Banner Punch Board from We r Memory Keepers:
I love the Banner Punch Board, it makes cutting banners so quick and easy.
In the past, I have cut banners by hand or I would pull out my Cricut.
The Banner Punch Board is super handy and I keep it on my shelf with my paper cutters so it is easy to pull out and cut my banners in no time.
Here is a little video showing how to use the Banner Punch Board.
Give Thanks Banner:
We are going to make a total of 10 pennant shapes for our banner. One shape per letter of "Give Thanks".
Cut 10, 6 x 6 inch squares of solid colored cardstock. These will be the first layer of the pennant.
Cut 10, 5 ½ x 5 ½ inch squares of patterned paper. These will be for the second layer of the pennant.
Feel free to mix and match colors and patterns.
Line the paper on the banner punch board and cut the pieces into pennant shapes.
Next, adhere the patterned pieces to the solid pieces.
Using the hole punch from the board, punch your holes on the top two corners of each pennant.
Cut out 10 circles using the same color of solid cardstock, and 10 scallop circles using the same patterned paper.
These I cut with paper punches and then inked the edges with my brown ink pad.
Using a pencil, curl up the edges of the scallop circles.
Place a letter sticker on the cardstock sticker, and layer it onto the scalloped circle.
Adhere the circle onto the scalloped circle then glue it to the pennant. Then place a letter sticker on each pennant to spell out GIVE THANKS.
Run Baker's Twine through the holes to connect the banners.
Cut pieces of brown ribbon and tie them in a knot between each pennant.
Then add some fall leaves to tie everything together.
I love how it all came together! Now my fall shelf looks complete.
