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
