{spring chevron banner}

I was lucky enough to try out the Spring Flowers die from Lifestyle's brand new Blossom collection, and it was the perfect addition to this fun spring chevron banner. It's being displayed on the mantel for now, but I think it would be so cute in a doorway, as part of a party tablescape, across an old window, or above a bed.

Using clothespins means you can leave your twine up, and just switch out the banner pieces when it's time for the next holiday and season--a huge timesaver!!


I love how fast and easy the dies are to use--in literally less than 5 minutes I had these darling flowers cut out, and ready to add to my chevron banner.  This is seriously a 10 minute banner, and you can't beat that!

SUPPLIES:
  • jute/twine
  • clothespins
  • coordinating scrapbook paper
  • spring blossoms die cut
DIRECTIONS:

1. Cut out your flowers, then fold on the perforated edges to create the 3-D effect.

2.  Cut out your banner pieces--mine are 6 inches tall and 5 inches wide.  I used a ruler to make straight lines on one of the pieces from each bottom corner up to a central point on the paper--then I cut out the bottom section with scissors.  I cut out the rest using that one as a template.

3.  Attach the flowers to your banner using double stick tape, or a tape runner.  

4.  Spray paint your clothespins if desired--I painted mine cream (Heirloom White, Rustoleum).  Once they're dry, you can use them to clip your banner onto the twine.

Done!  We are talking a seriously fast project here, and totally cute!

This is a great idea! I did a similar one for St. Patrick's Day, but if I had only used the clothespins I could have changed it out!

Know what that means? I have to make a new one!

Thanks for the inspiration!
