The little bird in the center of the banner, was made out of half a paper mache egg. The egg was covered with punched border strips and then I added chipboard wings, legs and a beak.
For the hat, I made a small cone out of some patterned paper. Then scrunched it around a little, until I was happy with the shape. To finish it off I added some Maya Road trim, fur and a pom pom.
Here you can see how I used the Green and Turquoise Trinket Leaf Pins to embellish the banner. Some under the small Chipboard Snowflakes (shown above) and again on the larger snowflakes seen below.
