Avery Elle's Build a Banner

Today I'll be showcasing Avery Elle's BUILD A BANNER Clear Stamps
that come with coordinating dies. The possibilities for creating banners are endless
and there are several Avery Elle sentiments that fit perfectly inside them.
Here's my card.

I wanted to create a bouquet with the LAURELS set and trimmed
some of the leaves in half to have longer stems. The cut portions
were covered perfectly with the banner, which is exactly what I was hoping to do.
The sentiment is from PAPEL PICADO BANNERS, that was curved a bit to fit.

Here are some samples showing how to build the banners.
It's so easy and practically foolproof and the results are awesome!

And if you want to see a "live" tutorial using the banner dies and stamps,
check out our teammie Heather Campbell in Ellen Hutson's Classroom.
Lastly, you must check out Nina's blog and see how she transformed
an acorn into a fashion accessory!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
