Easter Banner with Guest Designer Arin!

Hello it is Arin Flynn here and am I excited to share my first project as a 2014 Samantha Walker Creative Team Guest Designer. I decided that I wanted to show how simple you can make a cute and bright spring banner just using one cut, some laser cut wooden pennants, linen, and a few other embellishments. This little guy was turned out just in time to greet Mr. Cottontail!
Hoppy Easter Banner Project 1 

 Let's "hop" right into how I did this. (A full supply list will be included at the end of this post). Heading over to the Silhouette Store, I found this cute Samantha Walker Bunny cut file. Once downloaded into my Silhouette software, I ungrouped the shape and moved the detailed layer off the page just keeping the silhouette of the bunny. I measured my wooden pennants and set the dimensions of my bunny.

Using a sturdy white cardstock, I cut ONE, yest I said it, ONLY ONE cut. This will be the template to trace onto the linen fabric. Can it get any easier than that?

 Once all the bunnies I wanted to add some character to each little guy and ran it through my Cuttlebug Embosser using Swiss Dot. It really gave it great shape and texture. Then I ran each bunny through my Xyon 5 inch Creative Station (any adhesive of choice will work) and set aside.

Using the smaller wooden pennants as a template, I traced, cut and added faux stitching to the linen fabric.

I ran the linen pennants through my Xyron 5 inch Creative Station (any adhesive of choice will work) and placed them onto the wooden pennants. Using hot glue I added some buttons and some fabric letters I had on hand.

Using some scrapbook paper I had on hand, I traced the larger of the wooden pennants, cut and set onto the base using my tape gun (any adhesive of choice will work) and inked the edges.


 Once all the bases and smaller pennants were done, I added the bunnies, the button tails with bows made of baker's twine and hot glued them to the bottoms of each bunny. I then used a large gauge needle and ran baker's twine through the tops of each pennants stringing them together and using the pre-punched holes at the guide.


 This project was not only super simple and easy to do, but there is something therapeutic about just simply tracing and cutting and with this bunny cut from Samantha Walker, it could not have been any easier.
