It’s another banner!
Yes, I have been on banner overdrive lately. But come ON… how can you not love this fun bag/envelope banner? I used Pink Paislee’s awesome winter release, Snow Day, so I could use this countdown banner for Christmas, winter birthdays, and even Valentine’s Day.
This year I will be using it as a non-traditional advent calendar leading up to Christmas. My husband will get the even numbers and the little guy will get the odd numbers. I plan on filling each little envelope and bag with things like scratch tickets, candy, and knick knacks (for the husband) and stickers, animal crackers, and toy cars (for the boy). These bags have a pretty good amount of room so I can even get small books, socks (ooooh!), and a few larger things in there!
I made all the bags and envelopes myself out of muslin and burlap. There are six different styles. I left most of the raw edges unfinished because I liked the rustic look and because, well, I didn’t want to send myself to the funny farm by trying to make burlap look perfect!
On the right I folded the top of the pouch over and used three brads right through the burlap to fasten it over the ribbon.
Lastly, the pointed envelopes are simply looped over the top of the ribbon and clothespinned.
I love this banner.
