How to make a spring banner and a *giveaway!*

**Please scroll down for new posts!**

Banner
Some of you will remember this spring banner that I made a few weeks ago.

Banner
Two pink birds announce the arrival of spring. Well, I had enough supplies to make *two* banners, so I'm giving one away!

I'm also sharing how you can make your own spring banner using various decorations and phrases.





Come on over to Seasonal Delights for the easy step-by-step instructions!


This is the banner that I'm giving away today:
