Every year the company I work for has a big convention and thousands of demonstrators from all over the US and Canada come through the home office on a tour. On my floor my desk is the very first thing they see as they come in the door so I decided that they needed a pretty welcome.
This ribbon banner was very easy to make and much better then looking at a boring brown cabinet.
All you need is a length of rope or twine and lots of pieces of ribbon.
I cut each of my pieces of ribbon about 12 inches long but you could really do it longer or shorter depending on how you wanted your banner to look. I also used 13 different ribbons all of different widths and textures.
To tie the ribbon onto the rope tie each strand into a simple slip not around the rope.
Make sure you tie them all the same way so they will look more uniform.
Keep adding ribbons until you are at the length desired for your banner.
For the letters I used Silver Glimmer Paper and cut the letters using my Big Shot.
On the back of the letters a glued a paper clip using E6000 glue (love that stuff) so I can attach the letters. This also makes the banner interchangeable so I could use it again for a birthday or party.
Put the letters on the banner using the paperclip to attach to a strand of ribbon and there you have it!
I hope they (and you) like it!
