diy: Leaves Banner

In the entry way of our home I've begun a collection of random hooks. So far their only job was holding umbrellas but after seeing a darling banner my friend Annie made from Instax I dressed the hooks up with a festy fall banner.


It includes handcut leaves from paper, felt, fabric and paper then sewed through them along with vintage flashcards & Instax.

The medallion was made from my Free People catalog and vintage book paper.

I took the photos with the Instax adapter/filter set. It includes filters to add cool effects to your photos. How cheesy and awesome are the multiple images filters? Makes me laugh!

I Love it! You make me want to have an Instax too :p

Veronica said...

Adorable! Guess I should look into one of those as well! LOL

Monica said...

Where do you buy the film for your Instax? I wasn't sure if you knew somewhere to get it at a more affordable price. You use so many of them and they always look great. I am hesitant to take some more candid shots because the film is so pricey...

The link to "Annie's" blog does not seem to be working . . . blogger says that blog does not exist??

Megan Renfree said...

Oh that is cool. I had no idea you could get filters for the Instax. You are just so clever!!

stephanie howell said...

What a great idea, e. Love this!!!!

KariM said...

So I was looking on amazon and couldn't find any of the filters. I love the look of them. Can you tell me where to look for them? Thanks.

I just purchased these from B&H and I also found them available at Urban Outfitters.
Here's the link to the B&H ones...

Thanks Liz for the inspiration to finally get these filters! As you can probably tell I've been looking for an excuse... C:

Renee Zwirek said...

Oh, too cute! So fun! I love Fall.

Altaira said...

My mother in law surprised me with an Instax a couple of months ago - after she saw me looking at all your pictures! I had no idea there was a filter set!
Sometime in the (pretty please) near future will you do a little blog post with any tips and tricks you've learned while playing with your Instax? I would be forever in your debt!

Annie @ Originate and Renovate said...

Oh I love it! of course yours is like a bazillion times cuter than mine. Love the multi-head pictures, so funny!

Lisa said...

love this idea!

Lara said...

Instax is going on my Christmas list too!! Love those Amy Tangerine stickers, just used them in a mini last night!

LoriLou said...

So, it looks like you use the mini, our do you use the wide Instax? Still agonizing over which one to get...

Libby said...

Love this project! So glad you showed us.

Holly said...

I love how cute this is! We make banners for birthdays and holidays all the time at our house, but I never thought to add pics. I love your idea and can't wait to give it a try. Thanks!

aneulore said...

I didn't know some kind of filters can exist for instax!!!
can you tell me wich ones you bought, and where, please?!!!
love all what you do!!!

jamie said...

I was just about to ask what aneulore just did. How did you get your intax minis to turn out that way?

Allison J Brown said...

wow! Those filters are so cool. I love your use of math cards!

Gaëlle said...

cinback said...

My Instax has been sitting for a while now due to the Instagram app...but this has inspired me to pull it out again! Thanks!

cococricketsmama said...

I have an instax and so need to get a filter set, love them!

Marika Vreeling said...

Hello Lizzy. I just would like to let you know that you inspire me. Since following your blog I have begun to see things in new ways. For example: I recently had been searching fruitlessly for a case or something to protect my earphones for my iPhone. I decided I'd make one myself using a ribbon bobbin ($0.70) and decorate it with scrapbook supplies (paper, ribbon, etc). Also, I wanted a new wallet, but couldn't find one that I liked that I could justify spending lots of money on. I remembered a beautiful japanese-style jewelry case that my mom had for about 20 years but never used (she rarely throws anything out), so I decided to use that for my new wallet. I just would like to thank you for sharing your creativity and sense of humour (I'm Canadian; that's how we spell humour!). Love ya! Marika. P.S. If you'd like to see my bobbin earphone case or the jewelry case, there are photos on my blog at http://marikasmith.wordpress.com/.
