Hello & welcome! Thanks for visiting today. Its a fun day because the Go-to Gals are teaming up again for another fun blog hop! We are celebrating the release of the new issue of Paper Crafts Magazine's Holiday Cards & More Vol. 7 by sharing projects that you can create using photos.
And don't forget that you can find inspiration for your holiday projects all week over at Paper Crafts Connection as they celebrate Holiday Cards & More Week!
In the issue you will find an awesome section on photo cards, so we thought it would be fun to expound upon that and show you a few other things that you can create using your photos.
I love banner garland on Christmas trees. So I decided to create one for our family tree with photos. I'm always putting photo ornaments on it so I can remember what my girls look like each year during the holidays. So I thought... what better way to add photos than as a banner? That way I get to add more than what one single ornament will hold! And the best part is that I can add to it year after year, making the garland longer as our family ages together.
To create the garland, I simply printed vertical photos as 2"x3" prints and die cut them with Spellbinders™ Nested Pennants. The cardstock behind the photos was cut with the Nested Lacey Pennants. To create the banner without a die cutting machine you would cut your photos with a banner shaped pattern, mount them on colored cardstock and trim around edges with scalloped edge scissors. Then stitch along tops of banner pieces with a sewing machine.
