Hello, crafty friends! Today I'm sharing a fun mini album technique using the brand new Jen Hadfield Banner Punch Board. To be honest, nothing inspires me more than a new crafty tool! I love to challenge my creativity and find unique ways to use them! This time I was lucky enough to get the chance to try out this pretty, pink Banner Punch board by Pebbles and Jane!
This tool is so versatile and useful, you can make banners in 30 different shapes and sizes in no time! Plus it has a hole punch built into it!
I love to decorate our home with banners for special events like birthday party, New Year Eve or Holiday season.
And there is only one thing, that could be more fun than creating a banner... creating a mini album with banner shaped pages! This way you can use your pages as a regular mini album insert, but you can also use them as a banner and display on your wall! It's easy-peasy!
I started my project by creating a cover for my mini album. I used my recent favorite holiday collection, the Merry Days by Crate Paper. I trimmed three heavy cardstock pieces into 3X5.5", 1.5x5.5", 4x5.5", and covered them with patterned paper. I added red baker twine for closure the album and also added a red fabric piece to the spine. I adhered the gold 'Christmas' puffy sticker to the spine as my title.
I punched two holes to the top of the back cover and placed bookbinding rings into them. I trimmed patterned papers and photos using the Banner Punch Board, decorate them with stitching, stickers and ephemera pieces.
In case we haven't decorated our home for Holiday yet, I put the pages into the album and enjoyed the photos by flipping through the pages.
I love the fact that it will take only a minute for me to remove the pages and create a banner from them using a thread. It will be a nice decoration for our living room in December.
I hope I could inspire you to give a try to this super fun tool, and create a bunch of banners to decorate your home! Thank you for stopping by! Bea
