First Communion Banner

It's been 8 years since the First Communion Banner of 2005.  Yes, I recall it well.  I made the banner, and I placed our family name on it, rather than Ignatius' first name.  I had a sheep with cotton balls for wool.  It was clean, simple, and awesome.  It also scared Ignatius, and we had to hide it.  Neither Scott nor I know where we hid it, which is a bummer, because my sheep ROCKED.

Flash forward...I now have a kick ass craft room and oh, so many delightful tools, including the newly purchased Silhouette Cameo. (pause for love sigh)  So, I, of course, spent forever making the OCD version of Max's banner.  All that is missing from these photos is the dowel rod and hanging ribbon.  I am pretty excited.

Had to hit up Michaels for the chalice cardstock.  I was fresh out of gold!  The host is mulberry paper mounted on a cardstock circle and popped up with a pop dot.

I downloaded the chalice and the stained glass template from the Silhouette store.  I painstakingly (no hyperbole!) glued tissue paper into the areas needed.  Then, the thing I love about the Silhouette, I used my own font on my computer, Snap ITC, for his name.

Pretty exciting stuff, and one thing off of my "to do" list for today.
