I am happy to say that I am loving this “fall” so far in Denver. Last weekend it was still in the 90s. I know the temperature drop is coming soon like this Saturday in fact. I will take a warm sunshine filled afternoon and a cool crisp refreshing evening anytime though. Last weekend my husband and I celebrated our 11th year anniversary and headed up to the mountains to go hiking and see the color change. I thought I would share a couple pics to help set the mood for fall.
- Book pages
- Scrap paper, card stock, etc for the template
- Printer paper
- Hole punch
- Jute, ribbon, rafia, etc.
Step 1: I started out playing around with some fonts. I ended up choosing Arial Black in 300 size font. I printed each letter out and then put a book page on top of the letter and held it up to the light to find the best positioning of the letter. Then I taped the book page on to the printer paper over the previously printed letter and printed it again, this time the letter would print on the book page. I suppose I could have just printed straight on the book page, but I probably would have had to adjust my printer for the smaller paper size etc, and figured this was just easier and faster for me. I repeated this step for all the letters.
Step 2: Next I used some card stock to create a template for the banner. I played around with my measurements and ended up with a template 4 x 4 3/4 inches that fit perfectly for the size of the letter and the size of the book page. Once I had my template I positioned it over each book page, traced it and cut it out.
Step 3: For the holes punches I positioned mine about 3/4 inches from the top and 1/2 inch from the sides. I punched the holes in the template. Then I placed the template on top of the book page, and punched holes in the book pages using the holes in the template as a guide for the holes for the book pages.
Step 4: Once all the book pages were punched I threaded the jute through the holes. Now here it is hung with my Fall Display 2015.
