I made this layout for the American Crafts button challenge!

American Crafts Supplies:
Pattern Paper:  Firefly Festival and Tickled Tulip (Dear Lizzy); Warm Wishes and  Reply (Letterbox); Sophia Tuckett (Craft Fair); Howdy (Everyday); and Here Comes the Sun (Blue Skies).
Ribbon:  Lively (Dear Lizzy)
Buttons:  Glitter (Elegance)
Thicker:  Roller Rink

Embroidery Floss (DMC)

The little banner was so quick and fun to make that I thought I share a little "how to"...

1.  Punch (or cut out) several isosceles triangles out of paper, the Fabric Finish papers by Dear Lizzy punched just beautifully!  Fold over the top or the widest portion.

2.  Staple onto embroidery floss and trim off the extra paper.  This works great because you can move your banner pieces around before gluing them down on your project!
