Pennant Tutorial

As promised, I’m back with a tutorial on how I made the pennants for the Easter banner I designed for Spellbinders™ Bunny Hop last week. I’m also going to be posting a tutorial for the Easter baskets at the bottom of the pennants and the ribbon and bows. I’m starting first with the pennant, I’ll move on to the Easter basket and finish up with the ribbon later in the week. 

I thought I’d try something new and fun for you! When I get to the last of the tutorials, showing how I wove the ribbon through the pearls and attached it to the back of the pennant, I’m offering the completed project as blog candy. What do you think? Would you like to play along and have a chance to win the design in the tutorials? All you have to do for a chance at winning the design is leave a comment at the end of each tutorial telling me what you think of the tutorial. At the end of the week I’ll select a winner using Random.org. Again, to be eligible to win the design, you have to leave a comment on each tutorial.

For all you seasoned crafters, hang in there and speed read .   .   . LOL .   .   . I don’t want to leave any newbies behind!

I’ve received a lot of comments and e-mails asking where I purchased the paper for the pennants. I photocopied the pictures from my sons’ Beatrix Potter Giant Story Book onto white cardstock that I purchased from Staples. The book can be purchased on line for those of you interested. Due to copyright laws, I cannot copy the pages for distribution, nor can I sell any of my designs, they are for my personal use only. I apologize for the quality of the photos, I don’t have an area set up with proper lighting for tutorials yet.

Okay, let’s get started: Trim the page down and place the largest pennant die over the image (ridges facing down as shown above) centering it to the image. (To keep the die from slipping, I taped it down with Scotch Removable Tape as shown above.)

Turn the paper over and place it on the Base Plate that comes with the Grand Calibur (or whichever system you’re using) and cover with the cutting plate.

Feed the sandwich through the Grand Calibur as shown. 

Your cut image will look like this from the back.  Leave it on the Base Plate and cover with the tan embossing pad and Embossing Plate.

Feed this sandwich through the Grand Calibur as shown.

Using cardstock color of your choice, cut the largest lacey pennant to go behind your image, follow the same procedure to cut and emboss as above.

(Tip: If you’re new to the Grand Calibur, you might want to tape your dies and paper down with removable tape. After you’ve worked with it awhile, you’ll get the hang of how to hold the plates for the least amount of die and paper slippage.)

For stability of your pennant, using the largest pennant die, cut a chipboard pennant from a cereal box or something similar in weight. Adhere cut image to the chipboard. (I prefer to use Zip Dry, it doesn’t warp or buckle the paper.)

Sponge around the edges of the pennant with ink of your choice. I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink. (This step is optional.) 

Turn the image over and apply adhesive to the back side as shown.

Carefully adhere the image to the lacey pennant as shown. Zip Dry dries very quickly, however, it does give you time to slide the paper around for a perfect fit.

Apply small dots of Perga Glue adhesive on the lacey pennant as shown. Using a large needle, pick up a pearl and place it on a dot of glue (I used Darice pearls that I purchased at JoAnn Fabrics, they come in a bag of multiple sizes and are located in the bead section.), gently pull the needle from the pearl. I prefer to use Perga Glue for this, it has a much stronger hold than Zip Dry and has a small nozzle perfect for application of the small dots of adhesive.

Do the same on the opposite side, for a total of 12 pearls (six on each side). Do not place pearls on the top scroll or across the top of the lacey pennant.

Place these dies from the Banner Basics Three set on the Base Plate. (You will need to cut four of the small tassel.  If you want your tassel to be the same color, place it on the plate now.  I selected a cream color for the tassels on my banner and cut them later.) If you’re covering the back side of your lacey pennant, you’ll need to do this step twice (see below).

Cover with cardstock and feed through the Grand Calibur.

Cover the cut pieces with the tan embossing pad and embossing plate and feed through the Grand Calibur. (The color is off in this picture, the pieces look yellow, but are green.)

If you’re using two colors on the banners as I did, you’ll need to follow the last two steps to cut and emboss the pieces in your second color. I’m only making one pennant for the purposes of this tutorial. However, in the original Easter banner I made, I followed this step with all four colors and interchanged the pieces, i.e., pink/yellow and blue/green.

Using inks of your choice, sponge color on the smaller banner pieces and the longer narrow strip, using your dies as stencils (as shown). Here you see that I have the four small tassels in cream cardstock. You can cut two layers of cardstock at a time. I fed the tassel die through the Grand Calibur twice for the four cuts.

Adhere the four blue pieces onto the green banner with adhesive, then adhere the narrow green stenciled piece, placing the tassels on top (tassels are normally placed at the bottom of the banner, however, for this piece I chose to place them at the top). Small dots of adhesive were placed on the tassels and glitter was applied. 

Cut 8 flowers using the flower die from the Easter Fun dies. The centers are cut from the flowers. I used a small circle punch and punched circles from the scraps of paper and adhered them to the backs of the flowers. Perga Glue is a better choice here than Zip Dry adhesive, we want a firm bond that will not separate.

In this photo, you see two banners, one for the front of the pennant and one for the back. I placed brads on the banner that will cover the back side of the lacey pennant (we will use this piece in the last tutorial when I attach the ribbon to the pennant.)

Once the adhesive is dry, cut slits in four of the flowers, every petal as shown.

 

I used an embossing pad, a large ball embossing tool (for the lower petals) and both the small ball and the large ball embossing tools (for the upper petals) to shape the flowers. The flowers that you cut slits in are the upper petals. Place adhesive inside the larger flowers and place the smaller flowers inside. Place adhesive inside the smaller flowers and place the pearls inside the flowers. Let adhesive dry and then add glitter to the edges of the petals. Let adhesive dry. 

Adhere the banner to the pennant centering it on the image.  The top of the banner should be even with the top of the pennant so that the lacey scroll is visible at the top as shown.

I’ll be back soon with the Easter Basket tutorial. I’ll attach the baskets to the bottom of the pennant in that tutorial.

Thanks so much for stopping in and don’t forget to leave a comment if you’d like a chance to win the finished pennant design in this tutorial!

    OMGosh Jerri … if your tutorial was any easier to follow, we’d have to be attending a personal class with you in Florida! Your project was very labor intensive but so worth it … the results are unbelievable.

  46. Susan says:

    Our daughter is having a baby girl in early June and this would be a perfect gift for her.

  56. Deb Saaranen says:

    Fabulous tutorial on your adorable banner! I have always loved Beatrix Potter…what a precious project!

  57. Patti King says:

    Hi Jerri,

    I am so excited that you have taken the time to show us how to do this. I am thinking it could be adapted for a new baby celebration as well as an Easter banner. I have to tell you that when I saw the pennants, I immediately went online to find the book you used. The first one I saw was $999.00 – I like to fainted. Fortunately there were some with a smaller price tag so one is coming to me in the mail. (Let you in on a secret – I have never read these books – but I will now!)

    I have a couple questions Jerri. First, were you able to run that cereal box cardboard through the machine or did you have to cut it with an exacto knife? Second, is there a spray on sealer that one could put on the finished product t0 keep it fresh for years – like a shellac or somethng? There is so much to learn.

    Once again thank you for being a Blessing.

  58. The penant is sooooooooo cute. I love the pearls that you accented it with. What a nice card front this will make. Thanx for the tutorial and sharing of your amazing talent.

    hugs,
    Dottie

  59. Elaine Parsons says:

    Hi Jerri,
    I’m always amazed at the projects you do. Thanks so much for the tutorial. I’m looking forward to getting the pennant dies
    Elaine

  60. Susie says:

    Whether a beginner or seasoned paper crafter, this tutorial is beneficial. It’s easy to follow and understand. Jerri, when you have time, please address different types of adhesives. I have never used Zip Dry. I know that different weather areas can determine the outcome of how some adhesives work. If I’m going to use glue, I want those added seconds to be able to move the piece around if I need to.

  61. Jan Knapp says:

    Lovely tutorial. I can’t wait to find these dies. I love making banners and I adore Beatrix Potter.

  62. DebraK says:

    This is a very detailed tutorial–great job. I like your idea of using a needle to manipulate beads–I’ve used a pointy tweezers and mostly the beads just get launched into space. What kind of printer are you using to copy the book pages? It looks like great quality for copies. It is so nice to see this step-by-step and so close up. I am still so amazed at the banner you made the other day–it was so spectacular! I love reading tutorials and the only comment I could suggest (to anyone, not you specifically) is to put it in a PDF file that we could click and download it to our PC–and/or print as a document to file. That would be awesome. I’ve never seen anyone do that before but it would be super great!

  63. Victoria Merrick says:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for doing a tutorial on your awe-inspiring Beatrice Potter Easter Banner!!! Everything was explained in detail so now I can try my hand at making one. I am so looking forward to your future tutorials! And……hoping my number gets picked by Random.org so I can hang your precious banner on my mantel for everyone to see this Easter!

  64. Nelda says:

    Love your work, bunnies, and spellbinders.

  65. Rufus says:

    The tutorial is great to point out all the little details that you might miss in just looking at the overall picture. But without those little details it just doesn’t have the same punch!

  66. Lucille says:

    Jeri, your work has always left me speechless. It is so amazingly beautiful. What a great idea about the Beatrice Potter book. I would love to win the banner for my grand-sons room. Thank you for the great tutorial.

  67. Norma Robnett says:

    Wow! I love it. Great tutorial, easy to understand every step and the result is wonderful. Thanks sooo much.

  68. Anne says:

    Hi Jerri, A very detailed tutorial and gosh, how can you think of so many little details to be captured in your work? You are simply amazing & detailed oriented!! Thanks for sharing your great project!! Looking forward to your Easter basket tutorial soon!!

  69. LindaMar says:

    You do a great job with your tutorials! Of course, it helps that you are showing us something we WANT to do! Your projects are always so beautiful. I have just purchased your tools for embossing so I can make the flowers from your other tutorials. Can hardly wait to try my hand.

  70. Debbie G. says:

    totally awesome!

  71. I love how you spell every detail out in your tut…so easy once you say all the details…I must get some of that removable tape. Love your blog.

  72. So creative, Jerri.. wonderful tutorial. I LOVE all of these banners.

  73. Clavell says:

    I love your tutorials…they are so well written and concise I can understand each step!! Also, thank you for mentioning your adhesives and supplies…that is so helpful. I have found that adhesives can make or break a project. I plan to try the Zip Dry. Your Peter Rabbit banner is fabulously wonderful.

  74. Beautiful, love your idea of using the cereal box to give it more stability, and the flowers are so pretty you would have never known they were made from that die.
    I am in the midst of making a card box for my daughters wedding and I am applying lace to the box that I have painted, I tried spray glue but now it is all coming off, I am thinking about trying fabric tac next, do you have any thoughts of what I should use?

  75. Heather (Montreal) says:

    Thanks so much for your tutorial. Your generous sharing is much appreciated! It’s wonderful to actually see your step by step instructions and they really help :)
    Thanks so much also for the chance to win your extraordinary piece of art. I love it!

  76. Alta R says:

    WOW! Just when I think I am not interested in something then I see something like this and WOW! I have a young couple that want to have a baby and they asked me to do the baby shower cards I would love to make this for the showers banner. WOW!

  77. mary puskar says:

    Beatrix Potter’s illustrations are just so “easter” aren’t they? What a lovely idea. I loved the tutorial. You are very good at instructions in addition to being totally talented! Can’t wait to see the little basket!

    This project is just stunning, awesome details. Great tutorial.

  81. Cheryl L says:

    I love all the detail in the banner with the fringe. Thanks for the tutorial–and for mentioning things like what kind of glue you use, and why. I’m new at all this and when I first started I had no idea that I was going to have to learn so much about things like adhesives. I thought my daughter’s white school glue would work for everything! :)

  82. Thank you so much for the detailed tutorial. I love your banner Peter Rabbit is my very favorite. Thank you so much for sharing your amazing talent.

  83. Pam P says:

    Great tutorial you are so kind to share your amazing talent with all of us. Your banner is so beautiful as is all of your creations.

  85. Barbara Taylor says:

    Another Great Inspirational tutorial. I love the use of Beatrix Potter.

  86. Fab says:

    As always, I am blown away by your work. I appreciate the detailed instructions you give. I know it must take a lot of your time to do this and I’m sure I can say for everyone “thank you”.

  87. Kristine Vencel says:

    I am so in love with your projects, Jerri! You have such a creative talent that is to be envied! This pennant banner sooooo adorable!

  88. Kathy P says:

    Another beautiful work of art. Thank you for being so generous and showing us how to make this.
    God Bless.

  89. Dorthy Barber says:

    Jerri, I didn’t purchase the pennant die because I couldn’t think of a good use for it — well now that I have seen your great creation it is on my shopping list. So pretty.

  90. Cindy says:

    Great tutorial. You are so creative, thanks for sharing.

  91. Edna Siu says:

    I love the picture, the water-coloring-technique is always my favorite way of coloring pictures. I remember when I was a kid, we (six brothers and sisters) did not have a lot of choice of what we could own, so pencil crayons are the best stationary of all for us to play with, later on, water color pads were the greatest treasure we had, water-coloring played a hugh part of our art lives. The picture you used here is exactly the figures we used to see in the library. You make me slip back to my old days and it is a sweet memory. Thanks

  92. Sandy says:

    I love this banner, it is beautiful. so clever to think of copying the images from your son’s book. Thanks for the tutorial.

  93. Excellent Tutorial! And what a great idea to copy children’s books! I have a small collection that would be perfect for a project like this! Thanks for sharing your talent!

    Deb in WI

  94. Nicolette says:

    Jerri, again, blown away.
    Love the work, love the caring. Thanks for being so inspiring. As always wishing i was as talented. God Bless….

  95. Marian says:

    As usual your tutorial is precise and concise and very easy to follow. I love having the photos showing step by step which is so helpful especially for those of us who need to see before understanding. Beautiful work as usual. Thanks, Jerri.

  96. Dottie Davis says:

    I love these pennants! The soft sweet colors are just heart warming, with all the ribbons and our favorite childhood Beatrice Potter stories. Beautifully made and beautifully photographed. You are tops, Jerri.

  97. Barbara T says:

    These pennants are great. They make me smile and bring back fond memories. That is what art is all about – emotions. Thank you Jerri!

  98. Gloria C says:

    You have done it once again. I just marvel at your talent. I have fallen in love with this Peter Rabbit banner. Thanks for doing this tutorial.

  99. Cindy says:

    I love your choice of Beatrix Potter, perfect for Easter!

    I really love how you did the banner. I didnt think I wanted to get this die but you have totally changed my mind.

  101. I fell in love with this when I saw it, thank you so much for the fabulous tutorial. Now I just need all the dies! 😀

  102. Victoria Merrick says:

    After seeing your Easter banner tutorials, I ordered the the Spellbinders Penants and Banner dies so I can make some of these to give to my family and friends. I know I’m going to wear a path in my frontyard running to the mailbox everyday until they ariive so I can get started……..LOL!!!

    Jerri, Thank you for all of the inspiration you have given to all of us through your tutorials!
