The banner shape can be used for more than just making banners. Laura Achilles made these two layouts and found new ways to incorporate the banner stamps. With her first layout, she used the large banner triangle to create the rays of the sun.
Notice how the banner triangles are not completely flat, but have a bit of a curl to them, making it look even more like sun rays.
Laura's next layout uses the small banner in a traditional way across the page, but also look in the lower left corner.
Supplies used: Banner Set small and large
October Afternoon, Scenic Route, Basic Grey, Jenni Bowlin papers
American Crafts and October Afternoon Alphabet stickers
The banner stamp can make a little flag when turned on it's side. Attach to a toothpick and it makes a great golf flag! Laura also used the gingham pattern from the banner stamp, but cut the shapes into clouds for this Mini Golf layout.
It's fun to find new ways to use your stamp shapes. Especially ones with traditional shapes, like circles, triangles, square frames, etc. can often be modified and used in a way that was not originally intended by the designer. If you've done something different with a stamp shape, be sure to share a link in the comments. We'd love to see it!
