Chiefs Banner

MY boys are HUGE sports fans, the middle and youngest anyway! You know how they say the nut doesn't fall far from the tree???
Well, my middle son, Brandon has a friend who bought a school bus that was reconfigured into a Tailgate Bus. A Chiefs bus, specifically. I need to get the boys to take a picture of it.
 Several weeks ago I found a set of PTI Boxy Banners Die's for a good price on eBay. I won the auction and just have not had a chance to use them.
So, I finally decided to make a Chiefs banner as a "bus-warming" gift ;)

I remembered to snap a picture as I was walking out the door to give it to them. The picture is horrible. Is is blurred, but you can see what it looks like:

 I used the largest die to cut burlap that I had adhered, with spray adhesive, to card stock. Then I used red felt to cut the layered piece. The plain circle from Limitless Layers: 2 1/2" was used to cut cream felt. I have an old set of Sizzix steel rule alphabet dies. I LOVE the font and the size. I used it to cut more red felt.
Then I took white canvas and dyed it yellow. I also adhered it to card stock and cut it with the "rick rack" edge of the  Banner Borders Die. I set eyelets I colored with a red sharpie and used a heavy string to hang it.
I was looking to keep it totally masculine. We have boys here! No girly stuff ;)

I told you last week Colin, my baby, is pledging Sig Ep at KU. They have an auction in the fall to fund scholarships to encourage good grades. I plan on making one in Crimson and Blue for the auction!

Thank you for looking at my blog!
