More about Banners
Since I'm sure y'all aren't sick of me talking about banners, I thought I'd show you the ones I made for Meghan and ebbyanne. I usually don't show things I've made for gifts until the recipient has received it, unless I'm sure she doesn't read my blog. But ebbyanne lives in New Zealand, so it will probably take forever to get to her. When we sent our wedding invitation to my family in Australia, they didn't get it until two months after the wedding, because I forgot to send it airmail. I'm very pleased with how these turned out. I like the extra texture and layers of paper. And of course I love my using my scented coffee-dyed paper for anything. I think I may redo my own banner in this design. I think the design of these banners work for halloween, like Meghan's "BOO", or for everyday, like ebbyanne's "NOTES". Since it's currently spring where she is living, I didn't want to make it too harvest-y. Now I need to go find appropriate envelopes to send these off!
