Petaloo and Canvas Corp Brands Blog Hop: Pretty in Pink Graduation Banner and Mini Album
Hello, Friends! This week we are celebrating Dads & Grads in our blog hop with Canvas Corp Brands. I love seeing all the happy graduation photos on Facebook, and they inspired me to create a pretty in pink graduation banner and matching mini album.
Just for fun, I decided to go all shabby chic and girly with a pink & black color scheme. This banner would be darling at any girl’s graduation party, whether she’s graduating from Kindergarten or College. I used Canvas Corp Brands Paper Banner Kit as my base, but cut the size down just a little so my banner would not be too big.
Ooh la la! Just look at this gorgeous posy made with DIY Burlap Canvas layers from Petaloo! . Isn’t it spectacular? I sprayed the individual layers with Tattered Angels Vintage Pink and Silver Sugar Mists, then gently heat dried them. I actually kind of scrunched the petals during this process to give them even more shape. Then I stitched my layers together, added a vintage velvet button to the center and voila! A perfect color match for this pink and black graduation banner!
Custom clothespins? Yes, please! Just spray the ones that come in the banner kit with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist! Easy peasy!
Here’s the graduation folioI made to match the banner. It measures 4″ x 5″ and has a waterfall folio, gift card pocket and tag pocket inside. I was inspired by a design from Ginger Ropp,and just changed the size and added my own touches. Thanks, Ginger!
For the cover of this mini album, I sprayed the butterfly with Vintage Pink Tattered Angels Glimmer mist. The flower petals were just lightly dipped into the mist that was left on the mat. Pink chevron ribbon was wrapped around the mini album and tied into a bow. DIY Queen Anne’s Picks were dipped into Vintage Pink mist and tucked behind the tinted flower. Metal corners were painted shabby white, and I added a little vintage clip to hold the waterfall pages inside the album closed.
There’s a waterfall feature inside the top half of the album. It’s a great place to add pics of the proud grad and her family and friends.
The bottom half of the mini album contains a pocket filled with tags that have been tied with cording from Canvas Corp. These would be a great spot to have guests write their words of congratulations or advice. And, there’s room to tuck in gift cards as well.
