My Craft Spot Release Party Day #2-Jar Full Of Christmas

Hi everyone! Welcome to day two of the My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party. Today we are sharing sneak peeks of the new stamp set Jar Full Of Christmas. Robin designed a darling stamp set that coordinates with the Jar Basics metal dies by My Craft Spot. Here is my project:
I made a banner using the Jar Basics metal dies. I decorated the banner with the new Jar Full Of Christmas stamp set. The snowflakes are cut using the Small Alphabet metal dies. 
 The *Let it Snow* sentiment is from the new Christmas Banner Sentiments stamp set. I stamped the sentiment on a banner from the new Ribbon Banners metal dies set.
The letters are from the George & Basic Shapes Cricut cartridge cut at 1.75". 
It's hard to tell in the picture, but I added some Stickles to the edge of the snow along the bottom. Just the extra touch the snow needed to help it *pop*.
I made hinges with washi tape to hold the banner together. The great thing about using washi tape is it stays flexible, so you can easily set the banner up how you like--back and forth accordion style or with a soft wave. I love this banner. Perfect for a mantel, hutch, or table. There are SO many possibilities with this project idea. TIP: the background paper was a little thin, so I added an extra layer of cardstock for stability.
That's it for today my crafty friends. :) Be sure to check out all of the other projects made by My Craft Spot's design team. Also, you'll want to leave a comment over at My Craft Spot's blog for a chance to win todays party prize.
