One of my very favorite ways to decorate is with banners! They are so quick and easy to make, can be big or small, and make a big statement! Today, as part of the Summer Fun Series over at Girl Loves Glam, I’m sharing this fun and colorful Summer Banner with you.
I started with some blank wood banner pieces. I knew I wanted this to be bright and colorful, but I had a hard time finding paper that was bright enough for me. I finally checked in my stash of paper, and guess what?! I had the perfect paper. 🙂 I should have looked there to begin with. I traced the wood pieces and then glued my paper on.
Once all the paper was glued down and dry, using my Cricut and Cricut Craft Room, I cut out the white bracket shapes and the letters with coordinating cardstock. I used pop up squares to mount both the shape and letter on the banner shape.
I used some bakers twine to tie the banner all together. At this point I thought I was finished, but then thought more about it and decided to add ribbon to the bottom of the banner shapes. It is the perfect finishing touch!
I simply love the way this turned out and I’m excited to have it hanging up in my living room for the Summer time!
