Simple Rustic Snow Flake Banner. I am in the final stages of planning my niece’s birthday…and the theme has changed on me a few times. We finally decided on a rustic winter themed party at my house this weekend. I think our new snow machine was the deciding factor for her.
Ellison Die Cutting Machine
Snow Flake #3 Die
Make a sandwich with the die and cutting pads; cutting pad, die, vellum or paper, cutting pad. Run through your Ellison Machine. Repeat until you have the desired amount of snow flakes and banner flags.
Using mounting squares, layer three snow flakes on top of each other, offsetting them slightly.
Cover the mounting square with a wooden button and a dab of hot glue.
Attach each layered snow flake to a banner flag with more hot glue.
Use baker’s twine (or ribbon) to connect each flag, and hang in your home!
I want the party decorations to stand out from our everyday holiday decorations, so I pulled out my Ellison Die Cutting Machine and made some vellum snow flakes using my Snow Flake #3 Die. I made enough to layer 3 on each section of the banner. There are 6 pieces? banners? flags? on the banner, so I made 18 snow flakes. I used tiny mounting tape squares to give each snow flake layer some dimension, and I hot glued a wooden button on the top snow flake. This added a rustic look AND covered the mounting square, so win win! Next, I hot glued each layered snow flake to a banner flag.
The banner flags were hole punched and I strung a double line of baker’s twine through the holes.
I love the way it looks on our fire place mantel, but I have another plan for it for my niece’s birthday party!
