DIY: Bridal Shower Banner

BridalShowerBanner-Header

This weekend my sister, Alyssa, hosted an adorable bridal shower for one of her best friends. Since Alyssa is in her busy season at work (tax time!), I offered to help with some of the party preparation. One of the decorations I made was a banner featuring the bride’s wedding hashtag, #CheersToTheFears. You can find generic bride-to-be versions online but I wanted it to be customized so I DIYed it!

For this project you will need scrapbook paper, two colors of 8.5 x 11 paper, scissors, ruler, glitter, glue, single hole punch and ribbon. The type, size and how much paper you buy is really up to you and your project. I wanted to play off of the invitation so I chose to use the same colors and patterns.

Step 1:

 I started by measuring to the center of each piece of paper and then drawing a straight line up to each corner. Once you have your shape drawn, cut it out.

Step 5 & 6:

Trace around the letters with glue. Next, sprinkle glitter onto the glue. Wait a minute or so to let the glue dry and then shake the glitter off. The glue will still not be fully dry so be sure to not let your triangles touch.

Step 7 & 8:

Punch holes in both of the top corners of the triangles and tie them together with ribbon.
