The holidays are super crazy and even crazier when you are sick! I am finally starting to feel more like myself so back to blogging I go…
Last weekend, a friend and I threw a Baby Shower for a very dear friend of ours. Due to the proximity to Christmas, we decided to make the shower a Christmas shower! I spent countless hours on etsy.com looking for Holiday banners to decorate for the shower and then it dawned on me…why wouldn’t I make my own, customized to the theme of the shower? Duh…so off to the craft section in Walmart I go…
All you need to accomplish this project is:
- Construction Paper
- Letter Stencils
- Hole Puncher
- Scissors OR Paper Cutter
- A Black Marker
- A Glue Stick
This project is self explanatory and super easy!
Step 1: Cut white construction paper to 5 x 3 pieces for the letters that you will trace from the stencils. The number of pieces is entirely up to you…whatever phrase you choose!
Step 2: Trace letters from stencils onto construction paper. Color in letters with a black marker.
TIP: A sharpe marker will give a darker black result!
Step 3: Use a glue stick to glue paper with letters onto another sheet of construction paper (choose a color that is contrasting). Using your paper cutter or scissors, cut around the paper, creating a border. See below…
Step 3: Repeat Step 2 but with another piece of construction paper (choose a color that is contrasting). Use a hole puncher to put holes in the top two corners of each letter. String together letters with ribbon.
