Circle Die Cut
Die Cut Machine
1. Place dies and cardstock in die cut machine and cut.
2. Arrange the cut pieces in a pattern before placing on the string.
3. Fold the paper in half, carefully lining up the design, then crease along the folded edge.
4. Measure and cut string for the banner. For this project approximately 36 inches of string was used.
5. Begin assembling the banner by placing the string along the folded edge.
6. Apply adhesive along the edges of the scallop then fold closed.
7. Repeat steps 1 through 6, taking time to measure the same distance between each piece of the banner.
8. Continue embellishing as desired.
Here are a few close-up images of the completed banner.
Finally, the completed banner.
