Nothing says 'I like to DIY my holidays' like a custom-made holiday banner! Here is an awesome one using our jumbo gold foil alphabet mambiSTICKS by Design Team member Jen Randall just in time to ring in 2015!
On Jen's inspiration for the project, she writes:
"New Year's Eve is always a fun little celebration with my family. We live on the west coast and have two young kids. Staying up until midnight is a bit tough for us, so we party 'east coast style' as we call it at 9pm our time. We go all out with party horns, hats, pots & pans, festive decor and of course: the ball dropping in Times Square."
When it came to decorating the 2015 banner, Jen wanted to create some decorations with the Black & White Trendy mambiSHEETS. These fun patterns mixed with some gold = New Year's Eve perfection.

About the process of making this banner, Jen writes:
"All I did was cut some triangle shapes from an old cracker box that I rescued from the recycle bin and painted them gold. Once the paint dried, I layered some black & white paper between a cupcake liner and a white doily. On top, I added a large gold foil number from the mambiSTICKS package. I attached it all on to the triangle and added a few embellishments like the gold glitter swirls and scallop-punched paper with vellum. Glue this all together on black ribbon and you're ready to hang!"
