One of my favorite things is decorating for the holidays but it seems some of the smaller holidays
are so quickly over that I just don't get around to getting down my decorations
and putting them up. So I wanted to come up with a super simple and easy,
that I could basically make for each holiday - and would be QUICK>
o.k. so the easy part is if you are card maker or scrapbooker than you probably
have all these items at home already!
You just need a punch, a sewing machine (don't be afraid - just straight stitching)
punch a bunch (depending on how long you want your banner) of stars from
preferrably double-sided papers in an americana theme...
and get on your sewing machine and sew right through them---and keep going
until you reach the length you desire...double-sided paper makes it so you can
hang this up anywhere and not worry about which way the stars hang.
then find the perfect place to hang this baby up - I chose my mantel.
I made 2 strands - the longer is 50 stars long and I added a small rosette in the middle
of the strand - just to make it stand out a bit.
I love it and best part is if it gets crushed no big deal...I can make another one next year
and it'l be just as quick...
