Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge - Banners

I am loving the challenges at Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday.  This week the challenge is banners.  Banners are so very popular now they are seen on cards, designer paper, layouts, parties, etc.  I think a banner can fit any event.

What did I make?

My project for banner week is an altered lunchbox tin.  My original thought was to alter a tin to use for individual family members favorite holiday/birthday recipes.  Each would have their own index card divider where a list would generated to include such things as their favorite birthday cake, or their favorite Christmas Eve meal.  The recipe would be hand-written and placed behind each divider.  I say hand-written as one of my most treasured items is a recipe for Pumpkin Bars in my Dad's handwriting.  He has now been gone for 10 years.  I remember the day I thought I had lost that recipe and was beside myself.  Once found it is now safely tucked away.

Most of the materials used to alter the lunchbox tin were from my stash:
  • Cardstock, designer paper, fabric, ribbon, brads/bling:  Stash
  • Flower:  Made by me
  • Inks:  Memento Rich Cocoa, Tim Holtz Distress Stains in Forest Moss and Vintage Photo
  • Canvas Banner: Cut from Claudine Hellmuth Studio Sticky-Back Canvas
  • Rub-On Banner:  Hambly Screen Prints - Banners/Pennants - Antique White
  • Stamped/Die-cut Banner:  Taylored Expressions

My third creation for the Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Design Team. I hope you enjoy and are inspired to join us each week.
