Getting a Little Grungy and using some Recycled Packaging......

Hi,   Over at Inspiration Emporium our Monthly challenge is to use some sort of Packaging in your Project.  I have wanted to make a banner for a Looooooong Time!!  I just got these Fun Spellbinders Dies and I started Playing!  I used the clear plastic packaging from my Nesties on top of all the Banner Triangles to preserve this banner a little more.  I backed the Triangles with Chipboard from my paper packs and used pop tabs for the loops on the back for the ribbon to go through...... Here is a Pic of the banner hanging over our Fireplace. And then some close ups of the Individual Banner Flags.... Sorry the Photo's are not real good it was really hard to photo without hanging.....













Love that Hubby Drinks Monsters and they have Green Tabs.....
