Hopping with Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon

The members of the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon's Design Team and the Tombow Design Team have joined together to create beautiful projects featuring different files & adhesives. If you came here from Jeanne's blog, you are in the right place.  If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit Lisa's blog. This week we are making projects that are using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Files and Tombow Adhesives.

It's all about a wedding here in the Fisher household. My oldest will be getting married next weekend and I knew these banner files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon would come in handy. I used the Simple Banners Shapes Cutting File and enlarged the short banners until it measured 2" in width to make my banners. I had a bunch of political junk mail from all the candidates running recently and used them for my base as they were a lightweight chipboard. I used Mono Adhesive Permanent to adhere the polka dot paper to the junk mail and then Xtreme Adhesive to adhere that to the burlap.

After cutting the burlap, I adhered pieces of a paper lace doily to the top of the banner pieces with Mono Adhesive Dots, then ric rac & jute bows with Xtreme Adhesive. Letters were cut with my Cricut using Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and adhered with Mono Adhesive Dots . (I thought that was an appropriate font since Kassy is a teacher Ü) I just taped the banner pieces to a string of jute so that they can be removed later and added to a scrapbook page.

The banner was then tied to 2 pieces of dowel that I cut to fit the basket. Be sure to watch my blog for another project using PPPR's banner file for another part of the wedding.
