I wish I remembered where I originally saw this idea for a double sided Halloween and Thanksgiving banner. I would love to give that person credit for their ingenuity and creativity. Suffice it to say, it was not my idea. But it is an awesome idea. Especially if you start with CTMH's new Mischief paper. Because one side is black and grey damask design and the other side is brown, orange and wine stripes. Decidedly Halloween and Thanksgiving feels. So that is my base paper, the scalloped banner layer.
Viola! This is the Thanksgiving inspired side. Just a quick flip and you have the decoration for the next holiday.
And in the spirit of keeping it real! See what I did wrong? Oy! I am so lucky that each of the banner pieces was just tied together with ribbon. So it was easy enough to fix. But boy oh boy did my husband and youngest son have fun at my expense over this boo boo. They were doubled over with laughter when they noticed it (before I had....*slaps forehead in shame*). I had tied it together with the SPOOKY side up, and had inadvertently flipped the O's. But as you can see in the above photo, I had it fixed in under 10 minutes. So no harm done, and they say laughter is the best medicine. (Although I think the ones who said that, where not the ones being laughed at.)
Find inspiration everywhere! Go... Create something fun & fabulous. Enjoy!
