How to Make an Easy Party Banner – Tutorial


This Tutorial includes products provided for review by Hot Off the Press –

For this cute banner, I used the Grapefruit Collection and the Build a Banner Template from Hot Off the Press. I can see myself using this template a lot! There are so many banner sizes and styles on this one template, and it’s very straightforward and easy to use.

What you’ll need:

  • Build a Banner Template
  • Patterned paper
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Optional: sewing machine
  • Glue
  • String or ribbon
  • Optional: inks and distressing tool


1. Trace your desired template onto your patterned paper. I only used about 4 sheets of paper for this entire banner! I traced and cut out 10 medium triangle banners and 10 small triangle banners.


2. Cut out all your banners


3. I inked all my larger sized banners with Jumbo Java chalk ink.


4. For the smaller banners, I wanted them to look distressed so I ran my distressing tool along all the edges.


5. Next I got out my sewing machine and I sewed a small size banner onto a larger sized one. I simply LOVE to incorporate sewing into my paper crafts. I love the look and also how easy it is!


6. Once each large banner had a small one sewed onto it, I sewed each banner together in a strip. I left about an inch between each, and enough thread on either end to make a loop (so it can be hung afterwards).
