I made a "thing"

LOL, I'm more of a card girl for sure and I don't make a whole lot of 3D items...or "things" as I call them. I have these awesome Reindeer Games and Reindeer Pun sets though and wanted to make something to include several jokes and punchlines all in one project. So check it out....I made a banner!



Now truth be told, I was going to make a joke "book" for my daughter or for my oldest niece, but....and this is why I don't normally make "things"....I didn't plan ahead very well and forgot to leave a place on all four pages where I could attach a ring. Duh! So hmmmmm, what to do? Instead I decided to make a banner! I've never made one of these before....but it was fun stringing it all together.

The above photo shows the banner all strung together with the jokes on the front. On the back is where I put all the punch lines.



I used lots of ribbon and gave a bunch of things dimension with Pop-up Glue Dots, on both the front and back.

Here are close-ups of each one (front and back)...













That's it for me today. Have yourself a WONDERFUL Saturday!

....and guess what? I'll be back on Monday to show you ANOTHER "thing".....oh my, again something other than a card.....it just might SNOW....here in PA....in September! LOL!
