Fall Letterboard | Add a Banner!

Hello, hello! Happy Thursday!

As we move from summer into autumn, there’s been a bit of redecorating going on around here…and one of my very favorite new pieces to use in my home is Heidi’s brand new BLACK Letterboard!

It’s so sophisticated and clean…and perfect for the fall holidays.

I decided to use mine to express my feelings for one of fall’s staples…pumpkin spice.

To dress up my board just a bit, I also decided to add a banner to my board – using letters cut with the We R Memory Keepers Alphabet Punch Board.

This board is absolutely incredible. You can cut every single letter in the alphabet using just this board and pieces of paper cut to 3″x 5″.

I know.

It’s unbelievable.

But true.

I cut some of my favorite patterned papers from the Crate Paper Carousel Collection down to 3″x5″ and got to work punching my letters.

Then I collected all the letters I’d need for the rest of my board.

Next, I ran my punched letters through my We R Memory Keepers Stitch Happy Sewing Machine to create my banner.

I LOVE that I can use baker’s twine in this machine!

Once my banner was finished, I attached it to my Letterboard using some of the asterisk pieces from the letter kits.

Then I started adding my Letterboard letters.

This San Serif Alpha kit is my favorite!

And finally, my board was done!

I’ll bet you thought I was going to sing the praises of this flavor…nope.

It’s not my favorite.

I LOVE the way the banner adds just that little something extra to my Letterboard.

Now to think of something to do for Halloween…

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I hope I’ve inspired you to grab those Letterboards and get decorating!
