Oh how I enjoy the PTI countdown leading up to their monthly release. The PTI design team puts together the most amazing and inspiring cards and projects. There is always one or sometimes a few cards I wanted to copy. Well, for the January release it was the card Nichole Heady made with the Tiny Treats: Birthday set. From the moment I saw it I want to make one. It is a perfect card to have in my stash since I have two young boys with birthday parties season coming. PERFECT! So as soon as I got this set I went about making the card.
However I didn't purchase the PTI Double Ended Banners die, I wanted too but it didn't fit in the cart this time ;) But I had seen somewhere (not sure if it was a blog or video or where) but I saw you can use a square punch to make a banner. To do this you put the strip of paper in the corner of the square punch and while holding it upside down so you can line it up and just punch a triangle off the end to create a banner and do the same to the other end.
