This year I had a lot of the 3×4 Project Life cards left over. When I am working on my album I try to use as many pictures as I need to to tell a story, which means I sometimes only use one or two of these a week. Thats ok, I’ve got plans for my left overs.

Here is my first project, an easy Christmas Banner. I have this rather large wall behind my couch that is screaming for some decoration attention. I had plans for some paintings for above the couch but the canvases were warped so I’m trying to figure out how to fix that. Anyway, when I looked at all my cards left over I thought what could be better than making a Christmas banner out of them. Then I’ll have some holiday decor that matches this year’s project life design.

It is really easy and only takes an afternoon to complete. You need, left over Project Life cards, a paint pen, and a sewing machine. I first chose all the designs I wanted to use and then laid them out making sure the colors flowed well from one card to the next. I then just free handed the phrase “merry christmas” on the cards with my paint pen. I had a white one on hand which worked well for most of the cards, you could also use a paint brush and acrylic paint if you don’t have a paint pen.

I then took the cards to my sewing machine. I added a blank card at the beginning and end and just sewed them in order, i left about 5 inches in between each card. And then used washi tape to hang it up above my couch.

I really like how it turned out and how it reflects our scrapbook from this year, I love it when things tie together like that! And I really enjoyed working on it as far as holiday crafts go it was pretty quick and relaxing. I hope you are ready for Christmas this week! I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone by.
