If you have been following my blog or Instagram you have figured out that I have an obsession with paper. The only thing that I like as much as paper is once it comes to crafting is the die cut center at Ben Franklin Crafts and Frames. Their die cut center is great for making banners! I look for any excuse to make a banner. I have two designs spinning in my head as I type this, so make sure to follow along so that you are the first to know when I post about them here :)
This one was for a sweet little girl, whose aunt is a friend and and her mom also happens to be a blogger friend of mine, she blogs over at With a Spin. My friend chose the design for the banner and we headed over to BF (Ben Franklin) to match papers and start die cutting. It was so much fun crafting together and getting someone else hooked on die cutting too!
If you are one of my local readers, head over to Ben Franklin to create a banner with a personal touch for your next occasion, let me know if you need any help, I'll be there to join you!
To create this banner you will need :
- grey, chevron, polka dot and pink paper
- pink tulle
- grey ribbon
- pop dots
- small circle hole punch
The die that were used are
letters = 4 inch
small heart = 235
small scallop = 454
large scallop = J168
large circle = J55
what to do:
1. Die cut your shapes and letters.
2. Stick them together using pop dots.
3. Punch holes in the individual pieces and tie them together with a piece of tulle and a piece of ribbon.
Don't forget, caring is sharing!
