10 fun ways to use banners on your projects

Banners are a fun way to spruce up your projects. They are often used in celebrations/parties and evoke happy feelings so they add that touch of joy to your projects too. :) Here are 10 fun ways you can use banners on your projects...

Food confession
1. Use it with a group of party critters to really drive in the happy factor. 

Ahhh..you know how I love breakfast food. Even though I wasn't technically at a party, believe me there was a party in my mouth and tummy...and those October Afternoon party critters totally exemplify how I was feeling. *winks*

I "made" the banner by cutting canvas fabric pennants, using brads to secure them and doodling the banner ends with a pen.

The one where we chased chickens

2. Make it an extension to your photos.

Since outdoor banners are typically tied around a tree, I used the banner to tie the 2 photos of the Gangster Gang (aka niece + nephews) standing at a tree as a fun design element.

Guess who's afraid of Aunt E?

3. Make it a part of the design element on your photo mat.

Embellish your photo mat with a banner to document a fun moment in life. I added more texture by incorporating some thread and applying glitter glue on one of the pennants.

4. A banner and a monkey are a great combo.

Especially since it's totally possible to spot a wild monkey when we are outdoors....just not one with googly eyes...*LOL*

By the sea

5. Use banners with clouds.

Clouds and banner are a great way to complement outdoor photos. Like the ones here by the sea.

This is real life
6. Make your own banner.

Why not create your own banner with stuff you have in your stash? Like this fun feather banner. 

The double page birthday spread

7. Use them to unify a double-pager.

Here the chipboard banners work with the banner in the photo to create continuity between the two pagers. And of course, we were having an actual birthday party! :)

An obsession with frames

8. Try a fun photo banner.

This is a great way to incorporate smaller photos.

9. Go overboard with your banners.

Why not try multiple banners across a double-page spread? And embellish them with twine and bling while you're at it! :)

One Saturday afternoon
10. A word banner is always a good idea.

Especially if they come in pre-made sticker form...just peel off the backing and stick it on!

There you have it....10 fun ways to use banners on your projects. Do you like to use banners on your projects?
