I'm really liking the whole "banner hanging from the mantel" thing - it helps jazz it all up a bit. I know Valentine's Day is right around the corner (though I'm sure it's still Apr. 2011!) but I wanted a generic "Winter" banner right now- I'm just not ready to think Valentine's quite yet. I'm head over heels for the BoBunny Snowfall line so I had to run out and get some the other day JUST for this project. Unfortunately, I didn't see any BB accessories I liked for it but as I was heading out the door, I saw some Little Yellow Bicycle packs that I loved. Turns out, that if you "vintage" them up with a bit of distress ink, they go REALLY well with the Snowfall line. SCORE! I hung them from the bottom of the "tiles" with 2 jump rings each after reinforcing all punched holes with eyelets I've had hanging around forEVER.
Later Noted: It was pointed out to me that this could use some close ups and you know what? I agree. Thanks Samantha! I added 2 sets of photos- the 1st without a flash, the 2nd with. The 1st shows more detail, the 2nd truer colors.
