DIY: Sentiment Banners


I love making banners for any occasion there is, from birthdays, to holidays, and weddings. I recently made a simple "love is sweet" banner for my best friend's wedding, which was hung from the cupcake table. I don't have pro pics of that yet, but I do have what is shown above (please excuse the toys in the background!).

What made this so simple is my amazing Silhouette CAMEO! This banner came together in about 30 mins from design to assembly. That's it! My bestie, the bride, loved how it just added a special pop to a table that otherwise would have been a bit bland. Her wedding was held in a western barn venue, so the choice to do the simple black and white cardstock, hung with twine was perfect. The font used was Pointedly Mad-love this font for that western vintage feel.

I also made a similar sign for my Thanksgiving gathering yesterday, and again, it added a pop to the dining area, which would have otherwise been a little bland. I used kraft paper and cut the "curved frame" with that, which I downloaded the shape from the Silhouette Store for Silhouette CAMEO and Silhouette Portrait users, black cardstock cut as the same font above, used white twine to string along, embellished with pretty little burlap flowers and copper/tan mesh wire. I love how this turned out, and so did my guests!

Here's a few more pics.



So darn simple, people! My guests thought I bought the banner! Oh, it doesn't get any better than having a Silhouette CAMEO or Silhouette Portrait in your crafting corner! ;)
