I saw this banner in the Hobby Lobby scrapbooking publication in an advertisement for Glue Dots. I loved it and decided to replicate it using my own materials. The only things I needed to purchase were the burlap and canvas. Burlap is so trendy right now that when I went to buy it I had to get specialty burlap (it has silver in it) because they were sold out of the regular kind. Here's what it turned out like:
I knew just where I planned to hang it...in the cutout window between my kitchen and living room. Then I realized I would have to make the other side pretty too. So I decided to cutout a fancy design from the Damask Decor Cricut Cartridge with a snowflake motif and used some of my lovely snowflake embellishments that my friend, Heather (ScrapHappyLady) sent me last Christmas. I knew just what it needed to say HOPE. To remind me of The Lord and to keep my faith strong and Hope in Him for a bright New Year.
