It has done my heart good to be cutting, gluing, and playing with ephemera again!
Working with lovely, old things makes me grin.
These kits were especially fun to make. I glued the wallpaper to the pennant pieces, and coordinated all the bits and pieces to go onto them. So, it felt like I was making one myself, minus the glue.
I lay out all of the elements as I would build the banner myself to make sure that everything needed is included.
Then, take a photo of my own layout, and another of just the piles of supplies. So that the person who purchases the kit can have a guideline and some ideas or mix it all up and create the banner however they like with their own sense of style.
There are plenty of coordinating goodies for mixing and matching.
For this batch, I made little nests for the labels. If the buyer wants to, they can snip the nest off the paper and glue it right onto their Easter banner.
Of course, as much as I like making kits, putting them completely together like this one is even better.
It looks like I've about reached the end of my Victorian Easter ephemera to cut up and use, but I have rolls and rolls and rolls of wallpaper, gardens of millinery flowers, buckets of rhinestones, and miles of trims.
Easter Banners might be finished, but Spring Time Banners are a possibility! I'll let you know if more kits are coming.
Because I am in an ephemera state of mind lately.
And thank you for all of the tart tin kit shopping! At this point, there are a couple left, but they are going fast. If you'd like one, please check here.
edit- all banners and kits are sold, thanks so much!!
