Easter Decorations: Happy Easter Banner

Okay if you haven't figured it out yet, I LOVE banners!!!  I love creating a new banner with decorative paper for each holiday or special occasion.  Since I started this blog after many of the holidays passed you missed out on my Autumn banner, Thanksgiving banner, Winter banner, and Christmas banner.  I was actually inspired to start creating banners by the Cricut Message Boards and all the fantastic and creative ideas there. Click to register and view the Cricut Message Board.  I promise you won't be disappointed!  But anyways... I LOVE banners!  So in staying with the same theme as my Easter egg collage, I created larger Easter eggs from the Easter 2010 cartridge using the same paper and colors.  I then cut out Happy Easter using Lyrical Letters and ran them through my Xyron upside down so I could sprinkle Martha Stewart glitter on top.  This is the best way to glue glitter down if you want the letters to be flat.  If you are interested in a bubbled letter I use Glossy Accents to fill in the letter and then just sprinkle glitter.  Here is my banner! 

Hanging in the doorway between my living room and dining room.

Even the back is decorative!

Here are the close ups! Sorry for the pictures, I finished it at night so the lighting was really bad.

I tied each egg together with a little bit of tulle and some purple, pink, and green ribbon.  I also pop dotted the letters off the eggs (surprise, surprise).  I think I might add some of the faux pearls if I can find them in larger sizes.  I know the last time I went to Michael's they had a ton of different styles and sizes.
