Here is a post from guest blogger Christina Tucker:

Banners Here, Banners There, Banners are EVERYWHERE!

There is always a use for a banner weather it is Congratulations, or welcome home, or Birthday, or any other occasion or saying you might what to put onto a banner.

I have put my paper crafting skills to work and made a Birthday Banner

First I used my Cutter/trimmer and cut the scrapbook paper into 13 3X3 Squares (1 square for each letter in Happy Birthday).


I also cut the card stock into 13 2X2 squares.


I then rounded the corners of the 2X2 card stock paper with my corner rounder.


Next I used my Journaling pen And wrote HAPPY BIRTHDAY on the Squares one letter per square


Then with my bottle stickles I traced over each letter to make it sparkly and stand out.


Next I used my foam squares to attach the 2X2 card stock squares on top of the 3X3 paper squares.


Then I punched holes in the top corners


Finally I laid out the letters and laced a piece of ribbon through each word tying off the ends by making a bow.


*Number of squares will vary according to the number of letters in the words on you banner
