Make a Chalkboard Banner using the Banner Punch Board. A complete step-by-step for this party banner tutorial.
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.

How to Make a Chalkboard Banner:
Before any cuts are made, prep the chalkboard cardstock by running chalk all over the sheet and then wiping clean. This helps the chalk stick to the cardstock better.
The chalkboard cardstock came in sheets of 6 x 12 inches. To get three banners out of one piece, cut 3 rectangles per sheet that measure 4 x 6 inches.
The Banner Punch 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.
We are 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 the holes are 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, our banner is going to say celebrate.
Using some ribbon, string the pennants together and the banner is complete!
It really is that easy!

So cute! I love how simple it is!
You have opened my eyes to something very new. I have never heard of a banner punch board, but I now really really want one. You must have so many good buntings and banners with that. Amazing. Your chalkboard banner looks really nice!
