Easy Happy Birthday Pennant Banner!

 Make a super simple Pennant Banner!
Perfect for birthday's or other parties!
 It's easy with
12 by 12 sheets of scrapbook paper
rotary cutter, ruler and cutting mat
 Mark in 4 inches from the corner on one side.
 Line up the ruler at the 4" mark and lay it to the corner nearly across from it.

Just like this:
 Hold that ruler tight and cut that line.
 I double up to make it faster.
 Now...flip the paper around.
Mark at 4 inches in.
lay the ruler across from the 4" mark to the corner.
Cut that line.
 Now we've taken a SQUARE paper and turned it into a PARALLELOGRAM.
Easy right!??
 Next.
Run the ruler across the diagonal from corner to corner.
You can see how it will make the perfect isosceles triangle.
 Cut along that line.
Now you have perfectly shaped,
symmetrical pennants!
Next I just freehand cut some letters with scissors.
You could have an electronic cutter do it for you...or write it on with markers!

Here's my next trick.
Duck Tape!
Get some pretty tape...
 Cut a square.
 Place half on the pennant front.
Insert the twine.
Fold over and tape down the tape to the other side of the pennant.
 Like this:
 Here's the easiest way to make the banner without tangling twine or running out of space!
 Side by side...tape the top...lift and place pennant right on top of the last.
Put the next one in place...tape and repeat!
 Hang them up for the special day!
We had a huge backyard barbecue and I didn't get the camera out to take any pictures after this.
But it was fun...and that table wasn't enough room for all the food!
