Jane's April tutorial ...

Ever wondered how to get that perfect notch on your banners?  Sick of cutting them too short or too long?   Tearing your hair out because one side is lopsided?  Well have no fear .. I'm  here to share the secret.

Cut your piece of patterned paper or cardstock to the required length and width.

With the RIGHT side facing you gently bend the two outer sides together.

TIP - be light handed - you are merely holding the two sides in place not folding them together.

With your scissors cut on the diagonal from the bottom right corner across the desired width.

TIP  - the wider the cut, the deeper the notch.

Hey presto - one equally spaced, non lopsided banner.

and here it is used on a card I did for UnstampaBelles.
