A while back I saw this banner from the girls at Eighteen25. Isn't it cute? The great thing about it is it works for every event. Celebrate. So smart. I love it.
When we had an upcoming party I decided to make one myself. I took a different spin on it, using paper instead of fabric.
I used my Silhouette to create the letters and pennant flags. (To create the flag, simple make a rectangle and then edit points and drag the middle in to create a v-shape. Then mirror the image above and meld to undo the line in between. That way you can just fold the piece you've created and you'll have a back and front to it.)
For the letters I had some Silhouette adhesive cardstock, which made the project crazy fast. I just peeled and stuck those babies on. I put them on the front and back so the banner is double-sided and can hang in a doorway. I hung the flag on a string of hemp.
And honestly, I like the banner so much that it's been up for two weeks. My family asked why it's still up and I always find a reason to leave it. Aren't we always celebrating something? :)
If you want to make a fabric one, you'll find the original tutorial from Eighteen25 HERE.
Thanks for stopping by.
