Pennants for Our Party!


Here's one of the cards we'll making this Friday at Stamp Class! I think the whole Pennants thing is so cool and trendy right now - I Love 'em!! And, of course, I love new stamps, but I love 'em even more when they have coordinating punches. Yesss....!



OK, but for class, I sorta cheated, but in a good way! Instead of stamping all the cool little pennant centers (which there are four fun different designs!), I decided to use the new Just Add Cake Designer Papers. Easier - just punch 'em out! Then I used Cardstock for the scallop-edged "background" pennant piece. - Wahlah!

But then we will do a little stamping for the little accent circles on the pennants! - And a super cool secret about all the sayings in the Pennant Parade set - they all fit inside the 3/4" circle punch so you can add them to your pennants - Fun!!



And here's a little fake out - for the string (White Baker's Twine) that holds the pennants all together... it's just two separate bows tied onto the ends. There really isn't a string attaching them all together. You don't really need it because you can just glue them down with a little overlapping to make them look "strung together."


Hope to see you on Friday (the first day to order from the new Catalog too!!),
