Tea in the Craft Room # 7 - Merry Christmas Banner

Pick a tea cup and make yourself comfortable.

Perhaps you would like this colorful Royal Albert cup?
This bonnet planter lady looks like a cup of tea is just what she needs after  a day of Christmas shopping.

Today I want to show you a banner I made a few years ago.

 I love the sparkle and festive colors.

I gathered some chipboard letters, a length of garland, some pink and blue card stock, a box of tags I'd bought on clearance, and some medallions I made from printed out vintage images.  A hole punch, some gold cord, glue and small scissors.

There is a television in my craft room and I put on a classic Christmas movie for company.

Holiday Hi-jinks. Witty Repartee. Period fashion and furnishings. Period Christmas decorations. 
I love Sassy Old Movies set during the Christmas Season.

A quiet afternoon in my craft room with a simple project, a pot of tea, and a classic movie? 
Yes, please!

  1. Your banner us very charming! I'd like to sort through the pretty tags, enjoying them the same way you'd browse a shelf of library books in the craft section!

  2. I want that "shopping lady" planter. She is too cute! Merry Pink Saturday!

  3. I love this vintage banner and the whole idea of tea in the craft room--my happy place for sure. Are you familiar with October Afternoon? They have a wonderful vintage paper and ephemera line that looks like this style. "Under the Tree" is this year's Christmas line. Hope you are having a great weekend!

  4. Thanks for sharing your wonderful ideas, Susan! I'm really delighted to see that you're prepared for Christmas:) I'm thinking of a movie and can't make up my mind what to choose to watch this evening. Perhaps, The Thin Man:)
    With love,
    Samantha Grass

  5. Susan, I didn't know you had a Christmas blog. How delightful!! Your banner is very fun. Love paper crafts. And Christmas movies. I'm planning on watching some while I do my Christmas cards in the next couple days. Love Christmas in Connecticut.

  6. I love Christmas banners and yours look so festive! Merry Christmas! Hugs, Poppy
