Happy Birthday Pennant Banner: Tutorial

This pennant banner made from scrapbook paper was not only free to make but also took only about 20 minutes to make.  No brainer!

Here is a simple tutorial.

1. Print your letters.  I used these from Martha Stewart.
2.  Pick your scrapbook paper.  I used 12x12 which will give you six pennants per sheet.
3. Fold your paper in half to make a rectangle.
4. Mark the top of your paper at the middle and the bottom in thirds.  If you look closely you can see the pencil marks.
5.  Use a ruler and connect the dots.  Look closely again and you can see the outline of your pennants. 6.  Cut them out.
7. Cut out your letters.  Punch holes in the top corners of your pennants. Glue letters to your pennants.
8.  Thread a length of ribbon through your pennants making sure to leave enough on either end to make hanging easy. 

That's it!  Big impact on decor...tiny impact on time.... zero impact on budget! And one happy little two year old who still walk around singing "Happy Birthday To My Party..."!!


PS... Come back Thursday for a Shabby Apple giveaway!
