American Crafts Banner Tutorial

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!
I had a tutorial up on the blog yesterday that I would like to share with you.
I love using the Knock Outs punches on my projects.  They are very easy to use,
and small and portable enough to take with me to crops.

1. Cover pieces of smooth cardstock with DIY shop washi tape.  
Using Knock Outs punches, punch out several shapes.

2. Gather punched pieces and DIY shop banner and pennant pieces.

3. Using a sewing machine stitch the punched pieces onto the DIY shop
     banner and pennant pieces.

4. Using Knock Outs 1.5" and 2" circle punches, punch out several pieces
from DIY shop paper.  Layer pieces together, adhere and then use scissors 
to fray the edges to create paper flowers.

5. Adhere glitter tape across the top of the pennant and banner pieces.
Embellish by adding paper flowers, fabric flowers and thickers.
