My second Post today showcases one of the Sale-A-Bration freebies - the Banner Punch. 
I have used Champagne Glimmer Paper for the banners, and a
sentiment from the Perfectly Penned stamp set, heat embossed with gold embossing powder. 

As I promised in my previous Post, here is the useful little tip which makes the Banner Punch so versatile~ 
The large sentiment banners on the two floral cards below, were cut as demonstrated here ......

Cut a strip of cardstock 1.5cm wide (this can be any length you wish). Open the punch, and instead of using in the normal way, place one end of the strip OVER the circle and insert UNDERNEATH the "V" of the banner punch, then press to cut. 
Remove the card, trim the uncut end so you have a banner of your desired length, then repeat the "V" cut on the straight end.

Here is a finished sentiment banner - so quick and easy. 

 Thank you for popping by.
