Paper Banner- Blog Hop Swap

This week three great companies May Arts RibbonLittle Yellow Bicycle, and Xyron are teaming up to bring you projects all week long. I had the chance to play with beautiful ribbons from May Arts, pretty ‘Poppy’ pattern papers (say that 3 times fast) from LYB, and the most innovative adhesive from Xyron. I created a paper banner for my kids playhouse.


The fun ribbons I chose for my paper banner- chevron twill, bakers twine, and faux canvas.


The poppy pattern paper triangles are sewn directly to the lengths of May Arts ribbon.


I used xyron create a sticker to attach the centre decals. The cute flowers, bunny, and butterflies are also from the LYB Poppy collection.


Hop along to see the other projects featured by my friends, Sandy Allnock  and Leah Farrar-White.
