S-u-M-m-e-r Banner

I made a Christmas banner with discarded CD's last December.  


Ever since then, I've been wanting to do something similar.  To be honest, I could do this with anything: Easter, Spring, Winter, Autumn, etc....etc....


This time, I turned it into a banner.  I used all the same steps (used cup to trace circle, distressed paper with ink, mod podged on both sides of soup can lid), but connected it with ric-rac.  I lovelovelove these banners and using something I would normally have thrown away.

Cute! How'd you punch holes in the lids?

That's a cute idea.

I have to make a banner for a RS activity and I've been stressing it, but I guess it doesn't need to be too hard, huh? Mine has to be 12 ft--what could I use for that?

This is SUCH an awesome way to upcycle CDs! I never know what to do with them and feel bad throwing them away. Very creative!

Great use of the old CD's - I wouldn't have known that's what you used if you didn't say so!
