  • Permanent markers (Sharpie, Bic, etc)
  • White string ($3 at JoAnn) —alternatives: yarn, embroidery floss, ribbon

Instructions:

The tutorial is at this link. However, the instructions are simple.

1. Wrap some white string around a ruler closely packed together (see photo). Cover the ruler with masking tape if you want to protect it. It also helps to tape the loose ends of the string to the ruler.

2. Using a permanent marker, color several straight lines onto the string. Flip the ruler over  and color the other side too.

3. Set string aside for later.

If you don’t have white twine, you can use white or light colored yarn. Make sure the marker doesn’t bleed though. Or use ribbon or embroidery floss (do not color it).

  • Card stock —alternatives: provided below

Making the scrap book paper gift tags are easy. First you will need to make the card stock templates.

2. Then cut out the card stock templates.

3. There are 6 different gift tag shapes. Choose the shapes you want for your banner. Set the others aside.
