Colorful pennants will add some quick pizazz to any party or get together.
Our series ofparty pennantswent together so quick and easy even we were amazed. I think picking out the papers actually took longer than the cutting and assembling. The new set we’re showing here comes with 3 shapes, the traditional triangle shape, a scooped U shape and the notched flag. To make it as easy as possible we made the back layer to fold over the twine or ribbon. (We’re all about quick and easy.)
Group your pennant layers together. Crease along the score lines on each base layer. This will make lining up the front layers in the next step go a bit faster.
The front layers can be glued to the background or you can use pop-dots to add depth and thickness.
I like to arrange the pennants in the order they will be hanging before folding them over the ribbon or twine. Then once they are hung over the ribbon I glue the folded pennant together along the lower portion only. That way I keep the glue away from the ribbon, plus the pennant slides freely and I can easily adjust them after hanging.
You might also enjoy using the pretty pennants to add a splash of color to your creative space or along a chalkboard, fireplace mantel, mirror or bookshelf. This sort of project really lends itself to using a variety of prints so don’t forget to look thru your paper scraps. The actual cutting file for these use smaller pieces of paper, approximately 3″x5″. Like any svg cutting file thePaper Party Pennantscan be enlarged or reduced to suit your needs. You could even make them small enough to decorate a gift package.
Life may not be the party we hope for, but while we are here we may as well dance.
