Vintage Inspired Halloween Banner

I'm so excited to share with you my project for the Xyron and Core'dinationsPetaloo Blog Hop!

I wanted a simple yet unique banner to hang this Halloween and wanted to combine my love of vintage photos of children in costumes with a bit of autumn whimsy. 

Cut five triangles out of Core'dinations Vintage Collections Retro Mod Squad cardstock and sanded the edges. 

Cut Jillian Dot Assorted Pack by Core'dinations into 4"x 6" squares and sand the edges and front of paper using Core'dinations Sand It Gadget.
 After printing out vintage Halloween images, run the photos thoughXyron 5" Create-A-Sticker Max and adhere to the cardstock.

Punch holes through the triangle and rectangle papers and thread bakers twine through them. 
Tie Petaloo Crotchet Lace Fancy Trim in between photos and triangles. Tie a bit of bakers twine around the middle of the lace. Embellish with Petaloo Darjeeling flowers using Xyron High Tack Adhesive Dots

Add mini clothespins to the top of the banner and place "Happy Halloween" sentiment on the middle of the banner using Xyron adhesive dots. 
Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the Xyron and Core'dinations/Petaloo Blog Hop!
