Not Xyron...But Should Be!

It's Day 2 of the 
NOT XYRON, BUT SHOULD BE
Pinterest inspired collection of projects

**Visit Beth's Blog each day this week for a complete viewing of projects**

My inspiration piece came from Rebecca Cooper's Blog:
St Patrick's Day Bunting

Now, since St. Patrick's Day has all ready passed for this year, I decided to turn
my banner into a good luck charm
For the base of the banner, I used a burlap paper by DCWV and a 3.5"W X 4.5"H banner die
by My Favorite Things.  Next, using my personal cutting machine and Cambria font, I cut
the lettering from a cream cardstock, ran each through the 3" Sticker Maker and then attached
to the center of each burlap panel.  Three of the panel were embellished with a trio
of premade flocked shamrocks that I had on hand, and some felt flowers by Jillibean Soup.


I cut two 3" strips of green ribbon for each panel.  I adhered a High Tack Adhesive Dot
to one end  of the ribbon and then folded in half to form a loop.

The loops were then attached to the back of each panel with another 
High Tack Adhesive Dot.  Just be sure to keep the loops wide enough to accomodate
the ribbon that will be strung through for hanging.
I wanted a nice finish to the banner, so I die-cut a backing for each panel from 
cream cardstock.  I applied adhesive to one side of the die-cuts using the 9" Creative Station
and attached to the back of the burlap paper.

Thanks for joining me today with this Pinterest-Inspired-Creation!

Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
