How to Make a Fall Banner

Hello, We R fans, Laura here today showing you how to create a pretty fall banner with two of my favorite tools – the banner punch board and the mini alphabet punch board. The banner punch board makes it so easy to create banners quickly and easily.

Start by trimming your fall themed papers to 4 inches by 6 inches. You will need six different patterns of paper.

Use the banner punch board to create a flag shaped banner. I like to line up the corners of my paper at the cutting groove. I waste the least amount of paper this way and then each banner piece is the same size.

Use the banner punch board to punch holes in the corner of each banner piece.

Next, I used the mini alphabet punch board to spell out the word “FALL” from orange textured cardstock. Trim the paper so it is 1.5” x 2.5” to start. Use the instructions for the mini alphabet punch board to guide you in how to punch and cut the letters.

Since the letters are small, I decided to add a brown rosette behind each one. Use a piece of textured brown cardstock and the trim & score board to score your paper every half inch.

Use the rosette punch to create a decorative edge on the paper. One I had the entire 12” x 12” paper punched along one edge, I trimmed the paper, so it was only 2” wide by 12” long.

Fold the paper accordion style and then use hot glue to attach the ends of the rosette together. Use hot glue to secure the middle of the rosette so it stays together. I attached the letters to the rosettes using hot glue, and then attached the whole thing to my banner pieces using hot glue, as well.

I added some pretty fall ephemera to the two end banner pieces and the letters. I attached all the banner pieces together using brown and white baker’s twine. Tie each piece together using a small bow.

I love the way this banner turned out. I will be able to leave it up from September through November and it is the perfect way to start my holiday decorating this year.

The rosette helps to make the letters stand out while also providing a fun detail to the banner pieces.

Adding the ephemera to both the letters and the end pieces ties the whole banner together to create a beautiful display piece for fall.
