Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here today with some home décor for fall. It seems that I am always pulled towards creating projects for our house. Adding a personal and handmade touch is wonderful, but its also great to be able to add a trendy touch without breaking the bank. I mean, who can change all the pillows and blankets out all the time? But by using my We R Memory Keepers tools and some patterned papers, I can create a lovely piece of seasonal décor, and be a bit fashionable as well.
I began by using my Banner Punch board and that fantastic checkered paper from Pebbles new line, My Bright Life. I am seeing that black and white gingham everywhere, and I love it! The Banner Punch Board is a constant friend on my desk, making quick work of creating pendants that are the exact size and style I want.
After layering some other papers, die cut images, and ribbon, I started to create the leaf image from Copper Happy Jig Wire. The booklet that comes with the Happy Jig provides clear instructions for making the shapes.
After following the image and placing my pegs, I wrapped the wire around. The wire shapes come together easily. The dimension they add to a project is really cool!
Tip: I use a liquid adhesive to secure my wire shapes to my projects.
Another We R Memory Keepers tool that comes in handy when making banners is another on of my old favorites, the Crop-A-Dile. To punch the holes for the twine (used to hang the banner), simply stack all your pieces together and punch through every piece at once. No mistakes and no misalignment.
Do you decorate for the seasons? Where would you hang your fall banner?
