To make this fabulous Epiphany Crafts/Maya Road Banner:
1.) First, mist all of your banner pieces to your liking.
2.) Paint a few random Maya Road wooden buttons.
3.) Paint some Maya Road chipboard words.
4.) Let the painted items dry. Gather the rest of your supplies… the rest is a breeze
Assembling the banner:
1.) Use one of the misted canvas album pieces. Adhere a background piece of patterned paper and a hand cut out heart. Place an Epiphany Crafts epoxy heart and Maya Road button on your banner piece with a sticker sentiment. Place a Maya Road pin in the heart through the canvas.
2.) Use another one of the misted canvas album pieces. Adhere another background piece of patterned paper and a cut down journal card. Using some of your pre-made painted Maya Road painted buttons and Epiphany Crafts epoxy stars, sporadically place them around your banner piece.
3.) Use another one of the misted canvas album pieces. Adhere another background piece of patterned paper to the canvas piece. Adhere a sticker element at the bottom with your chosen Maya Road chipboard phrase and Epiphany Crafts star epoxy.
4. Use another one of the misted canvas album pieces. Adhere another background piece of patterned paper and a cut down journal card. Using some of your pre-made painted Maya Road painted buttons and Epiphany Crafts epoxy stars, sporadically place them around your banner piece. Tie a piece of twine around a Maya Road leaf pin and place behind one of the epoxies.
5.) Use another one of the misted canvas album pieces. Adhere a background piece of patterned paper and a hand cut out heart. Place an Epiphany Crafts epoxy heart and Maya Road button on your banner piece with a sticker sentiment.
6.) Use seam binding or other ribbon to tie the canvas piece together making a banner.
