Love Banner with Xyron

Wow...can you believe it is time to think about Valentine decorations and gifts, well today I am sharing with you an easy banner I created using one of my new "loves" from Xyron...the Teresa Collins Mega Runner. 
I began by cutting 4 pieces of 4 x 6 cardboard from an old box, corner punch them using a corner chomper and painting the edges using Deco Art White Gesso.
I used my Teresa Collins Mega Runner and applied the tape to the cardboard, love, love, how easy it glides over the pieces and drops the adhesive with out tearing up the cardboard and paper that I am using, I guess that is why I love it so much. Once I had my adhesive applied I placed my embossed white paper to the top of each cardboard piece. (NOTE: Each banner is made the same, so what ever I did for one of the banner I did for all four, excluding the letters, lol)
 BUT...I have a secret....between my Mega Runner and the Create A Sticker
 I think it is a close tie to my how I can run multiples through the machine and it is so fabulous for intricate die cuts.
Anyway...after you have all your die cuts from Spellbinders cut just make an assemble line, get your fabulous Teresa Collins Mega Runner from Xyron and adhere each of the pieces to the cardboard. 
Place a stripe the strip you ran through the Create A Sticker to the top. Add both a strip of pattern paper and scallop border to the top of each banner using your Teresa Collins Mega Runner. 
 Here is a closer look at each banner...Love all the layers, don't you?
 To make you letters...use you Xyron Glue Stick and cover each letter with glue.
 Layer each letter with pattern paper, turn over and remove the excess paper with an xacto knife.
 Adhere to the center of each of brown embossed pieces that are on pop dots.
I hope you make yourself a "Love Banner" using my super easy steps and of course your fabulous Xyron Adhesive. Sending you love and hugs. Pammejo
