My cousin, Liz, is having her first baby this upcoming May! YAY! I am so excited to be taking her maternity photos on Easter!!! I decided I wanted to hand make one of the props we can use in both her maternity photo session, as well as her newborn photo session I will be doing! I opted for a cute, fun paper pennant banner!
Their son's name is Frank, but they will be calling him Gus!
How cute is that for a baby name?! Baby Gus!
I fell in love with this lettering! I decided it would be perfect to use to outline the letters!
So this process was super simple! I did some quick, easy measurements to decide how big I wanted to make the pennant. I used the block letters as a guide, to see how much room I would be left with. I didn't want to make the pennants HUGE, but big enough.
This paper cutter is affordable and works wonders!
This is my sample pennant I made as a guide. I lined it up with the scrapbook paper and then a quick, three cuts later: BAM! You've got yourself a paper pennant!
All I needed was a paper clip! Haha!
I really loved the way these patterns worked with one another. I stood in Micheal's for about 2 seconds before they both just jumped out at me!
The outlining was super easy, and my one recommendation with this is that you buy yourself a good, reliable pair of crafting scissors! You definitely get better results!
After that, I used my mini hot glue gun to attach the pennants to the ribbon.
Funny thing is, I realized I didn't have anywhere left in the apartment really with a lot of empty wall space. When I went to take these pictures, it was too late to take them outside and I had to clear room behind Adam's desk to just hang these to show you how they came out! Good thing I've done a great job at keeping the walls decorated!
