One of my favorite past Stamps in the Mail Club projects – and I’m sad to see this Kind & Cozy stamp set retire! Be sure to order the stamp set along with the Artisan Label Punch (half off!!) before they both disappear. Then sit down and make a fun springtime/summertime banner. Just change the colors to suit the season!
Note – I used the retired Typeset Big Shot Dies for the letters here, but you’ll want to grab the retiring Perfect Print Alphabet Dies (133725) or the Little Letters Thinlits (133730) for your project.
Guess what? I even grabbed a video tutorial for this project for you from my 2013 archive (my Stamps in the Mail Club has been running for 102 months now!) and you can check out the step-by-step tutorial video or take look at the steps I’ve provided below.
(Wow – my videos are a little different now than they were 2 years ago… but the project is still a good one! Plus you get a sneak tour of my stamp studio. It’s not perfect, but it’s home 🙂 )
Steps to Make Your Own Kind & Cozy Welcome Banner
- Begin by punching all the 2-3/8″ circles and stamping with the gingham circle image in the coordinating color (color on color for a subtle effect).
- Fold each Artisan Label punched piece in half. Lay one out for each stamped circle. Lay out die cut letters, too.
- In coordinating ink, stamp an image 3 times for each circle – once on the folded Artisan Label piece, once on the letter, and once on the circle background. To line up the images on the circle background, stamp FIRST on the letter, then lay letter on circle as guide. REMOVE letter, and stamp image to line up. They don’t have to be exact – close is good
- On the first circle, there is no letter. Use Markers to ink the tea cup stamp on the Scallop Circle punched piece.
- Add all letters and scallop circle with Stampin Dimensionals (you may need to trim or use ½ dimensionals).
- Attach all circle pennants to the Baker’s Twine: Use a Stampin’ Dimensional to adhere the folded Artisan Label piece to the top of the circle. Press Baker’s Twine onto the dimensional, then fold Artisan Label piece down to trap twine in place.
- Continue adding all circle pennants in order.
- When circles are attached, wrap the end of the Baker’s Twine around one of the bamboo skewers several times. Tie a bow with half of the Crumb Cake Taffeta Ribbon. You can tie the bow around the skewer or around the Baker’s Twine if you prefer.
- Add hot glue or Multipurpose Liquid Glue (green lid glue) to the back of a Crisp Cantaloupe punched scallop circle. Press the glued piece onto the back of the skewer to hold the ribbon and Baker’s Twine in place.
- When finished, the skewers can be placed in small vases or bottles to display your banner. Frappucino bottles are perfect ☺
