Recently, I posted a shortened version of the The DIY Sharpie Art post to Home Talk. I was overwhelmed by the responses and shocked when one woman asked about my burlap banner. I tend to take for granted the simplest things. I look at the banner and think, "Ha! I cheated on that one!" The burlap was pre-made, I just did some zshooshing. (Is that a word?)
Using my pre-made banner as my guide I traced around it onto a piece of card stock. I cut my card stock about 1/2 smaller than my trace lines all the way around.
I used this smaller triangle to trace around for my book page triangles. Next, I typed out the word on a document on my computer, playing with fonts until I found one I liked. I have no pictures of this step but I penciled my letters freehand onto the page triangles and when satisfied with the results went back over them with a Sharpie pen. You could blow up the font size and trace it like I did with the DIY Sharpie Art...
Now, this could have been even easier., but I don't usually have bright ideas until I have done it the hard way first. If you want to, just purchase felt letters or scrapbook letters and apply or print letters onto your pages using your printer before cutting out your triangles.
I then attached the paper triangles to the banner with Loctite Mounting Putty. Nothing too permanent for this girl. I wanted to be able to change it up.
And, there you have it. Easy, relatively inexpensive, and easy to change based on the season! I know, everyone is on to Christmas... And it is just about time to change it up .....Happy decorating!
