Three sheets of cardstock (two 8 ½” x 11” plus one other 8 ½” x 11” sheet in an accent color)
Paper cutter or scissors or craft knife
Ribbon or raffia
Fold a piece of cardstock lengthwise to make a folded 4 ¼” x 11” card. Cut the spine of the fold off at ¼” to make two 4” x 11” pieces and one 11” x ¼” folded strip. The folded strip will become the “stick” upon which you will hang the pennants. Cut one more 4” x 11” panel from the second sheet of cardstock
Fold each of the three 4” x 11”panels in half to make 3 folded cards measuring 4” x 5 ½”
Mark the front of the open end of each folded card at 2”. Cut from the folded side down to the mark on both sides to make three folded triangle cards (as shown).
From the accent sheet, cut three triangles the same size as the folded triangle cards. Glue the accent pieces to the inside back of each triangle card.
Put glue along the entire length of the “stick” and attach the three pennants starting with the left one then the right one and finishing with the middle one. NOTE: The open side of the “stick” should be at the bottom.
Decorate the pennants any way you wish. String a length of ribbon or raffia inside the open end of the “stick” and tie the two ends together to hang your banner. Enjoy!
