I've been seeing all these adorable banners that everyone is making and thought I'd give it a try. Looked easy. But it's not! It took me hours and I'm still not done! I should have found directions on Pinterest. Here's what I did...
I think I've mentioned that I love the patterned scrapbooking paper. I have a huge collection and let the kids use it for all our art projects. I have quite the stash at home and cut out enough large triangles to spell out "Welcome." Truth be told I was going for "Welcome to Kindergarten" but after I made welcome there was no way I was continuing on! Welcome will be just fine!
Next, I used my border maker thingy from Martha Stewart and punched away until I had enough to go around all three sides of the triangles.
I folded down the end of each triangle so that I could hang them on a ribbon.
When I was done crying, I cut out the letters and glued them down to the triangles. Voila! My banner without the ribbon! And all the other words (to Kindergarten).
I'm off to see what everyone else made!
My apron project is moving along and soon to be up and running! Stay tuned!
