Just go to Pinterest and search 'banners'...the banner inspiration is overwelming (and oh so joyful)!

I really like how the wood veneer shapes add dimension to layouts and how versatile they are. I really like the look of them in their naked state, but you can also change them up a bit with paper or ink. On this layout I mixed it up...some natural wood, some covered in paper, some embellished with a button.
And for this layout, I added in some stickers, the photo, and that cute button card from Crate Paper for a big banner stitched down across the page.
My hubby gave me an Instax camera for my birthday in January, so I'm having a lot of fun shooting pictures with that...and love how the little photos look used in projects. Such a fun size!
Here's a layout I created with some of my recent Instax photos and the wood banner pieces...
I covered the banner pieces with patterned paper from the Hip Kit, sanded the edges & 'strung' the pieces up with bakers twine...
I adore this Amy Tangerine paper that was included in the kit...
On this card I used a couple of the natural wood banner pieces behind the blossom as an accent & to add a bit more dimension (not really a banner...but thought I'd share another way I used the banner pieces)...
Thanks for stopping by, friends. Wishing you a banner of a day!
