Joy Banner Frame

I love setting the dinner table and making it festive - for any occasion! But especially for holidays. We weren't home for Christmas Dinner this year, so I didn't have the privilege decorating the dinner table. BUT, for our convention this past summer, I created a few Christmas items to put at each place setting. Over the next couple of days I'm going to share them. I realize Christmas is over - sorry - but maybe you can keep these ideas in mind for next year, or change them up for a different holiday theme!

First up is our versatile Banner Frame.

This white chipboard frame features a 6" x 6" recessed opening for your photo or artwork. The surface can be stamped, inked, painted, or covered with paper! 


Inside the frame opening, I used the Yuletide Carol Paper with music notes in the background and added a title using our Gold and Black Glitter Paper, and added a Gold Bling Gem.


I used my Cricut Explore to cut out the title above and the "Christmas 2014" below. I love how easily the Explore cuts out small details. 


I also embossed the rose and edge of the paper with gold embossing powder! It's a cool technique! Simply use a sponge dauber to ink the edge of the paper with VersaMark ink, then sprinkle with gold embossing powder and heat set.


Would you like to recreate this project? Here is my Design Space file for the Cricut Explore. Help yourself and change it up however you want to suit your project!

I'll be back with more this week!
