Banner Technique - Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  Banners are all the rage now.  You see them everywhere.  This month we are featuring the banner technique on page 35 of the Close To My Heart Spring/Summer 2011 ideabook, but with a twist.  Our goal was to find something other than triangles to create banners with.  Our blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.  If you would like to start from the beginning, please visit this link  Debi Barber's blog .  While there you will also find a listing of all participants and their blog addresses if you should get lost or want to reference a blog along the way Let’s get started!
If you are coming from, you are on the right track!  This technique is highlighted with the Fanfare paper packet in the Idea Book but you will find variations for its’ use through this hop.
If you are coming from Teri Baxter's Blog, you are on the right track!  This technique is highlighted with the Sophia paper packet in the Idea Book but you will find variations for its’ use through this hop. 

I used "flip flops" for the banner. How cute is that.

If you would like to see details on the technique or my supply list, please continue reading below.  If not, please continue onto Sheila Wilkerson's blog.  Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping!

Supply List:  All "Close to my Heart"

Thanks for stopping by!  Continue onto Sheila Wilkerson's blog to continue the hop.
