Apple Season Banner for Really Reasonable Ribbon
Hello, Friends! This vintage style Apple Season Banner makes me think of my mom. Her birthday was in September, and every year we trekked off to a nearby apple orchard to celebrate her birthday. We picnicked under the apple trees surrounded by the sweet perfume of ripe apples. Lazy bumblebees provided the background music and a crystal blue sky was the canopy over our heads. Nothing compares to that first intoxicating bite into an apple picked from a northern orchard. First you hear the crunch as your teeth break through the skin. Then the juice runs down your chin and up your forearm as the sweet/tart flesh fills your mouth. Mmmm…let’s go apple picking!
Shades of Red, Ivory and Rust
Each pennant on this banner is machine stitched onto Rust Silky Crush and Sherry and Ivory Plaid Ribbons. Ivory Crochet Lace Trim adds just the right touch of vintage goodness. And burlap string brings in the rustic feel of fallen leaves. It’s such a pretty combination!
Alternate die cut pennants with Graphic 45 Kraft Regular tags to create a lot of visual interest. Then die cut Tim Holtz Skeleton Leaves from scraps of burgundy and green papers to mimic autumn leaves.
I really had to dig deep into the Closet of Inspiration and Delight to find this combination of Authentique Autumn Collection and the September Calendar Collection. (Both are retired, but if you do a Google search, you can still find bits and pieces out there. I will link below.)
Even the flowers are retired Petaloo blossoms. But they were the perfect color match for the papers, so I had to use them!
What is your favorite fall memory? Tell me about it in the comment section below. I love to hear your stories, too, you know!
Now I think I will go bake an apple pie!
Thanks for stopping by!
