Shabby Chic "CREATE" Banner


Hello paper crafters.  Today I'm sharing a banner I created using a chipboard banner kit by Maya Road  .  I purchased mine from Hobby Lobby.




I purchased the chipboard letters from Hobby Lobby as well.  



I covered the inner, triangular pieces with tissue paper and dry brushed on white paint.  After painting the letters and scalloped part of the banner, I covered them with Aleene's Tachy Glue and then sprinkled with glitter.


Hope you are inspired to make a banner of your own!!
Have a great day!
Melisa
