Congrats Banner - MDS Monday

Good morning!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  For this weeks MDS Monday project, I've got a banner that I made for my husband for his surprise graduation party coming up this weekend.  MDS made this so easy!

I started with one of the banner punches from the grad party kit, increased it to just smaller than 1/4 of a sheet of 8-1/2x11.  The next step was to choose my paper pack.  I wanted something more masculine, so went with the Number One dsp and kept with that colour scheme throughout.  The letters are Laurens Letters & Numbers which is a punch.  Here's a look at one of the pages in MDS...
I kept it really simple because I didn't have a lot of time to spend on it.  So just a few elements were added to dress it up - a couple of punches behind the occasional letter.  Some recoloured washi tape, stitching and staples.

I printed it from home and then just cut out each shape, punched and thread through some retired cording.
I'm still hoping to get a few more things done in MDS for party decor but will have to see how much time I have.  We've got a busy week ahead.

If you are interested in trying MDS - don't forget about the free trial.  I also have an MDS class coming up on Saturday June 15th from 10am to noon.  Let me know if you are interested in attending - class fee is $10 or free with a $25 purchase!

Thanks for stopping by!
