Our All Saints pennant banner

This is a slight twist on our paper-saint parade from last year.

Last week, when I was printing my saints from Paper Dali, there were some technical difficulties with the downloads. So, not having any patience to wait for the problem to be solved, I did what Vee tells everyone not to do. I simply printed the jpgs from within her posts. This gave me smaller saints, but I had an idea!

I trimmed each saint sheet and gave them to my kids to color them. Then I stapled the colored saints onto a long ribbon. The result is something like gas station pennants! A good idea for next time would be to print on a light colored paper, instead of plain white.

Our finished saints pennant banner is now hanging on the fireplace mantle. Enjoy, and Happy All Saints Day!

    (laughing) Niiiice. I like the “I did what Vee tells everyone not to do” comment. (laughing again) I just say that because I know the pictures will come out itty-bitty or cut off. But this was an awesome work-around the whole problem of Paper Dali downloads … Very clever, Evann!

    And the banner looks lovely! It’s very pretty. Thanks so much for posting and sharing, my friend!

    Blessings galore.
