A Little Different Banner
Jen here and I want to show you an easy way to make a fun banner- a little different than the norm. I picked a cute cardstock, matching solid cardstock, ribbon, and embellishments. I was able to get six letters out of one 12”x12” piece of cardstock! It will depend on the size of your shapes how many you’ll get.
I cut the base shape with a spellbinder die. Using the crop-a-dile, I set matching eyelets in the top of my shape.
I then tied them to the die-cut shape, this way the burlap string bow would be at the top of the shape.
Next I cut my letters out of matching cardstock and coated them in glitter.
I tied an extra bow with the satin/scallop edge ribbon on each end for a more festive look!
And you can see how different these look by simply changing the base paper! (And different spellbinders die!)
Since this one had fewer letters I also did an ‘end’ piece on each side. I cut flower shapes (Again with a spellbinder die) out of the same paper I’d used for the letters & ran them through the cuttlebug with an impression plate (PTI). The buttons are tied on with burlap string.
So that is my twist on a banner! I hope you’ve been inspired!
