Summer Banner

Hello!  It’s Jennie McGarvey and I am so excited to share with you a fun and cheerful summer banner I recently created to hang with my mantle decor.


I used both the We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch Board and the We R Memory Keepers Pinwheel Punch Board for this project.  These made quick work of this simple project and I was able to get this hung on my fireplace in no time.

I chose a sheet of patterned paper from the Cake and Candles collection, a polka dot sheet from the Clearly Bold collection and a piece of card stock from my stash for the main parts of this project


I started creating the banner.  I cut 4 3.5”x4” pieces from the acetate paper and 2 of the same size from the Cake and Candles paper.  Then, I used the Banner Punch Board to create my banner pieces.


Once the banner pieces were finished, I made quick work of the pinwheels I would use to embellish the banner.  I simply cut 3” squares from my yellow sheet of card stock and then used the Pinwheel Punch board to do the rest.


Once I was finished punching and cutting my pinwheels I could assemble them to the banners.


I used my Evolution Advanced and Lifestyle Nesting Circle Dies to cut out 6 small circles to layer with my alphabet circles. Once I had those, I could layer the circles and alphabet stickers on my banner.




Now, I have a super cute banner that was easy to make.  The simplicity is not even noticeable thanks to the fun shapes and pinwheels!
