Create Banner

When I found out about the March Dust It Off Challenge at Scrap Our Stash, my first thought was to use my Fasenator, but I thought that I had given it away long ago. So I was going through my "old stuff" box to see see what I could use, and guess what? I found my Fasenator! Now what was I going to do with it?

I was making a banner as a gift in a swap. So I used the Fasenator as the way to attach the banner together. I had some of the decorative staples and just slid the ribbon under each side and tied knots. I learned alot about my Fasenator, and it has since earned it's spot back on my tool shelf! I'm not so sure it won't get dusty again though!

I used my Cricut Storybook cartridge for the letters and used my Gypsy to alter some of the shapes for the letter backings. Both the hot pink ribbon and the light pink scalloped oval were distressed with my mini mister filled with water and then scrunched up. I inked around the edges with Close to My Heart Bubblegum stamp pad.

If you would like to take the March Challenge. See all the details HERE!

Cute banner. I've never heard of that tool you used, but I'm sure you'll find some more uses for it.
