Special Ops: Spring in a Tin

Banners are a fun Home Decor item that scrapbookers have made into their own type of wonderful. But where do you put a banner when you don't have a convenient mantle? And how do you store a banner so that it can be displayed again later?
Todays Special Ops has an answer for that!
This project started with a 75 cent tin
and a few of my favorite punches.
First I punched butterflies, flowers, and doilies
from a variety of sweet spring prints.
This tin is charming but a little too cutesy for me.
I painted the rim and the edges of the base green then added patterned cork.
Next I punctured the lid and the base of the tin with my paper piercer. I tied a knot in a generous length of twine and pushed the other end through the base of the tin.
I the punched shapes onto the twine, pushed it through the lid, and tied a knot.
I decorated the lid of the tin with a
 felt flower and a paper doily.
Now I can press a couple tacks into my wall, loop the banner over them, and display it with ease. When it's time for a change in decorations my banner slips easily into the tin and can be put away for later.
