Dimensional Banners

by Toni Storie

Use Scor-Pal products to create dimensional banners for your card sentiments.


  • Scor-Pal or Scor-Buddy and Scor-Tool

  • Cardstock strip

  • Paper trimmer

  • Square punch or die

  • Dimensional tape

  • Sentiment stamp

  • Stamps, cardstock, and other embellishments as needed to complete the project


  1. Step 1

    Stamp a sentiment on a long, narrow strip of cardstock. Trim the strip 1.25” from either side of the stamped image.

  2. Place the strip against the top fence of the Scor-Buddy and score at 7/8” and 1”. Turn the cardstock 180 degrees and score again at 7/8” and 1”.

  3. Step 2

    Crease on the 1” score lines, folding banner tails toward the back.

  4. Crease on the 7/8” score lines, folding the banner tails forward again.

  5. Step 3

    Trim the banner tails with the corner of a square punch or die, and place dimensional adhesive on the back of the banner.

  6. Step 4

    For an angled banner, center and stamp a sentiment on a strip of cardstock.

  7. Step 5

    Align the edge of the sentiment at the desired angle on the first of the 1/8” grooves. Score on the first and second of these grooves.

  8. Turn the cardstock strip 180 degrees and repeat the step above.

  9. Step 6

    Crease the inside score back and the outside score forward, as before.

  10. Step 7

    Trim banner tails with a square punch or die and apply dimensional adhesive as before.

  11. Step 8

    Use the banner to embellish a card.

what company makes that sending smiles stamp?

Thanks, this was great. I also really appreciate the tips on cutting the notch out. Mine never turn out centered. I will have to see if the die cut method helps me.

The "sending smiles" sentiment is from a Flourishes stamp set called Tulips for Friends.

Awesome tutorial! I love the dies that I have seen that cut cool dimensional banners but the problem with that is they can only be used with sentiments that fit that die cut. I am a thrifty gal so I have never purchased them. I LOVE this technique of making our own and they will fit ANY sentiment we have! Thanks!

This tutorial is SO helpful, Toni!I've seen homemade banners done, but haven't tried it yet. Now that I've seen your tutorial, I'll be able to do my own!

Many thanks for this great yet simply explained tutorial. Will be so very helpful for those of us that do not want to buy dies that limit the stamps we can use. So glad this was shown again on the splitcoaststampers newsletter.
