Teresa Collins eBosser 'In Time for the Holidays' Blog Hop!



Hey everyone, welcome to my blog! I hope you are enjoying all of the fun projects along the way!! I am sharing with you my advent banner using the TcEbosser and pieces from the Teresa Collins collection Santa's List! You can see some of my supplies above: The Teresa Collins Ebosser and Stars embossing folder (sold separetly), star shaped dies & scalloped die cuts (spellbinders), side b of the music notes paper, Packaging from collection I had saved, sequins, washi tape (shown below), Doilies, white paint, ribbon and music sheets.
The first thing you will want to do is run all of your tags through the machine using the Star embossing folder. I then cut the bottoms into banners and painted around all of the edges in white. Which is totally optional but I love the look of a bead of white paint around the edges of paper. 
Then I cut out all of my stars using a star die and I cut through EIGHT SHEETS at once!! I love how strong this machine is!!
I never throw away pretty packaging. I had a lot left over from kits I had made and I just knew I would find a use for them! I cut out the bottom left where it says Christmas using a scallop die with the machine. Then for the upper left where the Santa logo is I just used a small circle punch. 
I used another die and cut 25 of them using the machine and white card stock, then added the numbers from the side B of the music notes paper from the collection.
To start your assembly of your tags alternate between washi tapes along the left edges of your tags.
Add your scalloped circles (yes, I painted around them too!) then add a strip of your washi tape.
Add your star music notes (and yes, I painted around them too!!) let your stars hang off of the right edge. Then add your layered numbers to the left of your stars. 
Next, cut your doilies in half and add them to the back of the left side. Then add your santa's using pop dots overlapping your numbers and stars. To finish them off add a couple of sequins and add a little white ribbon bow to the top.

I added them to a thin white ribbon then hung them above our chimney. 


I hope you enjoyed the project!! I know my family is liking the new addition to the mantle this year!

  2. WOW! Love your banner! Such pretty paper and I love the bead of white paint around the edges! It really makes them stand out. The Ebosser looks and sounds like a machine I could really use! So hoping that I win it!! I injured myself earlier this year and lost the use of 3 fingers and using the crank machines is very difficult! The Ebosser would solve that problem! Fingeres crossed and eyes squinted shut real tight making a wish! LOL TFS!
