A lot of the embellishments I picked up from the $1 Store. It's a great way to embellish and cost effective. I topped the top of these Birthday Bash Banners with silver garland that have wee stars all over it! I found "HAPPY NEW YEAR" necklaces for $1 and cut them up. Each banner has a word and 3 together say "HAPPY NEW YEAR". The stars attached at the bottom are from the same necklace.
I picked up these silver snowflakes, 6 for $1. A great embellishment!
I embossed the black shimmer paper with Tim Holtz clock embossing folder. I need this set! LOVE IT! I cut the letters from Sophisticated (my favorite font) in silver shimmer paper.
I made them into 3 small banners with the 2 snowflake banners on either end of "NEW". I made this banner with a little extra bling. To match the home it is going too. This is where I will be spending New Years with my family.
BLACK AND GOLD "2012" BANNER
My 2nd banner I wanted to do in golds. I also wanted it to simply say 2012. The numbers are cut from Sophisticated and popped up on dimensional.
I added a fluffy gold garland with stars for the top. Again embossing with the TH Clock embossing folder, I embossed this time gold shimmer paper. Then lightly distressed Walnut stain to add some depth. It really helped to make it look less washed out.
I cut and layered this chandelier from Sophisticated. Then I coated with Dazzling Diamonds and outlined with black glitter glue.
A pretty little gold banner.
A little note on how I store my banners. I fold them on to themselves and then clip them off. This way they aren't floating around and run the risk of tearing. Not to mention any embellishments won't go missing.
After you display store them like this and bag them up. If anything does happen to fall off then the bag will keep it from getting lost.
Do you have a New Years Tradition? What's your favorite way to spend it? I love spending it with my family especially in my jammies;)
