4th of July Chipboard Banner

Summer is in full swing and the 4th of July is approaching quickly.  I hope everyone is enjoying their summer with vacations, celebrations, and family!!!  I've been spending the majority of my time shooting photos and spending lots of time with my kids :)  But I do have a few fun projects to share with you.
I have become addicted to making banners ... lol.  So let's start with those, as they are fairly quick and easy ... and super fun!  This is my 4th of July banner. 
Here are the Dimensions/Tips for this banner:
Each pendant is 5 1/2 x 4 1/2
(measure 1 1/2 up, in the middle to form the triangle that is cut out of each bottom section)
Gears- Tim Holtz die cut gears from chipboard (then I alcohol ink and distressed them)
Letters- I used a stencil and white paint on burlap paper, then outlined them with a pen
Trims- tan twill, cheese cloth, red and cream lace, and white ric rac
Flowers- are homemade using solid papers
Extra- wood pieces I had in my stash, and some bling (Stickles and gems)
Paper- Scenic Route "Liberty" and chipboard pieces
