~Donna Salazar Designs and Shabby Banner Tutorial~

Hi everybody, Mandy here!!  I'm very happy to show you my very first layout for Donna Salazar Designs along with a quick "how to" on making your own shabby banner as well.  
 Here's what you will need for your banner.
1)  The Crafty Chronicle
2) Zutter Corrugated Cardboard
3) Mix'd Media Inx - Truffle
4) Misc - Eyelets, Twine, Pen, & Scissors
 Use a ruler to draw a traditional banner about 2 inches tall and 1.5 inches wide.  Don't worry if it's not perfect!!
 Once the first one is cut out you can use it for a template to make the rest.
 Now grab your Crafty Chronicle and use one of your pieces of banner to trace and cut out the top pieces to your banner.
NOTE:  You can tear the top layer of your cardboard off if you would like!
 Ink the edges of your top piece using your Mix'd Media Inx.  

Now it's time to punch your holes for the eyelets.  The easiest way to do this is to mark your holes with a pen and stack the front and back pieces of your banner and punch them together.
 Eyelet Time!  Use whatever tool you have to set your eyelets!
 Now lace your twine and your done.
Here are some more close ups of the finished layout.

 Below is the list of where to get your hands on these awesome products!!

5)  GCD Studios - Artistic Papers
