Holiday decor with Kimber McGray!

Holiday decor with Kimber McGray!

With the upcoming holidays, I broke out some supplies and starting creating some new decor for the house. This year I decided I wanted to add something to my Christmas card holder that hangs in my hall way. 

For this project, I used a set of the new Jillibean Soup stampables, the chalkboard flags. These chalkboard flags are nice because they are very light-weight and easy to punch holes in them with the We R Memory Keepers Crop-o-dile.

To start this project, I punched holes in the corners of all of the flags so I could string them on some twine when I was finished.

Next, I used a Uniball Signo white gel pen to create a simple border on each flag. I like the Uniball Signo pen because it writes very smoothly and shows up nice and dark on the black background.

Since I want to use this banner for more than Christmas, I decided to use chalk or my soapstone chalk from Crate & Barrel. I like the nice point on this chalk.

As you can see, I didn't like the 'A' I created on one of the banners, so I simply wiped it off with a soft cloth and re-drew it.

To finish the project, I strung the chalkboard flags on some kraft twine and tied the finished banner on my card holder.

Ta-da!  Super easy!
