Dance Banner

Dance Banner 
By Sue Smyth 

I love a good banner and using dies is a fantastic way to make
one as you get perfectly matching shapes for each 
This time I have made a pretty ballet banner
sure to dance it's way into any budding ballerinas heart.

Start by cutting 5 doily dies from white cardstock
then layer over top 2 different sized circles in patterned paper
and cardstock.
You adhere one layer with foam tape and wrap
fibres around the edge for a softer look. 

Then cut 5 Ballerinas from cereal box cardboard
and paint with gesso.
Dry off and adhere white glitter or crystalina Glitz N Glamour 

Attach each ballerina to the lace medallions and decorate 
with paper flowers and chip letters as desired.

To finish attach wide ribbon to the tops of each medallion 
and hang up.
I have tied a little extra ribbon in between each medallion 

Attach the ribbon to the back of the medallions and at
the top, so they each hang better.

Happy Crafting to you all
