I wanted to celebrate every occasion with a magnetic HYBRID banner! This idea has been brewing in my head since I saw the Build a Banner Kit from the holiday mini catalog. I dreamed of making a gift that could be used all year round and my dear friend, Jenny Peterson, inspired me with this card. My vision came together quickly after that and the YEAR ROUND Build a Banner was created!

The Harvest of Thanks and ABC 123 Sketch Alpha downloads worked perfectly to create the changeable letters for the banner. How fun is the "little letter" in the bottom? And to add more HAPPY to this hybrid project you can cut it out quick and easy with the Apothecary Accents Framelits!
(image 2 and 3)

With 28 digitally designed pieces this banner can say:
HAPPY - birthday, holidays, Thanksgiving
PEACE on earth
LOVE you to infinity and beyond
and MANY more. I've added a few of the images to show you how easily it changes.

LOVE you to infinity and beyond



This banner was just begging for an easy way to store all the pieces while not in use so below is the portfolio I created to do just that! Inside the portfolio are two large cello bags folded in half to make 4 four pockets! It is storage and packaging all in one!

These pockets hold the banner itself with all the design elements: punched circles, ribbons, doilies, glimmer circles, and all 28 of the designed letter and holiday tags.

While you're creating holiday gifts this season I encourage you to THINK HYBRID!

I'm so happy y'all like it! I've had a few crafters that wanted to case this and asked how I made it magnetic. The banner pieces have a strong magnet that I glued on with crystal effects and each letter is backed with a 1" washer. Just lay the interchangeable accents on top of the banner, place letter on top and it's good to go! About 3 elements work great, any more than that and it's just too thick to hold tight. Have fun creating your HYBRID banner :)
