TpT Store Banner {Tried it Tuesday}

This weekend I gave creating a banner for my Teachers pay Teachers store a shot.  It was really easy, thanks to Camping Teacher.  I had seen some templates for this on TpT, so I searched for a blank free one.  I used this one from Camping Teacher because it also came with directions!  {Many people also sell/giveaway templates with designs, but I wanted to make one to match my bog, so I chose the free one.}

Once I opened up the template in PPT, there was a slide the exact size of the banner.  All I had to do was insert the graphics and texts that I wanted.
After making the banner look like I wanted, I just saved it as a JPEG so that I had the image.
Then choose "My TpT" and go to your dashboard.
Choose dress up your store (third one).
Upload your JPEG image.  Then you have to put a link to one of your products. If someone clicks the banner, it will take them there.  You cannot put a link to your blog or FB page. I made the link go to my freebie.  

After you submit it, it will tell you that your banner has to be approved by TpT before it is posted.  Mine was up within a day.

All done!
