Happy National Craft Month everyone! Hello, it’s Ali LePere here! I decided to make a simple pennant flag banner as my first craft of the month! What better way to celebrate this month than by brightening up my work space? Plus, the banner will double as St. Patrick’s Day decor!
- Tombow Xtreme Adhesive
- Tombow MONO Aqua Liquid Glue
- Colorful Cardstock (5 pieces)
- Small paper punches
I cut my pieces of paper in half and longways and then folded each paper in half.
I cut a zigzag line down the folded paper, making several diamond shaped cut outs.
Typically, I don’t draw out lines to cut on a project like this. I don’t need these to be perfectly shaped or sized. All I want is for them to be close! However, I wanted to give y’all a visual of the zigzag line.
I set aside my diamond cut outs and remaining scrap paper.
With the scrap paper left over from the previous step, I made a bunch of shapes with my small paper punches. I’ll be using these to decorate my pennant flags.
Next, I applied three dots of glue to one side of the pennant flag using the pen tip of my Tombow MONO Aqua Liquid Glue. I chose the MONO Aqua Liquid Glue because it dries fairly quickly and gives me an enormous amount of control with the pen tip.
I stuck the paper shapes from step three on each glue dot. Then, I proceeded to repeat steps four and five until I finished decorating all of my pennant flags. After that, I went downstairs, grabbed a snack and let my pennant flags dry for a few minutes.
Using the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive, I rolled an adhesive line down the middle of the back of my pennant flag.
I carefully slipped the pennant flag underneath the yarn, lining up the the crease with the yarn. Then, I folded over the paper, making the diamond shape into a triangle shape. Since the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive is so tough, I won’t have to worry about dry time or the paper shape popping open.
I’ll be repeating Step six and seven until all of my pennant flags are on the yarn.
Thank you for following along with the tutorial! I hope you get a chance to stretch your creativity during National Craft Month.
