Greetings and thanks for visiting.
Today I will share my latest project, this banner.
I started by cutting premium poster board into pennants then chomping the holes to string them together.
I cut small notches at the top of this tri-fold foam core display and inserted the string then pulled to tighten it. They could be tied together for a longer single banner, but this will work as a display board.
I took down the top cluster of pennants and removed the string so that I could add grommets. That's a lot of chomping, so I did it in shifts.
I played with different possible ways to layer the letters to add dimension and interest. I decided to keep it simple adding just the white embossed layer over the base, then the letters.
Using the georgia font at 3" tall I cut the first layer of letters/words from recycled cereal boxes and chip board from various products. Then I cut them again using the deep blue to glue on top.
I glued the letter layers together and finished cutting and embossing the white layer, but I needed to give my arm a rest from cranking the cuttlebug.
Here's my spray booth, this makes for easy assembly so I even spray glued the letters, in the end it all came together very quickly.
Our club's logo is "keeping library doors open", so I want to some how feature the tri-fold as library doors, any ideas are welcome.
Personal note: Yesterday I had an SLT (laser surgery) done to my left eye. After my 2 week check up I'll schedule the first cataract removal. With the eye pressure lowered I hope it will relieve the light sensitivity I've been experiencing.
Hoping all is well with all y'all.
