Pennant Birthday Banner Idea - Breakfast at Tiffany's theme party - TUTORIAL - How to - personalized

 I've only made one very simple banner before to use as a photo prop so this was all trial and error. Since it was a Breakfast at Tiffany's theme party I wanted it to have all the extra details. This was SOOOO much fun to make. 

scrapbooking paper
ribbon (banner)
ribbon (extra frills)
card stock
hole punch
hot glue gun
double sided tape (optional)

Picked out complimenting color of scrapbook paper. One with texture, glitter and raised velvet design

Made a template on card stock and traced on the back of the scrap booking paper

Arranged the pattern (that I changed several times)

I wanted the circles large enough to fit the triangle but not go over. I tried tracing a can, ribbon, glass, bowl (was too large) and finally found a beer mug that worked perfectly. This was my hubby's idea of contributing to the craft and to celebrate he should fill that beer mug. :)

Attached the circles with hot glue and used a hole punch for the ribbon holes. Don't make the holes close to the edge or it might not be able to hold the weight and rip. 

 I printed and cut out letters. I know there is an easier process but I used a textured pearlized paper that ink would not print on. Too late to run to the craft store. If you use plain card stock you could eliminate this step by printing and then just cut the circle with the letter on it.

Set out my example. HIGHLY recommend because I changed the pattern a few more times.

Attached letters with double sided tape

Ready to string on ribbon. I made it extra long not knowing how low it was going to hang or where. 

Cut ribbon to add extra frills to the banner :)

Tied and done! Love how it turned out!

So glad I left the ends so long. See the lower banner!? It needed the longer ribbon to hang it below the happy birthday. Whew!

It was a first birthday so the party started in the late morning. I picked up donut holes that morning. Colored cream cheese icing teal and dipped.  Filled a bowl with sugar to hold them in place. (I started with rice but didn't like how it looked.

Tags on the donuts on a stick and the truffles below were designed from my ETSY shop. Photo and Happy 1st Birthday tags.
