Laura Rumble – Happy Easter Banner
Laura here today sharing a banner made with part of the Easter Banner cut file from Pretty My Page.
The download also comes with a panel that you can mount onto the pennants and adhere the letter on top. I’ve just cut the pennants and used them ‘naked’. I’ve also got the letters popped to one side to use as a title on a scrapbook layout.
It’s a very simple make and looks really good hung up on the wall. The only issue is I cannot get decent photos however hard I try! It looks better than the photos let on.
I’ve added 3 acrylic shapes, one to each of the plain pennants. I’ve nested them on a tangle of white thread for a little extra detail. I also added 3-5 sequins per pennant – you can never have enough sparkle!
One tip I can give you, that I picked up along the way… when stringing your banners find the middle of the twine and the middle pennant. Thread this one first and get it in position and then add the others either side. This will save you from sliding the first pennant from one end of the twine all the way to the other. Unfortunately I figured this out about half way through so I did a lot of pennant scooching along twine! On the upside I can say if you cut these from Bazzill textured cardstock they do hold up to a fair amount of sliding without any tears or damage. You can find the download here. You can also purchase any of the banners in a pre-cut format so you can decorate them however you’d like even if you don’t have a die-cutter. You can find the Easter one here.
