Hey everyone! Hope you are having a great day. Well, it is that time of year...time to pull out the Easter decorations and start decorating the house. I can't believe I made this banner a year ago now for Core'dinations. I still love their line of patterned papers....sometimes the simple is just perfect. This banner was inspired by a table runner I saw in a local shop. So cute....and this was so quick and easy.
Bunny Banner Supplies:
- Core Basics Patterned Paper Yellow Hexagon
- Core Basics Patterned Paper Orange Flower
- Core Basics Patterned Paper Light Green Crosshatch
- Core Basics Patterned Paper Teal Plaid
- Core Basics Patterned Paper Light Pink Large Dot
- 2 sheets Core Basics White 80lb 12x12 Cardstock
- Darice Hemp Twine
- Cotton Balls
- Electronic Cutting Machine or Template
Step 1: Cut each sheet of patterned paper to 8x10 inches. I chose to make my banner 5 sheets wide, but you can make more or less according to your needs.
Step 2: To create the pennant shape; on the 8 inch side make a mark at 4 inches. This is the middle of the paper. On both edges, make a mark at 2 inches from the bottom. Connect the dots to create your shape and cut out. Do this for each of your papers.
Step 3: Cut bunny image using an electronic cutter, or a quick search on Google will find many "Easter Bunny Templates" that you can print and cut. I cut my bunnies to 6 inches on the Core'dinations White Cardstock. I was easily able to cut all 5 with two pieces of paper. Attach one bunny to each of the pennant shapes.
Step 4: Arrange your pennants in the order you would like and hot glue twine to the back to create the hanger. I chose to place mine very close together so the banner wouldn't dip quite so much.
Step 5: Attach cotton balls to tails of bunnies and hang. hint: You don't want to attach the tails before you glue the pennants together as the extra dimension makes it harder to place the glue.
I hope you make this fun banner this spring for your family and friends to enjoy.
