Today I thought it would be fun to make a banner for my daughter's bedroom door.  I used some Country Drive 6x6 papers from Echo Park and then layered all of the Die-namics together.  I started with the Jumbo Banner Day STAX Die-namics as the base and then added the very fabulous Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and of course, Mini Circles Doily Die-namics paired with By the Letters Uppercase Die-namics for her name. 


I sewed the layers together, which you can see betting in the photo here, and tied all the pennants together with Buttercream Twine and buttons.

Please stop by the MFT Blog for more details on today's Teaser and a complete list of all the designers participating in today's Die-namics Feature & Pre-Release Pep Rally.

Here are the Die-namics I used today:
