Jake's Graduation Banner

This is my son's Graduation banner that I made for his party. The school's colours are red, black and white. I used the cart Birthday Bash for the pennant shapes and the letters. This cart has a bunch of great pennant shapes and shadows to use...it came together in a snap! I think it took less than an hour all together. I'll just add copious amounts of helium balloons and you get an instant party! Thanks for looking...Lee-Ann :)
**all the starred products were purchased at DAT'S, my LSS.**
Recipe:
  • Recollections-black, white, red and grey cardstock
  • Silver Stickles*
  • White Signo Gel pen*
  • Cuttlebug embossing folders-Seeing Spots and Polka dots*
  • Cricut carts-George(stars on rosettes, sayings), Wrap it Up(grad caps), Birthday Bash(font and pennants)
  • Tim Holtz large Rosette die*
  • EK Success border punch(ribbon ends on rosettes)*

Awesome Banner for a special occasion. I have made the one banner, so I think I am ready to try more. I love that you added the curly ribobn and tulle on the ends.

Stay Creative,
