I know banners have been around for awhile, but this is only the second banner I've ever made. I used the Spellbinder Sunflower dies and scalloped square Nestabilies die, and I used the autumn leaf Cuttlebug die & matching embossing folder, and the autumn words embossing folder, along with the Cuttlebug Harmony alphabet for the letters. I don't know who makes the ribbon. It's a simple design, but the cutting and embossing took quite awhile. The banner was created using good ol' die-cuts, chalks, and inks.
You can click on the full banner photo to see a larger image of the completed project. This is probably obvious, but the leaves spell one word, while the banner flags spell another, so together they say, "happy FALL."
I'm planning to do another banner for Halloween, again using die-cuts, but probably incorporating punches and stamps, too.
