Earlier this month Debbie shared how to make a banner card. I was delighted to see how simple it was to make with very adorable (and seemingly time consuming) results. Needing to make a few birthday cards, this seemed like a perfect opportunity to try my hand at banner cards.
I picked a double sided piece of paper and made a fold. I then cut 6 similar sized triangles. I was worried about making them all the same size, but I actually really like that they're all a little different.
For contrast, I flipped half of the triangles to the other side.
I then placed all the triangles out along a piece of hemp twine. When I was happy with their placement, I put a small dot of glue in between the two pieces of paper to close the flag. I glued them close to the tip so that they could still slide along the twine.
I knotted each end of the twine and glued just the knots to a card. For a final touch, I added a Happy Birthday sticker.
I am still in shock of how quickly and easily this came together. It might be one of my new favorite cards to make! Thank you for the inspiration, Honey Bee!
