Jen here with my inspiration for the Nautical Challenge! When the Ribbon Lady told us the theme of this challenge I was so excited- ideas started swimming through my head! And the ribbon she chose all works SO well!
So, I decided to do a nautical banner. I pulled out the very cool DCWV adhesive fabric stack. It’s 6″x6”, so I kept that as my top width & used my paper trimmer to cut the bottom narrower. I freehand cut the notch on the bottom. (I left the adhesive backing on).
I used Scor Tape to secure the ribbon (red/white stripe 365-2-14 and the navy grosgrain/satin edge 376-1-03) to the panel.
I used quick dry tacky glue to secure the ribbon at the top & bottom of the pennant, as well as attach the gold metallic chain/cord (348-14-30).
I used some washi tape on one end to thread the natural burlap cord (sp10) through the holes, tying a simple knot between each panel. My Crop-a-dile was ideal for punching the holes!
The letters were cut with my cricut using DCWV glitter paper. Yum!
There you have it! This is going to be such a fun challenge- I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!
