artful thursdays #9.....wonderland paper banner tutorial



in celebration of tim burton's new movie coming out tomorrow i made a little paper banner to celebrate wonderland...
well, that and my college daughter wanted a tiny crepe paper banner to hang in her dorm that looked like spring.
here is the alice in wonderland photo i used for my color inspiration.



i started with: stack of vintage papers, crepe paper streamers, string, stickers, letter stamps, ink, glue.


step #1. cut out a pile of paper diamonds and glue them to crepe paper.

step #2. fold the paper diamonds in half and cut the crepe paper border with zig zag and scallop scissors.


step # 3. using alphabet stamps and black ink stamp the letters for 'wonderland' on flower stickers and attach to each paper triangle.


step # 4. fold the triangles over a length of vintage baby yarn and glue in place.



step # 5. cut a piece of black and white striped crepe paper and wire into a little rosette. (rosette tutorial here)



step # 6. wire the rosette and a piece of ribbon to the end of the yarn.


step #7. glue a tiny applique to the center of each crepe paper rosette.

i hope to invite a little more wonderland into my studio... cross your fingers i can get tickets for this weekend, julie

Julie, this is such a great idea. I am having a Mad Hatter Tea Party for my dotters birthday and I will have to make one of these. I suggest going to the Scera to see the movie. Matinees are $4 and they rarely sell out. Have a great weekend.

I love the black & white, I think it gives it the finishing touch. And fantastic to use the picture as inspiration.

I'm wondering though, how do you store all your papers? And how do you know where to find them when you go looking? Mine are in bundles and boxes and stashed in corners all over the place.

Julie - this is amazing. I absolutely adore the black and white crepe paper - where did you find that?

Funny -because I was thinking of making a banner for next weeks project but perhaps will pick something new.

Good luck with tickets to the movie this weekend. Can't wait to see it too. I love Tim Burton and especially Johnny Depp..yummie :D
