Happy Banner

 
I have been furiously working on two scrapbooks for the Oregon Humane Society. They are so cute! The layouts are primarily for showing off all the success stories and cute pictures that people have sent back to the shelter. The stories melt my heart!
Coming up with scrapbook layout ideas has been a bit difficult, but taking it one day at a time helps. For one of my layouts I made this cute banner. This turned out to be really easy and you can make it to decorate anything. I have even seen banners on cakes!

Ingredients:
  • Paper (cardstock)
  • Circle punch or some way to cut out perfect circles
  • twine, yarn, or something to hang the circles on
  • glue

I used my Cricut to cut out all the circles, but you can use something else. You could even use scissors if you have the patience! Take your circle and fold it in half.


Put glue on one side and in the crack.


Slip the twine in between the two halves and fold the circle. Hold for a couple seconds to make sure it sticks.


Make a whole strand and decorate anything you can think of. What's cool about this is you can make it really large and use it as a party decoration. Also instead of circles, you could use diamonds to make a banner with flags!
