Spring Book Page Banner

Time to dress my ladder again.  I saw this idea at a Creations by Kara and knew I wanted to do something similar.
Instead of Easter eggs on the book pages, I went for 3-D flowers so I can keep this up as long as I want.
Kara provides you with a template for the banner pieces which I used.  For the flowers, I punched 3 pieces from paper.  I folded the first one twice and the second one three times (see below) leaving the third one as is.
 Using glue dots, I attached the three together to form the flower.
 I inked the edges of the banner pieces and also added some of my favorite 'distressing' stamps to age them even more.
I used double sided tape to attached the banners to twine and then used hot glue to add buttons to the flowers and the flowers to the banners.
 I made four banners and attached them to my ladder using clear push pins.

 A fun and easy project that could be adapted for any holiday or season!
