Happy New Year Pebbles Fans! Holly here from Ribbons & Glue sharing with you my Word of the Year Banner that I created for my craft room using the Pebbles Inc. DIY Home and Cottage Living collections and a We R Memory Keepers punch board.
Word of the Year Banner
With a New Year brings a New Beginning. I’m one of those people who are all about new beginnings and I also like to choose one word to represent my goals in the New Year. This year, I chose the word GROW. Of course, GROW can be interpreted in a variety of ways. I definitely don’t want to GROW out of my clothes or GROW out my hair but I do want to GROW positively in many areas of my life. This year, I really want to GROW to become a better wife and mother and most importantly, I want to GROW in my Faith and in my creativity. Creativity is a very important part of my life daily and focusing on growing what I love is a top priority to me.
To help remind me daily to GROW in areas of my life, I made a small banner to hang in my craft room. My craft room is where I spend a lot of my time daily so creating a banner that coordinates with my craft room colors is like giving a little gift to myself. To make the flag banner shape, I used the We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch Board.
I cut the base of the Banner Flag at 3 x 4 inches then layered the base with Cottage Living Honeycomb paper.
I trimmed out the letters G-R-O-W from Cottage Living Gallery Wall paper and adhered them on to the front of the Banner Flags.
The banner is strung along black and white twine and are clipped with DIY Home gold metal clips.
I love seeing my Word of the Year Banner as a daily reminder of how I hope to positively GROW this year in areas my life.
