A good friend of mine asked me to make a banner for a bridal shower that she was helping to plan. She wanted a banner that said "Soon To Be Mrs. Gulley," clean, simple, and elegant. I cut the banner in white cardstock, using Craft Room Basics. I used a rounded corner square, then added a small circle in each corner, so that they would all match. There is nothing worse than trying to line up the holes using a hole punch. Next I cut the letters and the heart (in pink sparkle paper) using Plantin Schoolbook, and embossed them using a Damask Darice embossing folder. Then it was as easy as attaching everything together and stringing it all using a black satin ribbon.
Come to find out, I forgot the E in Gulley, so I had to come back and make another, but that was easy enough since I had saved the file in Craft Room.
