This was a project I made with my kids (mostly). I had had this pennant die from Sizzix for a long time, and I got it specifically for Halloween. This was the first time I actually got to use it though. Let me apologize for my crummy pics. I am exhausted, and couldn’t quite figure out the best way to photograph this baby.
It’s blurry and tough to see, but if you click on this or any other image you can see it bigger. So I had Nix help me pick out the papers (which he loves to do), and then he and Rhi helped me use the Sizzix machine to cut everything out. They did pretty well considering it got a bit boring for them after a while.
As you can see, there are 4 layers to each flag, so it was a lot of cutting. Luckily, we were able to cut a few pieces at once. They helped me ink up my letters (Inkadinkado), and add some glue. But they really couldn’t do much more. Honestly, they weren’t too into it by then anyway.
I used eyelash yarn to tie them all together after I added 2 eyelets to each pennant. I tied each piece separately so that I could have long tails throughout the whole banner.
Here you can see the size better since it’s in my hand. And I wanted you to see the little flecks of glitter in the black cardstock that I used. It’s so pretty! See the bits of gold and silver?
It was a really easy, but repetitive project. Not that I mind that at all. It was definitely fun, and I will probably make another one using different papers and of course, a different saying.
