Hi! It’s me Sandra welcoming you to the American Crafts blog today with three ideas for DIY Spring banners. These fun and easy banners are the perfect decoration to add a touch of spring to your home. They would even look great on a scrapbook layout!
- Patterned paper and embellishments (I used Shimelle's Never Grow Up collection)
- Die-cut shapes
- Hole punch
- Eyelet setter
- Foam pads
How to: First, choose a style/shape for the base of your banner. A few ideas I thought of are clouds, circles, stars, tassels, polaroid photo frames, tags, florals and butterflies. This step is the most fun because anything can count! I used two tag die-cuts from my stash to create two of the banners. The third banner has a fussy-cut style.
I arranged floral embellishments and two handmade embellishments (a fringed butterfly and a circle element) onto white cardstock. To hang the banner, I set two eyelets on the left and right side and attached a string. For the final step, I cut the white cardstock, leaving a small edge around the embellishments.
The second banner is made of five tags that I die-cut from patterned papers. Then, I added two holes at the top of each banner element. This is where the string goes. I created a variety of handmade elements to decorate this banner. You can find a layered fringed tag, a layered star element, and some handmade paper tassels. As a final touch, I added epoxy stickers, little stars, enamel dots and some white thread.
The third banner is made of five cute tags that I also die-cut from colorful the patterned paper. The tags are threaded onto a string to hold the banner. I had so much fun decorating my tags with layered stickers, epoxy stickers, and handmade paper tassels. ‘Never grow up’ has some charming layered floral stickers. These would also look great on spring cards!
As you can see, there are a number of options to create banners, and it’s up to your creativity to decorate and style them.
I really hope that you like my banner inspiration with the ‘Never Grow Up’ collection. Wishing you a lovely day.
