We even used yellow thread to coordinate with our blue chevron ribbon! I love the way they turned out! When they were finished being sewn, we folded them up flat so they wouldn't get bent before the shower.
The banners were hung in front of the food
and gift tables
and on some of the walls around the room that just needed some color.
Mini Triangle Banner
We also used the scrap pieces from the 12 x 12 paper to create a mini banner with little triangles. I'm a big fan of trying to use up every inch of my scrapbook paper!
Paper Strip Banner
Next, we took the extra full sheets of scrapbook paper and cut them into small strips in a pattern alternating between yellow, blue, and green.
Just like the first banner, we ran those strips through the sewing machine.
We hung these banners in various places like on the windows
that were used to decorate the gift table.
Felt Bow & Bow Tie Banner
My favorite banners were the ones made from felt bows and bow ties. We created these by following this tutorial
and modifying it to create both bows and bow ties.
After creating the bows and bow ties, we hot glued them onto twine.
We used these as table runners on the gift tables and on the drink table
The last type of banner we created was a simple one that was made using clothespins, ribbon and twine. We used yellow and blue ribbon to make blue and yellow bows which we hot glued onto clothespins. Next, we clipped the pins directly onto the long piece of twine and hung it up over the wish card table
