FALL Banner.....{Watch us Wednesday w/ TKJ}

Good Morning everyone!
I am so happy to have my project spotlighted over at The Kraft Journal 
for our Watch us Wednesday post

So for my inspiration I thought I would make a FALL Banner using products from The Kraft Outlet along with lots from my stash....Here is it, hope you like it!

(click on the pictures to make them larger)
What do you think??? I wish you could see it in person, the texture with all the fabrics and embellishments really make this one fun banner!
For my banner I started out using 4 of the Mini Canvas Triangles and die cut using wool felt from my stash the circles, letters and leaves, all using My Creative Time dies.
Below are close-ups of each of the panels....again click on them to bring them up bigger 

Once all my pieces were die cut and hot glued to the canvas triangles, I took some buttons from my stash and added some Natural Hemp Cord to each of them.They were tied in double bows, with one bow snipped to add some extra pieces to the bow...looks kinda fun doesn't it???
Finally to finish my banner, I took a Memo Pin and added some words from the Chit Chat Seasonal Word Stickers. I can not get enough of that sticker set....LOL!
I did add some eyelets to the corners of the banner pieces and then threaded some thick hemp like rope through the it is all ready to hang! 

 So there you have it....
my inspiration for this Watch us Wednesday.
I hope you have enjoyed my project and will play along with our current challenge.
As always I have linked all the supplies I used from The Kraft Outlet throughout my description.  If you have not checked out the store yet....make sure you do! There is so much available, the prices are so reasonable and shipping is super fast!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT Wednesday!
