1.       Decide on what kind of shape you want to use for the banner. I did a Pennant Shape, but you can do circles or even triangles. Make your pattern and make two sizes of it {one a tad smaller than the other}. Trace the larger pattern on to your cardstock and then trace the smaller pattern onto your patterned paper. Cut out.

2. You will then glue the smaller pattern on to your larger pattern.

3. From there, I made paper accordions. To do that, cut out strips half the width of what you would like your paper accordion to be. For example, if you want a 4 inch accordion, then cut your strips 2 inches wide. Your will need 2 strips per accordion. Then, siz sag the entire length of the paper. You will hot glue the beginning and the ends of the paper to your other zig-zagged strip. Then you will in the edges of the paper and place a dab of hot glue. Hold until it dries.
4. Hot glue your accordions to your scrapbook paper shapes.
5. Then trace your letters onto your glitter paper. To do this I cut out letters {Coney Island Font} and traces it backwards onto the back of my glitter paper. I then cut it out and hot glued it to the center of my accordion flowers.

Hi, Just wanted to let you know that the code for your link button is not working and with my website that run the system Moveable Type it embedded itself into my code messing things up. I took a quick look at your button to see if I could clean it up but the link to the original image is not there.

Checking the people that are at your link party none of them have your button on their sites so I gather it is a problem for everyone.

Hope you figure this out soon, love your site, best of luck, Ingrid

Very cute Kristyn! I finally broke down and bought a scoring table, and it makes those accordions so much easier. I love making them now! 🙂
