to leave my favorite embellishments (ribbons) out of the mix... I reached for my File Tab Die-namics and my Typewriter Alphabet for the "january" and then I grabbed for my By the Numbers Die-namics to cut out the number "21" from corrugated cardboard. It was then brushed with white crackle paint.

Here's a close look at the panel. I've added "snow" with the By the Letters Die-mamics, and then added the WoNkY Scallops Die-namics above a set of long pennants with the Mix & Match Die-namics and cut a set of corrugated cardboard snowflakes with Let It Snowflake Die-namics

Okay, so now here's the deal... with this tiny little Die-namics that looks like this....

Do you want to learn how to cut longer strips? You'll use up that leftover patterned paper, and quickly create fun embellishments! Here's a quick video showing you how I did it! You can also watch the video over on my YouTube channel....
