For a while it seemed like die cuts were going to be a fad and cyclical.  However with the popularity in electronic die cuts, die cuts from dies, and pre-cut die cuts this is one trend that is going to be around for a long, long time.  Die cuts really make a project look more professional and store bought.  Today I am sharing a simple banner created using a few die cuts and the Life Is Beautiful line.

Start by collecting pattern paper that you would like to use for the banner.  I decided on pieces of paper I had already cut through on the 6×6 Life Is Beautiful paper pad. I guess you can say I used scrap pieces of paper. I try to get as much as I can out of each sheet.

Layer each die cut using foam adhesive.

Once finished layering each die cut I grabbed the chipboard alpha to spell out “gifts”.  I strung the banner together using natural twine.
