I just love making banners. They are the perfect addition to any party or celebration! My banners are often cut by hand or by my cricut and can be time consuming. So when I saw the Celebrate Banner kit from Stampin Up I was very excited. This would be a project that could be created in no time at all – I love projects like this! This kit has everything you need to create your banner. I did change things up a bit to make it my own and just love how it turned out! Let me show you how I made it!
To make this project with the banner, circle garland and tassels – you will need the following:
- Celebration Basics Kit
- The add on kit comes in two colors. Berumuda Bay or Calypso Coral – I used the Bermuda Bay Kit
- Classic Stampin’ Ink – I used Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral and Bermuda Bay
- Ribbon – I used Crushed Curry chevron ribbon and Pumpkin Pie chevron ribbon
The Basic Banner Kit includes your banner, adhesive strips, string and some cute addons like paper bags and tags.
The Add on kits have the tissue paper for your tassels, a spray bottle you can add ink to to spritz (I did not use this today), some colored paper, some adhesive tags and a colorful garland.
So let’s get started!
I started with my tissue paper tassels. They are quite easy to make. First I rubbed ink onto the tissue papers.
Then cut strips – leaving about 1/2 an inch uncut at the top and then rolled to make a tassel.
At the top of the tissue paper is an adhesive strip so it is easy to create the tassel.
Next I worked on the Celebrate letters for the banner. The letters come white so they are easily customized.
On these I also rubbed ink over the letters. I wanted to bring in another color so I used the Calypso Coral. I like the pop of color this brings to the banner.
I set these aside to dry (they dry pretty quick) and began to work on the banner. I wanted to add some more colors to the banner so I grabbed the paper from the add on kit and began cutting 4×4 squares to go on the front of each banner piece. I also rounded the edges with a corner rounder and inked the edges with the Bermuda Bay ink. I adhered each square onto the banner and then using dimensionals added the letters.
Next the banner was strung together with the baker’s twine provided in the basic kit.
To add some more color I tied on pieces of chevron ribbon in between each banner piece.
The banner looks so pretty hanging up.
I added the colorful garland on top of the banner.
Next up went the tissue paper tassels.
I love how fun and festive this is!
Don’t you think this would be perfect for a party – and of course you can change the color scheme to match your party!
