The Paper Source Blog recently had a post with unique cards that you can make at one of their workshops. One was so adorable that I just had to try making it myself. As you can see from one of my recent posts, I heart making banners but I didn't think of making them mini size for a card. The Paper Source inspiration:
I used scraps of paper and folded them over.
I cut the pieces into mini-triangles, freehand. No template needed.
The triangles go over the string and glue them together to make sure they don't squirm up and down. Then glue the banner onto the card.
