I used Elegant Edges and Storybook for this banner. I cut the letters to spell the baby's name, Autumn. I cut a different shape using different patterns of paper from Elegant Edges.
I purchased the chipboard banner from Hobby Lobby. I painted the back with pink paint then adhered the paper to the front. The layers consist of patterned paper, a white paper doilie, the cut shapes of paper and then the letters. It's hard to tell in my picture but there is a sublte pattern on the paper I used for the letters.
I used prima flowers and little flat back pearls for the centers. The two butterflies are cut from the paper. I used baby blue stickles for some sparkle and another flat back pearl on the butterflies. I will be stringing it together with pink and green ribbon from my stash.
After the baby shower the banner will be used as a nursery wall decoration. Great idea for a gift don't you think? I hope the mom-to-be loves it. I like the way it turned out.
