Thankful Banner | DoubleClick Skittles Challenge #35

Welcome to week #35 of DoubleClick Skittles Challenge! This week's theme is about Thanksgiving!

I really wanted to make a banner to hang on the wall, but then I decided to go for something a little smaller. I made an accordion style banner that could stand on a shelf on my hutch in the dining room. Then after Thanksgiving it would be easy enough to store.

 Mostly for the banner I was able to use scrap cardstock. Except for the base of the banner, I needed a full sheet of cardstock.

I stamped different colored leaves and added to the banner. I used orange and yellow Skittles to match.
Tied the top with gold ribbon and baker's twine. Added faux stitching to the letters to pop them out!

I made my banner with my Cricut Explore. 
I went into my images and found a tag I liked, copy and pasted it eight times. I sized them to approximately 3.75, then I welded the first four tags together. The second four before I welded, I needed a tab to attach to the other four to attach the two pieces together. I found a rectangle image, sized it appropriately, and welded my last four tags with the rectangle. The (rectangle) tab will be need adhesive to attach the two, together. I used the red strip tacky tape,
I also made eight tags at 3.5 and eight at 3.25 to layer.
The letters were cut at 2.5. Some trimming was needed. I hope this makes sense if you are wanting to make this. Email me if more directions are needed.
