Pennant Birthday Banner with extra frills

 I've only made one very simple banner before to use as a photo prop so this was all trial and error. Since it was a Breakfast at Tiffany's Maggie's theme party I wanted it to have all the extra details. This was SOOOO much fun to make. 

scrapbooking paper
ribbon (banner)
ribbon (extra frills)
card stock
hole punch
hot glue gun
double sided tape (optional)

Picked out complimenting color of scrapbook paper

Made a template on card stock and traced on the back of the scrapbooking paper

made the pattern (that I changed several times)

I wanted the circles large enough to fit the triangle but not go over. I tried tracing a can, ribbon, glass, bowl (was too large) and finally found a beer mug that worked perfectly. This was my hubby's idea of contributing to the craft and to celebrate he should fill that beer mug. :)

Attached the circles with hot glue and used a hole punch for the ribbon holes. Don't make the holes close to the edge or it might not be able to hold the weight and rip. 

 I printed and cut out letters. I know there is an easier process but I used a textured pearlized paper that ink would not print on. Too late to run to the craft store. If you use plain card stock you could eliminate this step by printing and then just cut the circle with the letter on it.

Set out my example. HIGHLY recommend because I changed the pattern a few more times.

Attached letters with double sided tape

Ready to string on ribbon

Cut ribbon to add extra frills to the banner :)

Btw, Murtle will be shaking her head about how many steps this craft involves. Haha! Stay tuned for our post "When Murtle and Gertrude craft TOGETHER" Uh oh!
