Hey there, crafty friends! Michelle here, and I’m back with a new project using the Magical and Mischievous kit from The Fairytale Club! I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wanted to be one of those people whose home is decorated for every season. And since I spend so much time in my home office, I thought I would take this kit of magical Halloween goodies and make a cute banner for my bookshelf!
I started by selecting five patterns from the 12x12 sized pages and cutting them into the banner pieces. Then I selected three cards from the cut-out sheet that coordinated well with the patterns I chose.
Then it was time for the fun part, which was to add all the trim and ephemera! This step always makes the biggest mess but it is also the most fun! I spread all the bits and pieces across my desk, and through trial and error, I see what works best.
I really like to play with different textures, which is something you can see in this project. Most of the banner pieces have cute ephemera bits, as well as some sort of textured elements, such as ribbon or the ever-so-cute pom poms!
After each banner piece was all done, I laid them all out and used hot glue to attach them to the orange and white string I happened to have on hand. Being a crafty lady is so fun! You never know what kind of supplies you may find in my stash.
The final step was to add the mini pom poms to the strand, and hang it up! I love how this came together, and it adds a little seasonal touch to the office!
I hope you enjoyed this fun and festive project! It demonstrates just how versatile paper crafting can be and I hope this inspires you to try something new. Happy crafting!
