Challenge Me Tuesday: Banners without triangles

Happy Tuesday everyone! It's challenge day here at Practical Scrappers, and here's how it works: Today we show off our designer's responses to last week's challenge, as well as feature some fun examples submitted by our readers. We then issue the new challenge for the week, and ask you to send us yours, so that we might share it next week. Sound like fun? Send us your email, with CMT and the challenge in the subject to practicalscrapperslayouts(at)gmail(dot)com, along with a link to the project and your name.

Our last challenge was to use banners with shapes other than the usual triangular shapes. It seems from the responses, that the rectangular pennant with the triangles cut from them is the next most popular shape, followed by folded scalloped circles.  Honestly though, the possibilities for shapes to use in a banner are endless, so have some fun, and mix it up a bit!

Practical Scrapper Erin  used Momenta die cuts and stickers joined by stitching to create the banner on this page. ( scraplift of a layout by N.Nowosad)
