This is such a simple banner and so beautiful once finished! Easy, easy, easy. This Scrapbooking Paper Banner Sign is great for birthdays, weddings, showers or any other kind of party! It is made from scrapbooking paper that I already had in my craft dresser, printed letters and some twine. My girlfriends and I made this while drinking wine and gossiping at girls night. I did one as an example first (and took pictures below) then my friends and I made the rest of the banner together. The cutting is what takes the most time so I encourage you to have some friends over, give them lots of wine and hope that they can cut straight!
Materials needed: Scrapbooking paper, Printed Letters, Tape, Ribbon
1. PRINT OUT LETTERS for the banner by downloading Happy Birthday Banner Printable PDF and cut around them. Does not need to be close or perfect, the letters look great even if they are cut with a border. If you would like to add your child’s name or age you can download All Letters HERE here and All Numbers HERE
2. CUT BANNER TEMPLATE out using plain white paper. I folded the paper hot dog style and cut dimensions noted below. You can cut it to be any size you want but these dims worked for the letter size I printed.
3. CUT OUT SCRAPBOOK BANNER pieces using the template. I put the template down on back of scrapbook and just did a quick rough pen outline. I love the Scrapbooking cardstock paper stacks at Micheals and Joannes, they are 19.99 but usually on sale for 11$ (use their apps for 40% off anytime!). Here is the link for above FLORAL FLAIR
4. ADHERE LETTERS TO THE BANNER. I used double sided matting tape from the dollar tree store!!
