Do you ever have scraps of paper leftover that you can't throw away? Well this is such a fun craft to use scraps or your favorite papers and colors. I created this fun party banner backdrop for food table or for a creative backdrop to photographs with party guests.

To start with, you will want to collect all your papers you want to use. I used the front and back sides to switch it up with some of the papers. I cut each strip to 1/2 inch by 4 inches. Then I folded the paper in half to get it ready to create the banner edge.

For the edge, I pinched the ends together for each piece and cut a small triangle off the end, then unpinched the paper. I used the dot adhesive roller to wrap it around baker's twine strands. I made different lengths for each string.

You can do a few different things to hang it. I used Whittles clothespins to hang it to baker's twine and draped it. You can also tape up each one and use the clothespins to dangle at the bottom to pull the string straight too. There are a couple of fun options for you to try out. Have fun!
