It's A Banner Month: Letter R

Here is my second letter in my "DREAM" banner. These banners, or pennants, are fun and easy to make. You can choose any word that has meaning to you and you can use up those scraps of paper and images that you have been saving. I decided to do my letters in glitter to make them pop out a little more from my background. You could use a less busy background for a letter that would stand out even more. I hope you will try one of these banners. I think you will really enjoy making one, and seeing it on display in your space. The easiest way to make the banner shape is to cut a rectangle in the size that you would like, fold it lengthwise. From a top corner draw a straight line to the bottom middle. Do the same thing from the other top corner, and you have a pennant pattern! This one is 6 inches across the top, and about 7 and a half down the sides. One more thing, be sure to put a back on your pennant to add strength to it before you cut holes in the top to run the ribbon through.

I so admire anyone who can do collage well! I've been trying but still need more practice. Yours is just gorgeous! I like the old-fashioned lace at the top, too.
