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!
