Autumn banner




Made this for my daughter, this completes the season banners for her.
Here is how I made it - I cut 4 x 4 pieces of cardboard from a USPS box I got in the mail.
Punched the holes in the pieces with my crop-a-dial.
Inked all the edges then proceeded to look at my carts for autumn items.
The font I cut the regular and shadow at 1 1/2" from Storybook (Thank you Audrey) and put that aside.
The elements were cut from the following:
A - The apples were cut from Doodlecharms at 2 1/4 and 1 3/4" page 118 key #37
U - The basket was cut from Doodlecharms at 2 1/4" Key #35
T - the leaves were cut from Doodlecharms at 1 1/2" key #34
U - the Pumpkins were cut from A Child's Year page 52
M - The ghost was cut from Paper Doll Dress Up at 1 1/2" 2 3/4", and 3" and the spiders were cut from Designer Calendar page 48 at 1 1/4" and 1 3/4"
N - The turkey was cut from Designer Calendar as well as the Pilgrim hat pg 38

Entering this at Paper Playtime autumn challenge - I just love this time of year here in New England!
oh -and to help me find some icons that I was not sure which page or cart they were on I used. What a big help. You should try it.

Sheryl, I really love this banner so much! I really think I'm going to have to 'lift' this idea, and make one similar! If I post it, I'll totally give you credit! I've been wanting to make one anyway, and this one is just too cute!
