Find a silhouette you like. Do your own free hand trace. I usually have one side I like over the other-so I draw a line through the middle- cut out the side I like and use it to trace the other side
I then cut out my chipboard to a little bigger than my template. Did you know cereal boxes are a great source of chipboard?
Now cut your favorite Graphic 45 Couture papers from the 12x12 pad to the size of your chipboard
Run your paper through your Xyron 5 Inch Creative Station
Trace your templates out on the back and cut out
Ink those edges. I am using Donna Salazar Mixed Media Chox in Bluejay
Use your scraps to make some straps- optional
Use Xyron High Tack Tape to attach straps and get ready to start embellishing!
Don't worry if the tape is all wonky as you go around curves it will flatten out when you add trim
I used some brads to create my corseted look on this one
For heavier trims I used hot glue
For the mini clothespins I sprayed them with Colorbox Spritzers in Mudslide
I chose some Vintage buttons and hot glued them on
I decided to add some last minute embellishments adding some Graphic 45 Couture Chipboard tags and twine
I added my tags, then attached to another piece of twine to make the banner
Here are some pics for you!
