A Banner Time with Design Team Member Connie Mercer

Connie recently created this magnificent banner from Debby's Design Vintage Tags.  I love what she did with the tags and wanted to share it with you.


Vintage Boy Tag Banner
by
Connie Mercer

Instructions:
1. Cut each tag into a point~measure half way down on the tag~take a ruler and draw a line at an angle  the middle bottom point. That will give you a nice even point for your banner. Do all the tags.

2. Punch out 9 1" circles for each tag~out of pattern paper of your choice.

3. Adhere circles around bottom of tags ( point part)

4. Use tissue tape to adhere tags together making the banner.

5. Sew on machine~a top stitch.

6. Add tickets to sides with hemp or ribbon.

7. Now you are ready for the fun part~decorate and tell your story!!

Thank You Connie for sharing your creativity.
