Chevron Banner

I started making this banner because I felt like the backdrop for my pictures needed a little flair. As I was making it, I thought, why not make every letter of the alphabet, and then whenever I want to spell something else, it’s all right there.

And voila! I give to you possibly the cutest chevron banner in existence, and also the easiest one to make.

Supplies:

  • Paper in two different colors
    • I used cardstock. It only took 2 sheets
  • Glue
  • Tape
  • Twine, Ribbon, or yarn
  • Cricut and cricut accessories

How to:

Step 1: Head on over to Design Space.

Step 2: Select the letter and numbers you need for your sign and move them to the top of the space. Drag and select all other letters and numbers and delete. Duplicate any letters that you have more than one of

Step 4: Glue the pieces together. Line the bottom piece up to the fold on the top. Tip: Glue the top piece, so you don’t have to worry about seeing glue on the bottom piece.

Step 5: Lay the yarn against the inner part of the fold and tape the fold. Continue until all pieces are taped onto the yarn.

Add Twine

Step 6: Cut your string and tie a slip knot on each end.

The cool thing about Design Space is you can make this as large or as small as you want! Make it big for your bedroom or small for your cubicle.
