Make a Chalkboard Banner using the Banner Punch Board. Easy DIY craft tutorial ideas for simple party decorations and home decor.
Everywhere you look you see banners, and why not? They are perfect party decorations for any party or event and, let’s face it, they are just so darn cute!
I love making banners and find myself making them all of the time because everyone wants their own personalized banner for each event or reason to celebrate. That is why I decided to make this chalkboard banner. It’s one banner that I can use over and over again. It’s brilliant if I do say so myself.
Supplies Used: Some links may be too similar items when exact items couldn’t be found online.
If you have never used the Banner Punch Board it is a pretty awesome little tool. It is made by We R Memory Keepers and allows you to quickly cut two different shaped banners in a lot of different sizes.

How to Make a Chalkboard Banner
Before any cuts are made, I prep the chalkboard cardstock by running chalk all over the sheet and then wiping clean. This helps the chalk stick to the cardstock better.
My chalkboard cardstock came in sheets of 6 x 12 inches. To get three banners out of a piece I cut 3 rectangles per sheet that measured 4 x 6 inches.
Then I brought in my trusty Banner Punch Board. This board really is very easy to use. There are measurements printed on the punch board to make sure you get the perfect banner every time. I am doing a flag shape, or what I like to call the dove-tail. Line the cardstock up according to the grid lines on the board and the cut with the swivel blade that is included.
There is also a hole punch on the top so I can make my holes perfectly aligned without having to get out extra tools.
Using chalk, spell out the word for your event or a word that inspires you. Today, my banner is going to say celebrate.
Using some ribbon, string the pennants together and the banner is complete! It really is that easy!
