Find Out About Friday - How to Make Perfect Banner Ends Every Time

For this week's Find Out About Friday I am going to share a mini tutorial on how to make perfect banner ends.  Using the method I am going to show you, you will be able to get perfectly symmetrical ends to your banners every time and what is even better is that it is both quick and easy to do!

Banners are everywhere at the moment, they look great on cards and on scrapbook pages.  Lots of people have asked me about how to get their Banner Ends to look right so as I put together this scrapbook page I took a few photos to show you how I created the banner.

First cut your strip of paper to the length and width that you want.  Next cut up the center of the banner to the spot you would like the inner point of your banner end to be.

Cut from one corner up to the end of your first cut - you will have cut away a triangle

If you flip the triangle over you will see that it matches the other side perfectly - you could if you wanted use this as a template to cut the other side.

Alternatively I find it even easier to cut from the second corner up to the top of the point of the triangle I have already cut out and hey presto a perfect banner end - every time!

For this page I then inked the edges and added some waves by rolling it across my fingers and adding Dimensionals underneath the help it keep its shape
