This is the banner that I created for today's hop. I've got a video for you showing how I colored the canvas flags from my Pennant Set using our new Pigment Powders as well as how to create the little denim flowers with the ruffly background.
I've also got a photo tutorial below to show you how I made the Girlie Grunge ruffle using my organza ribbon from our new Texture Ribbons pack with the scallop edge ribbon from my Denim Ribbons pack.
I sewed my banner and flag pieces together before I added any embellishments. I cut a piece of the scallop denim from the Denim Ribbons pack to the same length as the banner. I cut a piece of organza ribbon from the Texture Ribbons pack that was twice as long as the banner.
I added a strip of Crafty Power Tape (about 1/4 inch from the bottom edge) the entire length of the organza ribbon.
I placed a string along the center of the organza then folded the ribbon over and adhered the edges so it created a channel for the string.
I then used the string to gather the organza until it was the same length as the denim ribbon.
I added Crafty Power Tape to the back of the denim ribbon.
I removed the backing from the Crafty Power tape then adhered the organza to the back of the denim ribbon.
I used the new Home and Hobby Premium Double Sided Tape 1/2" Permanent on the back of the organza because it is a little more heavy duty than the Crafty Power Tape.
Once the denim/organza trim was adhered to the banner I used a heat gun to slightly melt the organza and make it look more ruffled.
