Banners and PTI

I LOVE banners. Love 'em. Even bought a few pairs of low ankle socks at Target the other day with a banner design on them. You know they've hit the mainstream if you can buy them on $1 socks at Tar-Jay. I probably should be looking for the next big thing, but just adore them too much.

You can use Mini Scrapbook Tabs and the large scallop die by PTI to create your own banners for cards and projects. The tabs fit inside the large scallops. Now if you cut the scallop border just about 1/8 of an inch above where the scallops join, you create enough give in the paper to make things flexible. Swag those banners without any difficulty. Pretty sweet, huh?
