Hi, everyone, Patricia here to share a birthday banner with you. With just pattern paper, twine, some adhesive, and a die cutting machine or punches, it really is easy to make your own banner. What is really best about making your own banner, is you get to pick your colors.
My daughter's birthday party theme is rainbow, so I knew I wanted bright colors. This banner was quick to put together because I kept it simple, using lots of repeating pattern papers.
I used the Silhouette, and stayed with one color for the circles with the cut out letters.
Then backed those green circles with another circle using a simple contrasting pattern paper in yellow.
For the circles with the cut out hearts, I did the same thing, except instead of the green polka dot paper, I chose the pink polka dots, and repeated those throughout the banner.
I made the blue folded flowers using a border punch and a score board. Then layered a scalloped orange polka dot circle right on top. The pink polka dot hearts were attached with foam adhesive. I kept the banner light because it is so long. And then the last thing to do...attaching each piece with a piece of twine.
