NOEL Banner

I created this banner using letters cut from Silver Glimmer Paper using the Typeset Alphabet die and the Big Shot.

The letters are mounted on Basic Black card stock punched with the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle punch.
The rosettes are made of vintage sheet music using the Designer Rosette Die.
You really want this die if you like to make rosettes!  It adds all the score lines and has 2 decorative edges.  I cut the sheet music 4" wide and layed in the center of the die to run through that Big Shot for the score marks.  I then cut it in half at 2" and used the 2 pieces to create a 4" rosette.
Vintage sheet music is fragile to work with but love the look.

I hand cut the bulap and dove-tailed the bottom, they are about 4" x 8".
Sewed a length of vintage rick-rack across the tops.
Sorry that the photo does not show this off as nice as it looks in person.  It has such a soft vintage look to it.  Love it!
Happy Craftin'-
