Easy Spooky Banner

The Spooky Banner shown in the Holiday Catalog is very easy to make. All you need is the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit (133507 - $19.95) and the Halloween Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit (132698 - $9.95). The cool part is once you have the build a banner kit, you'll get all the stencils you'll need to make many more banners and you'll have 12 more flags to work with from your initial investment. So you could make a "winter" and "spring" banner if you'd like. Then if you get the banner bug to make even more you'll just need the Banner Simply Created Kit (132699 - $9.95) to get more canvas flags.

The color theme is Pumpkin Pie, Summer Starfruit, Basic Black, so you'll need those inks and sponge daubers to do the stenciling. My cardstock strips are 2" wide with the matching banner notch cut by using the canvas banner as a pattern.

I jazzed up the banner with two more rosettes (they need to be 2" wide by 16" long, scored at 3/8" intervals) with the Witches Brew Designer Series Paper (132185 - $10.95), and added some buttons and googly-eyes to top it off.  Isn't it darling?
