Blessings Banner

This week I shared how to make a shaker pocket with the We R Memory Keepers Photo Fuse, and a shared a sneak peek my Blessings Banner (if you don't follow me on Periscope, you can find me as @SamanthaT1 on Periscope). Today, I have the finished banner and how I made it.

I started by using the We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch Board to make flag shaped banners from WRMK's Shine Collection paper.

The banners were cut from the 6 x 6 pad, while the letters were cut from a piece of 12 x 12 paper from the shine collection. I designed and cut the letters with my Silhouette Cameo.

I wanted to add a little something extra to the banner, so I decided to make 3 of the flags shaker flags. I used the plastic flag pockets from the FuseAbles Dear Lizzy Banner kit, but you could easily cut and make your own from page protectors as well.

I just placed the banner and some sequins (also from the FuseAbles Dear Lizzy Banner kit) and then used the Photo Fuse to seal the banner closed at the top.

I really love making banners, and the addition of shaker flags to the banner adds an extra bit of fun to banners!

Have you used the Fuse to make shaker pockets yet? They really are one of my favorite things, and can be added to just about anything; cards, layout, mini albums, and even banners!

Thanks for stopping by.
