A JoFy Christmas banner tutorial

Hello Everyone! Jane here today and I have put together a tutorial to show you how I made this banner using one of the gorgeous JoFy Christmas sets.

To make the banner, you will need:

- JoFy Christmas stamps
- Banner and scalloped border banner dies
- Alcohol markers
- Stick on gems
- Glitter glue
- Distress ink
- Baker's twine
- Red and White card
- Eyelet setter and Eyelets (not shown)
- Small bows and wooden stars

Step by Step instructions:

1. Die cut 5 banner shapes from white card

2. Stamp images from the set on the banner shapes. 
I stamped several lines of one of the borders on this one.

3. I used a sentiment to stamp the middle banner and repeat 
stamped the snowflakes around it,

4. Colour in your images using alcohol markers

5. Ink around the edges of all the banner shapes using Distress ink.
 I used Tea Dye for mine.

6. Sew around the edges of all the banner shapes using a sewing machine.

7. Die cut 5 scalloped banner shapes from red card

8. Add your coloured in banners to the red scalloped banners and 
set with eyelets in top corners

9. Decorate each banner shape with gems, glitter glue and bows

10. String the banner shapes together using Baker's twine

Your banner is now finished and ready to hang! I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial and you will inspired to create your own Christmas banner. Have a lovely Christmas!
