WARNING: Lots of pictures.
Happy Tuesday before Thanksgiving! I almost didn't make it, but here's my Thanksgiving Banner, which will likely be gifted away later today. I was inspired by the Banner Blog Hop hosted by Ruthie a couple weeks ago and really wanted to make both a Thanksgiving and a Christmas banner. Originally, I was going to make the banner do double duty and have a Christmas greeting on the other side. That idea had to be abandoned once I decided to use eyelets, which are only pretty on one side. I've been working on expanding my selection of fall colors from just browns, oranges, and reds, which is why I chose the peachy/coral shade, along with the burgundy. Hope you like it.
It reads, "Give Thanks"
- Paper: Papertrey Ink colored cardstock and Recollections kraft cardstock. Each tile is 5.5" tall.
