Tape Banner Tutorial

Here's my post from the Love My Tapes Blog yesterday:

Hi friends! It's Ashley here to share a project with you today. I'm sure you all know how popular banners are and I just wanted to show you how simple it is to make a banner from fabric tape.

To make the banner, you use have a select what size you'd like your flags and cut the tape pieces to that length. I used Mini Check Fabric Tape in Taffy, Sherbet, and Lemon Bar. Then cut the Vs into each end and stick them to the paper using either a piece of twine or string as the rope for the banner. I used Divine Twine.
I'd like to point out the stamp in this card. It is a Swimming For Katie stamp from i {heart} papers (an online store that sells Love My Tapes.) These stamps are to benefit my friend and fellow crafter, Katie Renz who is battling gastric cancer. If you can, please purchase a stamp. I have an incentive for you. I'm hosting a challenge for anyone who uses these stamps. Challenge details HERE. Love My Tapes has graciously donated 3 packs of fabric tape, 1 fabric sheet, and a double sided adhesive runner to my $200+ prize pack. (I love designing for these generous people!)

Have a great day!
