Banner, Gift Wrap, & Card

My brother had his first baby. She is so precious. To bad I don't get to enjoy her since we live across the country from each other. So I made this banner to send with my mom who would be flying there to visit. Since she had to put this in her luggage, I decorated it simple so it wouldn't get messed up. My new niece is Charlotte. They said they would call her Charlie so I made the banner with her nick name.

This is a white giftbox that I decorated & attached a small card to. 
I love how her name on this box turned out. 
I just combined several stamps to achieve this look.
Stamps used: Close to my Heart - Charming Chevrons Flair, Hopscotch Alphabet
Inks used: Close to my Heart - Slate, Honey

3"x 3" Card
Cricut Cut: 1 3/4", button- 5, function- accent 4, page 35, Cricut Artiste Cartridge
Ink: Close to my Heart - Slate, Honey
Washie Tape
Paper: Core'dinations (Sanded)

This is the whole banner. Its so hard to take a good picture of a banner. I hope you can see the concept of the project from this picture.

The first and last flag had washie tape stripes on it.

This is how I added the washie tape to each triangle flag. 
Then I took scissors and trimmed the edges before adhering to the scallop flag.

  This is what the letter flags looked like.
