Yesterday’s project features the sentiment “Live in the Sunshine,” which was stamped on a piece of Whisper White card stock and then trimmed into a banner. With scissors, it is easy to mess up the two [seemingly simple] snips that would turn an ordinary slip of paper into a brilliant banner. Today I want to share a quick tip for easily making a banner out of a strip of paper.
Here’s a close-up of yesterday’s project, followed by step-by-step instructions on how to recreate this look yourself:
1. I knew I wanted to banner to have a button on the right hand side of the stamped sentiment. I placed the button on the banner (it’s just sitting there – no adhesive) to get a good idea of where the banner snips should go. This banner is about 1-1/4″ x 3″.
2. Using my 1″ Square Punch, I punched a square from scrap paper. I placed a little adhesive on the back of the green square and positioned it on the soon-to-be banner, making sure to line it up exactly where I want it.
3. I then punched the green square with my [old-school] 1″ square punch, leaving a perfect edge for my banner.
I hope this tip was helpful! Happy banner making!
