Make a Party Banner with Glue Dots

Party Banner Tutorial
Are you planning a birthday party soon (like me)? Or maybe a special event in the summer? Then this party banner is just for you. 

Glue Dots®: Mini, Memory Book
Our Craft Lounge: Sparkly Fluff (Rockin Pink, Brown Sugar) and Crafty Sparkles (Blue-Berry)
pre-made paper pennants (I found a 5-pack at the Dollar Tree)
cardstock (brown, green)
hole punches
craft knife

Step 1. Make letters. Use a pencil to draw the outline of each letter onto brown cardstock, then cut with scissors and a craft knife. Adhere a letter to each pennant with Memory Book Glue Dots®.

Step 2. Create a border. Make a template for the border design on cardboard and cut out. Use the template to trace the border onto green cardstock. Punch out circles with a hole punch as shown in the photo before using Memory Book Glue Dots® to attach the border to the pennants.

Step 3. Add Sparkle. Place Memory Book Glue Dots® all over each pennant, sprinkle the Rockin Pink and Brown Sugar Sparkly Fluff onto the adhesive and shake off excess. Add Mini Glue Dots in the empty spaces, sprinkle Blue-Berry Crafty Sprinkles over top and remove excess. (Note: A paint brush is useful in removing extra sparkles.)

Step 4. Connect the pennants. Punch two holes in the top corners of each pennant. Connect each piece with ribbon, making two knots and a bow.

Now you have a party banner that's perfect for the summer, birthdays or any fun occasion!
