Easy Christmas Banner

Remember this easy and inexpensive banner I made last year?

I made another type, this year. 
In less than 15 minutes - with items I had on hand.

No one else is the entire world needs a new camera as badly as I do.  Santa - can you hear me?


Here is an easy tutorial, if you are interested.  This project would be perfect for kids between the ages of 8 and 15.

Items needed:
Card stock
hole punch
cheap jute twine
ink for stamps
15 minutes

1. Cut the cards - I used a paper cutter and cut each one 4-1/4" in length.
2. Stamp the cards.

3. Punch two holes in the top of each card.
4. Thread the jute twine through the holes.

5. And hang. 

It is actually quite cute, whether you can tell from my photos, or not.
Someone needs to change a few lightbulbs.

Here is a photo I took with the lights off - hoping for a clearer photograph.

And one last attempt.....

Enjoy your last week of Christmas!

my speed when

daughter who I
now go to when I
don't GET how
something is done!
LOVE your new

full of JOY, just

painting says.
