Christmas Time is Here!

Yes, in the States (or at least in Texas) we are a crazy bunch! We like to decorate for Christmas WAY too early! Some people even have decorations out before Halloween is over, and the radio stations have already started playing Christmas music. In part of my preparation for Christmas I made a Christmas Banner!

I played around with some fonts using Microsoft Powerpoint, and used one of the banner shapes for the background of each letter. 

Then I wrapped an index card in Christmas wrapping paper for the backing. I also got some ribbon and hot glued it around each letter for some extra pizazz. 

A few hole punches and stringing later... voila! My own Christmas Banner!

My next project is to make this cute Advent Calendar.

And last but not least, some Christmas Inspiration from Decomyplace

Please do! I would have attached the template I used, but silly me forgot to save it in my excitement to make it! But this way you can make it your own!!!
