Supplies: 12×12 Paper Pad (366665) – DIY Shop, Large Chipboard Pennants (366878) – DIY Shop, Large Chipboard Two-Point Flags (366879) – DIY Shop, Primio (89423) – Baker's Twine, Gold Doilies (331566) – Studio Calico, Wood Buttons (366611) – DIY Shop

Step 1: Gather your supplies. I used the DIY Shop 12×12 paper pad, a piece of cardstock, large chipboard pennants and two-point flags, wood buttons, gold doilies, and baker's twine.
Step 2: With a craft knife, cut the patterned paper to size, using the chipboard pennants and flags as a template. Punch holes in the pattered paper to match the holes on each piece of chipboard.
Step 3: Adhere the patterned paper to the pennants and flags with a This to That tape runner.
Step 4: Cut your letters with a Silhouette Cameo or by hand. The font I used is called Harbell. Adhere each letter to a flag, alternating pennants and flags.
Step 5: Create paper rosettes by trimming two pieces of 12 inch by 1.5 inch patterned paper strips, folding accordion style, stapling the ends together, and fanning into a circle.
Step 6: Adhere gold doilies and rosettes to two pieces of the banner.
Step 7: Thread two long lengths of baker's twine through the holes on each pennant and flag. I used one whole spool for each color so I had plenty of extra at each end.
