I received a super fun box of goodies from the new Amy Tangerine Plus OneAmy Tangerine Plus One paper craft collection. The Plus One collection was the top selling signature line released in Winter 2014 and actually sold out in most stores and online. Luckily, I have all the details for you to get your own goodies!
I received so much cute stuff, but my all time new favorite had to be the teeny tiny mini washi tape!
The great thing about having supplies all from the same line is whatever you make is essentially fool proof. However you put together your items, they are going to turn out great because everything coordinates beautifully.
This collection was perfect for my spring decorating. Typically I choose a muted palette of pastels, but this year I want bold and bright. I don’t really do much decorating between Christmas and spring, so my house has seemed a little dull the last few months. We had a mild winter in Arizona (unlike much of the rest of the country), but it was so dry! Everything is so dead and brown. I am grateful some of my green plants are finally making an appearance again this year.
To make your own spring banner you will need:
Step one: Start by cutting out your banner pieces (2 1/2″ x 4″). For this banner, you will need (6) six banner pieces.
When cutting out banner pieces by hand, I like to make a template first. I will still use my paper trimmer to cut the rectangle, but the template makes quick work of cutting the notches on the bottom of the banner pieces.
Step two: Next, cut the rectangles to go on the banner pieces. I cut mine to be 2″ x 2 1/2″. Again you will need (6) six pieces.
Step three: Using your embroidery kit and additional embroidery thread you will embroider the letters S – P – R – I – N – G onto your rectangles you cut in step two. One letter per rectangle.
These stencils are very easy to use. Simply line up your stencil with your paper and punch holes in the guides with the included punch.
Backstitch using your stencil as a guide as you go.
The stencils have a place to add a coordinating color on the inside of the letter, so I added that as well.
Step four: Attach your rectangles to your banner pieces using the adhesive of your choice. Embellish each rectangle with some super tiny washi tape. Isn’t it so fun?
Step Five: Punch two holes on either side of the top of the banner pieces. Thread your baker’s twine through the holes. Tie a simple knot on each end to keep the banner pieces from falling off.
I am going to hang my banner on my front table that I decorate as my faux mantel. I haven’t added everything to it yet, but I will be sure to show you the completed table when I am finished!
