Autumn Decorative Banner

I love using my papercrafting supplies to decorate my home for the season. This banner takes just less than an hour and you can enjoy the finished results for an entire season.

Here's what you do:

Cut the burlap sheets into 4" x 6" panels. Cut one long end of them into a notch.


Punch a hole on the top edges of the panels using the crop-a-dile.

Optional: Add some machine stitching on the inside edges of the panels.  I just did it to secure the burlap in place since burlap tends to fray.

Cut the blocks of words and accents using the cut files and die cut machine.

Adhere the word blocks onto white cardstock using Mini Dots. Trim the excess.


Add pen stitching on the inside of the oval cut.

Adhere all of the paper accents onto the center of the panels using Glue Squares.


Decorate each panel even more with leaves and flowers using Mini Dots and Permanent Dots.


Add the pearls on the panels.

Connect each panel together using some crochet thread. Add a long piece of trim on each end to hang the banner up.


Tip: Use Glue Dots® Flexible Hang Tabs to hang the banner up temporarily.
