Graphic 45 Time to Flourish August Banner of the Month Tutorial
Hello, Friends! Well, here we are near the end of July, so it’s time to share our G45 Time to Flourish August Banner of the Month Tutorial. The August papers in this collection have always been my very favorite. Sunflowers and shades of aqua mimic a summer garden under a blue sky.
If you are new to this year-long series, you can find the January-July banner tutorials HERE.
This month’s banner has 7 pennants, so it’s fairly long. You’ll find a sweet little ATC tag pennant at each end.
I decided to mix and match pennant shapes because I like the visual contrast. Three of the pennants are made with Eileen Hull’s Sizzix Stitchlets House/Pocket Dies.
Then I decided to add a couple of Kraft Regular Tags because I love the dome shape, and the opportunity to add cute charms to the banner.
The pennants are stitched onto thick grosgrain ribbon topped with burlap striped ribbon.
Gorgeous butterflies from Reneabouquets look so real, and add wonderful detail to the design.
Vintage buttons from my stash are threaded with yellow to keep with the aqua/yellow color palette.
Of course, no banner is complete with out a floral bow cluster and a bit of twine, don’t you agree?
