Tuesday Tutorial using Samantha Walker's Woven Banner Set!

Happy Tuesday all!  I am up on Samantha Walker's Blog today to share with you a tutorial on how to put together Samantha's Woven Banner Set...one of her Silhouette cuts!  So, let's get started!

Start by going into your Silhouette library, find your Woven Banner Set cut and pull it up.  The whole cut will fit on one sheet of paper.  The best thing to do is select patterned paper that is double sided, so when you weave it together, you see to patterns.  Go ahead and cut it out.

Here is what it should look like after you have cut it out.

First you will want to take to pieces and place them same pattern sizes together.  I have found that you don't want to glue them together until you are done weaving.  You will have a total of six banners pieces when you are finished...two different patterns.

Start off by going by rows at the top.  Pull the underside pieces over the top pieces.

Weave all the way across from left to right.  The top pieces will now be on the underside and the bottom pieces will be on the top.    

Start the next row by pulling the underside pieces to the top. Do this all the way across.  So, it is an over and under process.  

Continue until the whole pendant is finished and then adhere all of the edges so that the pendant does not come apart.

Finally, fold at the perforated lines at the top to complete the look of the banner.  I used the Samantha's Cool Summer Collection from Carta Bella to create the banner and then I embellished it.  I used ribbon to tie the whole banner together.  

How cut huh?  This banner is a perfect summer fun banner or customize it for any occasion.  Thanks for popping by today and I hope you give this cut a try.  It's way fun and so easy to put together.
