Hooray for flag banners!

Just the other day, I was joking that one day I'd look back in our scrapbooks & say, "Oh yeah, that's when I was loving flag banners," because every other page in the scrapbook would have them on there in some way, shape or form. LOL! But how can you NOT love them? I, for one, was pretty happy to see that there were flag banners in the new My Friend Birdie line and have used them in many ways.
Just a small banner at the top corner helps to balance out the design on this page...
On this next one, I cut out the flags to use them as the sun's rays & then I added a mini banner to my journaling spot...


Who says you can't make a flag banner a clothes line? I'm also a bit addicted to my punches lately. That will be another thing I say to myself as I'm looking through scrapbooks in the future... "Oh & that's when I LOVED my punches!" I used punches to make my tree, the fence & even the bottom of my dress...

You don't have flag banner paper? No problem! I used my star punch & some bakers twine to make my own flag banner with the Blueberry Hill line. I'm LOVING the bright & bold color combo in that line. (And I really LOVE the clouds & suns, too!) So FUN!

Happy creating & have a GREAT weekend!

Hugs...
