Wedding Shower Banner
Scrapbooking paper to cut letters from or Precut Diecut Letters
Cricut Personal Cutting System (if you have one or can borrow one, if not buy precut letters)
Cricut Font Cartridge (I used the one called Type Candy Font)
Tape Runner Adhesive
2 packages of Pre-Cut Pennant Banners (I purchased mine at my local Michael's Craft Store)
Foam Paint Brush
1. I started by cutting my letters for my banner. The banner says "From Miss to Mrs." with 2 hearts in the banner too. I made my letters 4.5" big and the hearts were about the same size.
2. Once all my letters were cut, I used my tape runner to attach them to the middle of the pennant piece.
|If you look close you can see the tape runner adhesive on the back of the "F"|
*IF you want to make sure the letters stick permanently, at this point you would use the foam paint brush a light layer of ModPodge over each pennant. Originally I was going to do this step, but opted not to so the letters could be removed and replaced with different color letters to use the banner again at future bridal showers.
3. Once all the letters and hearts were attached, I laid them out and threaded the twine through the holes on the top of the pennants. Make sure you leave a couple of feet of twine at the beginning so you have plenty of twine for tying up the banner.
4. Cut the twine from the twine ball and you are finished.
