Name banner for the boy’s room

We have been busy…I have much to share and will soon, but first here is a little project I worked on last night while watching TV with my hubby (I have a hard time just sitting and watching TV, I am always doing something else too, whether it is laminating school printables, or knitting, or things like this. Remember I mentioned that I was working on redoing the boy’s room with a whole coral reef/under the sea kind of theme? We got the ocean wave-like bedding last week and I will share more about that in another post.

I started with name banners to hang over their bedroom window. I used two types of scrapbook cardstock. One with ocean waves, and the other with simple stripes to bring in some more colors, other than blue. Both have a kind of glittery 3D look to them which does not come out very well in the pictures, unfortunately.

Punched two holes per letter along the top of all the letters using a single hole punch, and then strung them together using some glittery blue ribbon.IMG_4129 [800x600]
