Back to School Banner

Hi Everyone - I have another Little Yellow Bicycle project to share today.

**Please note that the giveaway previouly listed here has now closed - and was won by Melissa Frank. Details here.**
Back to School Banner
I was totally inspired to make this banner after constantly admiring the fabulous work of Cassie Box. If you haven't seen her blog you really should check it out! It's packed full of fun party ideas and the most wonderful banners you have ever seen!
 

I made this banner for my son’s classroom. One thing I discovered is that banners are so much fun to make – but really hard to photograph!

I have kept the decoration simple to let the great colors stand out, and on the end pennants I have added pieces from the Clear Cut Shapes and made some mini flags with the Stick Pins and a piece from the Canvas Stickers Borders.


Each “flag” of the banner consists of two triangles with a star, rosette and letter mounted on top with dimensional tape. It’s a project that can be adapted to any occasion and to any size.

I have used 3d mounting tape to add some dimension to the elements of the banner which really help them stand out.


It really was a challenge to photograph this piece – but I am sure it is going to look great in the entrance of my son’s classroom!

Check back tomorrow for another project using this great collection

I am linking up this project to these websites here.
