Little Tag Banner Tutorial


Hello there. How about a tutorial! We will be using the 
God Family Country Hang Tag set.
 You can purchase Here

First gather your supplies
You'll Need:
God Family Country Hang Tag set
 ( you get 2 sizes, I used the larger size)
Glue stick
Jute Twine
Hole Punch
Homespun fabric
Sand paper
Distress ink OR shoe polish
Cut out your tags and glue them onto cardboard. Don't have to be fussy when cutting. I used the back of a cereal box. Then "fussy" cut each one. Again just go with it. Trust me I don't cut straight at all. 
Next grab your sand paper. I like to make mine look a little worn. It also helps the edges not peel up.

Take your distress ink or shoe polish and go around the edges. You can make some darker to make them more worn out.

Now grab your hole punch and make two holes in each tag. Weave the jute in and out of the tags like I have. This will make the banner part.

Now for the fun fun part. Grab some homespun and tear into stripes. Yes its messy, yes it fun! Now cut them into small pieces about 5in long. Tie them in a knot around the jute in between the tags.
Here it is. You can have the homespun hang down like mine. The more you put the more full it gets.
I have mine hanging from my shelf.


I hope you will give it a try. It is super fast and really looks great with all your prim decor.

Until next time,
Cyn
