Snow Day Banner

Our contributor Monika Wright lives in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee and has been having quite a mild winter. No snow yet!   Missing the snow, Monika decided to create a snowflake banner to hang above her fireplace…. If you can’t have the real thing, why not try to recreate it?   It’s a fun winter project that just took a few minutes.  

For this quick-and-easy, 5-minute project, you will need: 
  • 4" paper lace doilies
  • PSA Essentials Flakes Peel & Stick stamp set & the outer ring from the PSA Tree-O Peel & Stick set
  • Royal blue ink by PSA Essentials
  • Turquoise ink
  • Baker's twine from The Twinery

Monika stamped the outer ring of PSA Tree-O using her PSA Stamper loaded with royal ink.  Then she adhered the Fancy Flake to an acrylic block and stamped using a turquoise ink.   She threaded the doily when the stamps were dry with twine to create a banner.  

Who knew that paper doilies and stamps could make such a fun wintery project? Here's Monika’s family room outfitted with a garland of snowflakes while they wait to see if real ones will fall this year….

So simple, you could really go crazy here and create a super long one, too! 


  1. Love that you stamped on doilies, it is such a great look! This would be a great project to get the kids involved with too! Thanks so much for the inspiration Monika!

  2. That is so cute! And from a fellow Tennessean! :)
