This DIY birthday banner with patterned paper project was originally created by Amy Cowley for the Core’dinations Core Blog.
Why buy a typical birthday banner at a party store when you can use your own patterned cardstock to create a beautiful DIY birthday banner! Chances are you wont even have to buy new paper to create this project; use what you already have and supplement your stock if need be. Change up the color scheme to fit anybody’s birthday or special occasion, and let the celebrations begin!
DIY Birthday Banner with Patterned Paper Supplies:
- Core’dinations Core Basics Patterned Paper
- Core’diantions Basics White Cardstock
- Darice Baker’s Twine or Ribbon
- Adhesive Dimension Squares
- Digital Die Cutting Machine (optional)
Step 1. Using my digital die cutting machine, I cut the banner shapes, circles, and letters out of the patterned paper and white cardstock. If you don’t have a digital die cutting machine, you can cut the banner shapes out by hand and use a hole punch for the circles. If you’re cutting them by hand, it may be easier to make one and cut that out first and use it as a template for the rest of your cutouts. My banner shapes are 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″. The circles are 2 5/8″ across.
Step 2. Once you have everything cut out, lay out your shapes and decide where you want each circle to be placed on the banner.
Step 3. Use your adhesive to adhere the circles to the banner shapes.
Step 4. Put your dimension squares on the back of your letters.
Step 5. Adhere the letters to the center of the circles.
Step 6. Use your twine or ribbon to thread through each banner piece, stringing them together.
Step 7. Hang up your DIY birthday banner in the center of your celebration and get the party started!
