OK so I have the coolest nieces and nephew!
Going to see my sister and her family this year (my first trip sans kids, ever!) was a blessed time of reconnection and remembering who Iiiii am!!
Teens these days have way more than they need... so I wanted to create a custom gift that matched their personalities... These MINI Name Banners were easy to travel with and they celebrate each of their style!
My family owns my heart... so it's fitting that the Hearts a Flutter framelits (#130159), my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439) and Big Shot Magnetic Platform (#130658) can create these oh-so-fabulous banners!
Don't waste paper!
Cutting the paper to be the dimension of the banner flag that you pick! The Magnetic Platform holds the framelit right where you want it and it will go through (up-to) 3 sheets of stacked Designer Series Paper for a quick creation!
My mini-me, baby niece owns my heart.... so creating her a banner in her favorite colors was easy and fun with our Eastern Elegance (#130131) Designer Series Paper. The Costal Cabana captured her heart... that and the BLING of our Silver Glimmer Paper (#124005)!
Adding these sweet punched Bitty Butterflies (#129406) show that she makes her Auntie's heart flutter!!
When I think of my awesome nephew... I see my son and how they remind me of one another. My son is following in his older cousin's footsteps with his love of Sports.. so capturing the look for my nephew was uber fun.
Our Modern Medley hounds tooth print reminds me of his Cool vibe. Layering Real Red card stock (#102482) for a POP on his name. Adding Basic Black card stock (#121045) mini flags stamped with the Versa Mark pad (#102283). Silver embossed (Silver embossing powder #109131 and our Heat Tool #129053) Great Sport footballs (#124307) to pick up his all-boy vibe (we don't have any paintball guns to stamp - lol).
My Classic Beauty niece is all over the Afternoon Picnic (#131390) for a girly-girl elegance. This will be perfect in her dorm room! Our (retired but so lovely) Vintage Flower Trim accented with Wisteria Wonder (#126985) ink for a coordinated and elegant look.
I A-D-O-R-E my Big Shot! Punching the letters out with our Typeset Alphabet Bigz creates a quick and easy project that has a great impact!
Tied together with our Whisper White Baker's Twine (#124262) for a stream-lined look. Every teen loves to see their name in lights... here these great kids have their own banner to celebrate who they are! Individuals and oh-so-awesome!!
