Sweet Summer Mini Alphabet Punchboard Banner

I got my hands on the new We R Memory Keepers Mini Alphabet Punch Board, and have had some time to play around with it now. You guys, it is so much fun! There are so many ways to use these smaller letters; cards, layouts, party decor...and today I'm using it to make a Sweet Summertime Mini Alphabet Punchboard banner.

This board works just like the original Alphabet Punch Board, but starts with 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" rectangles of paper for a smaller set of letters. It's super easy to use, and becomes really intuitive after a few letters...but don't worry if it doesn't become intuitive, there's a step by step guide for making each letter.

It only took me a few minutes to create my letters for my Sweet Summer banner with the Mini Alphabet Punch Board. Since creating the letters was so fast, I decided to dress them up with a few summery icons.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut some flamingos and pineapples, because what says summer more than flamingos and pineapples?

Then I added some fun dimension to them with the We R Memory Keepers Honeycomb Stencils and some Honeycomb paper (yellow for my pineapples and pink for my flamingos). They turned out so cute! A little honeycomb paper adds so much.

I pierced little holes through each letter, and used some bakers twine to string it all up. Now I have a bright new summer banner to hang up.

If you're loving this new Mini Alphabet Punchboard, you can pick it up from HSN on July 6. HSN is having a 24 hour craft event on July 6, and there will be live demonstrations during the day of this super fun and versatile new tool. You'll be able to see live how easy it is to use (and order one for yourself!).
