banner tutorials

Happy birthday, Taylor! ღ Could you possibly point me in the direction of a tutorial for how to make a banner/header that incorporates both an image and a gif? Thank you so much, lovely!

I think you can incorporate a gif into any header/banner if you know how to incorporate a gif into an image but here are some tutorials for making headers that you can just set the gif into it.

Thanks to a request from a dear anon, here is how I made the two banners from the December’s Colours and Goals page from my journal. The pictures are dark because I took them at night, but otherwise I hope you like it! It’s pretty simple, I tried to break it down and explain as much as I could. :)

Ok so here’s the basic banner:

1. It’s better to draw in pencil first so you feel more safe, and even if you make a mistake, things work out. Use a ruler for better results! Draw a rectangle in the size you think looks better.

2. Draw two short parallel lines, one coming out of the middle of the box. The distance between the lines is the same as the height of your box. Connect the bottom line with the box.

3. Join the two parallel lines, and connect the bottom left dot of the the box with that bottom right corner, as shown bellow.

4. With the ruler and a black pen (or any of your preference really, I used a black Stabilo Fine 0.4 mm) go over the straight long lines.

5. And finish it off by hand, as shown bellow. It depends now: if you like banners rounder, don’t be so strict on the shape of lines and improvise, if you prefer straight clean banners, focus on the ruler work.

That’s it, well done!! The basic banner is perfect for one word subtitles/titles or topics.

This one was pretty simple. Now, the second one is the double banner! And it goes like this:

1. Repeat the previous banner.

2. Draw another rectangle but a bit bellow it and to the right. Preferably, with the same dimensions as the other one. (On insight, I drew the rectangle a little too much to the right. But try to put it where you feel it looks better.)

3. Remember the parallel lines and the connections? Do them in the right side of the box this time.

4. Now join the two rectangles with two diagonal lines, as shown bellow.

5. It’s ready now! Time to go over the straight lines with the pen and ruler.

6. By hand, go over the other ones.

7. To finish it off, paint the connection sections, shown bellow. 

And voilà!

That’s the tecnique, now it’s up to you! Don’t forget practice makes perfect, even if you suck at banners. Good luck!

I'm obsessed with Harry Potter. What kind of diys do you have for that? Thanks!

Sure thing, here are some of my recommendations:

DIY Harry Potter Wall Art

If you need some fandom-fueled motivation in your life, this might be a fine addition to your room or office.

DIY Harry Potter Cardboard Mirror of Erised

If you’ve got the time, the resources, the room, and most importantly, the motivation (maybe with the help of the wall art above?), this would be more than awesome to have in the house. Greet your guests with this. Why not?

DIY Feather Pen

Ink pots and spills not required. 

sew-much-to-do: a visual collection of sewing tutorials/patterns, knitting, diy, crafts, recipes, etc.

Alright guys, I’ve finally made a big note-taking guide! I had some extra time this afternoon, so I sat down with some Arrested Development and made this. This guide was made with my new Staedtler pens, which are a treat to work with! It’s not a guide on how to take notes with good content, just notes that are visually appealing. :)

Also, I learned a lot of what I know about note-taking from other studyblrs, so I’ve linked some of their tutorials down below.

Title fonts: I’ve been doing the blocky text for a while now but recently I found this tutorial on fonts from pensandmachine, which made me want to try that cursive font and explains how to write fun fonts really well.

Banners: I don’t remember where I first learned how to make banners, but this tutorial from othertypist is incredible for drawing a bunch of different banners.

Brackets/Underlines: A google image search for “fancy underline,” “fancy swirl,” or “fancy bracket” is your best friend here. There are an incredible number of different things to check out.

I hope this helped someone take more fun notes! I had a great time making it. :) And a huge thank you to all the other studyblrs out there who have been my inspiration and my guides in becoming better at studying every day. 


I was asked by someone in Instagram to make a tutorial on banners and headers. Since I’m not that good with words, I decided to show you guys how to do it instead. I hope you guys enjoy this video and I hope that you find it useful. :)

Procrastinating with the essay I have to write so I decided to take a leaf out of since-he-was-eighteen‘s book and make a banner!
