Banner Tutorial

Here is my tutorial featured this week on the Scrapbook {Express}ions blog.

Banners are all the rage and, by the looks of some of the collections that will be revealed at CHA Winter 2011, they will continue to be a popular item to use on your scrapping projects. Here's one way you can make the banners yourself.

Determine how wide and how long you want your banners, then cut a rectangle of pattern paper the size of your width by double your length.

Fold the rectangle in half and mark the center of the width of the rectangle with a pen or pencil.

Place your scissors on this pen mark and cut to the right and left to form a triangle.

Place the banner pieces on a piece of twine, ribbon, floss, etc. (I decided to use the fabric ribbon from the Newsprint Wrap for my banner instead of pattern paper. This ribbon is already creased in half, so I just had to cut the width and cut into triangles) and glue the two sides together with Inkssentials Glossy Accents.

Here's what the banner looks like once all the pieces are attached to the twine.

Here is my card using the banner. I used a sketch by Agnieszka Piskorz from the Bo Bunny Blog.
