In my American Banner post below I do share some links on where I got the paper kit and some Amazon Affiliate links to products. This is not a sponsored post but just a project I really loved making!
I am so excited to share this America Banner with you today!! In April I went to Snap Conference and while I was there I took a few craft classes. This America Banner class was one of them. I didn’t finish it in class because I was too busy talking and networking but it was something I thought was so cute that I knew I had to finish it. So I got it done just in time for the 4th of July!
The America Banner kit I received was from Pebbles in my Pocket and they have all kinds of kits available that are ready to make. This is not a sponsored post – I am just mentioning it in case you like getting projects all prepped and ready for you to create. Everything was included in the kit except for the tape and glue.
I followed the instructions to fold the papers accordian style (the papers came prescored in the kit)
The papers came with circles punched on one end – at this point you want to work with the opposite end. Pinch the papers together in the middle, add a strip of tacky tape down one side and secure the top two ends together.
Now using your glue gun, glue the doily onto the front and back as shown in the picture.
In the kit is a second set of papers that are scallop half circles. These have been prescored to show you where to fold them. It folds just enough to sit over the top and down the front on the doily. I used the hot glue gun to secure this in place as well.
Next add the letters that spell out America – I adhered these with glue dots.
Remember earlier I mentioned the small circles punched into the papers. Well these will be at the top now -on each side. Run the string through each of your half circles spelling out America. This makes quite a big banner. I am planning on putting it over my dessert/snack table at my big firework show in July. For now I asked my kids to hold it up so you can see how big it is.
I can’t wait to decorate my table with it!!
