Chalk Ah Lot Banner

There's a new challenge at Chalk Ah Lot which is re-purpose or recycle something with chalk. I choose to use the clear CD's that come on top of the large stack of CD's my department uses to burn patient images to take with them to other doctors or hospitals.

The base of the pennants is the clear CD with a red circle over the center. Oh wait I actually put some vintage red white and blue ribbon over the circle first. I used Stamp N Plus red powdered chalk on the heart in the pennant below.

The patterned paper is old and Idk who it's by. I embellished the banner with stickers by K and Co, a vintage bottle cap, corners by Making Memories {very old} and with a square sticker that I cut in half to use as corners by Sticko.

I die cut the letters out using my Cricut and the Art Philosophy cartridge. Each letter has three circles which I placed a red sequin into each. The largest circle's sequins has a rhinestone in the center.

All this is held together by some red, white and blue ribbon and ready for the summer to begin.

Thanks for looking.

Challenges: What's in a name? {C for Cricut}
