Hi everyone - you know it's 15th February today? Well - on the 15th of every month the Scrapwhisper DT hold a blog hop showcasing a project created by a member of our lovely DT. This week Nilsa is showing us how to make Banners!
So over to Nilsa........
You will need:
Foam Adhesive for dimension
PaperPuncher / Crop-o-dile
Yarn or String
I made my banner from a heart chipboard album, but these days you can find templates online, which you can resize. You can use any shape, size or template that you like.
1. I started out with patterned paper. I traced and cut out all 6 hearts.
2. Then, I used my cuttlebug to cut out some spellbinders scalloped circles, which I glued onto my hearts.
Ink chipboard letters and add to your circles
4. For my first and last heart I used some crepe and made a ruffled edge for my hearts. (that is optional) I embellished to my liking (I used sticker cupid, crafty secret sticker and I cut out hearts from pattern paper}
5. I then added the string and hung my banner
You can make your banner simple or elaborate. Also, you can find many different banners and tutorials online.
These are some banners which I have made in the past
Spring banner from butterfly
Banner for layout
And there we have it - a really quick project for you if you are wanting a creative fix today! Why not blog hop to the other DT's blogs and you can see what they created for Nilsa's Banner Challenge.....
When you have done that (don't forget to leave them some love) why not create your own banner too - if you do come back here and link us to them, and we will add your name into the February prize draw!
