We start them all off with the icon copy and pasted to a 300x100 canvas. ^^ Align this one to the right so we can make the sky the background for the icon.
I found this image (the original image wasn't cut up). I used the sky and maniped the background.
Then I used Image>Ajustments>Variations to color the background an orangish color. (use Midtones and click the respective colors until they look right.)
Next duplicate the icon. Horizontally flip the dulicated icon and align it to the right side of your original icon. Use a blurred circle eraser in order to lightly erase the part with teh character on it. It allows for blending between icon and banner.
Now use that picture that we had back up in part 2 and align the girl on the right side. Use only the part that "didnt appear" in the icon. Under that picture's layer, make a white border around the girl like they did in the original icon.
Add text and you're done!

THIS TYPE OF BANNER MAKING IS GOOD FOR: Banners you feel like doing a bit of manipping.... -_-' I dont suggest using it that often unless you have too.
