Happy Easter everyone! Easter is coming up this next Sunday and my daughter informed me that we needed to put up our Easter decorations. The thing is that we had already put up our decor which was Easter eggs from the 100 yen store tied up with ribbon. I guess in my mind I think I have more decorations than I have because of this sad feeling I haven when I go to get the decorations out and there are like 2 things. So I designed this banner using these totally cute graphics from Creative Market.
I have really been enjoying printing things off at home and making things on my own. Designing things on the computer is something I could (and do sometimes…) loose track of time doing. I am grateful for how many times this has come in handy when there was a party or a holiday that I needed a little something extra for. It is also hard over here to find good decor over here that doesn’t fall apart after one use.
And the fun thing is I just use a $40 Black Friday sale HP printer to print off the designs. The cardstock I use is a Matte presentation paper from Epson because that is all the cardstock they have at the BX (Base Exchange). I like how rich it makes the ink look. I like to cut as much as I can with a paper cutter. This one I purchases off of Amazon for under $10.
After trimming the sides I just used a pair of scissors to trim the bottom. A cool trick discovered was to take the bottom and use it as a template for the holes on the top. I’m one of those weird people who likes things to be even and this worked like a charm!
I chose a twine for its “earthy” look. I thought it went well with Spring. There are a few ways that you can string the banner. String on top or under. It’s all about what you prefer!
Now if you are wondering how to get this free printable, I would like to invite you to join The Vault. This is a new thing I am starting up. I wasn’t sure if people liked having to go through the shop to get the downloads. We will see if this is the preferred method. What are your thoughts? Do you like going through a shop or would you like to be able to just download?
I hope you enjoy your banner! I designed it in 2 different sizes. The large one that I have printed off would cover an 8 foot space. The smaller banner is the same thing but covers a smaller area. I would love to see how you used it in your home.
