Copy, paste and align the icon to the right. (duh)
Fill the background with #D9D9D9.
Copy and paste the background. Duplicate 3 times and align them side by side.
Add a swirl brush... thing... You can add anything there... It's just suppose to decorate the banner.
Use a gradient to make the bottom... Copy the color using an eyedrop tool.
Duplicate the icon and flip horrizontally. Go around the little crest thing on the left and using a blurred eraser, erase the background of the duplicated image until you can't tell where the icon stops and starts.
Add text and random tiny text below it. :D You're done!

THIS TYPE OF BANNER MAKING IS GOOD FOR: People who are lazy... it's a rather simple banner when you look at it. -_-'
