Last week, a customer purchased the old orange tool box that I showed you recently with the word "HOME" on the front of it, but she also wanted the word "AUTUMN" added. I didn't have a stencil to match that word,so the fonts would have been to different. I suggested we go a different route instead and I created an itty bitty banner that she could hang from inside the lid, or any other little space she wanted.
Using banners this small, you can create petite vignettes in lots of little spaces throughout your home and change them easily as the seasons change without a lot of fuss. You can whip them out pretty quickly as well.
I have very few spaces inside my home for larger banners, but I can think of lots of little nooks
where a miniature banner like this would create a small "moment" within a vignette.
I used a shaped paper punch to cut out the pieces, but you could also just cut a triangle shape from cardstock to use as your template. Since these pieces were much smaller than normal banner pieces, I used a smaller hole punch for the twine to be strung through, but you could also just punch a hole with a needle with the twine already in the needle. If using really old paper, make sure to use hole reinforcements on the back so they don't tear.
Generally, I use ink pads to make banners, but this time I just dabbed a rag in some paint and lightly tapped over the stencil to make the letters (dab some of the paint off on a paper plate, so there's just a little on your rag).
Hope your day was filled with special, "small moments".
