Christmas Banner by Angela

Hi Everyone
Our DT Gal Angela has created a fabulous Christmas Banner to share today.
I hope you enjoy it.

Angela said - when making this banner, it comes together easily, if you pre cut all your pieces before you start the assembly.

With your Sizzix Ornate Frame #3 pre cut:  
      9 sizzix frames in red cardstock,
      9 sizzix frames in red glitter cardstock
      9 sizzix frames in cardboard.
With Nestabilities Circles pre cut:          
     9 x 80mm aqua circles
     9 x 48mm aqua circles
     9 x 45mm circles
Pre cut 9 strips of black cardstock and with the rosette die make 9 rosettes.
With the rosette die use the circle die to pre cut 9 red glitter circles.

Adhere the red cardstock and the glitter cardstock to the cardboard to sandwich them all together with the cardboard in the middle.  This gives a nice sturdy banner to work with.

Make all your rosettes and adhere together on the large Aqua die cut circle.

With foam tape, attach your smaller Aqua circle to your larger Aqua circle and top with the small glitter circle.  Top with the Thickers alphas (or any alpha of your choice)
Adhere your smaller circles to the rosettes and then the whole rosette embellishment to the Sizzix frame.

With the Crop-a-dile punch small holes in the each corner of frame.
Thread through red ribbon.
In between each ribbon tie small knots to separate banner letters.

Additional Materials
Cardstock colours - Red & Black
Thickers: Rootbeer Float - white
