After returning home from Snap earlier this year in April, I was so inspired by all the new products that were out on the market. I started brainstorming an idea that would put together some of the cool new products I had seen at Snap along with my idea to simplify by creating a multitude of projects with a limited number of core supplies.

12 Months of Banners - Laura's Crafty Life

I want to thank American Crafts for supplying me with the products for this series. This post contains affiliate links. This does not cost you anything extra, but a portion of your purchase will go to support this site and help keep the content free. Please read my full disclosure policy here.

My idea was to use the new We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch Board to create one banner for each month of the year. This way, each month I would have a jump start on my holiday and seasonal decorating.

I tend to change out my seasonal decor around my house once a month or every couple of months and I often add banners to the mix. They are easy to create and are usually not too expensive. The banner punch board was one of the coolest products I saw at Snap.

I don’t always want use my die-cut machine to create banner shapes, and cutting them out by hand using a template can be really time-consuming. The punch board eliminates the hassle and you can create the banner, flag and pennant shapes so easily!



I also wanted to start with a fun, decorative paper pad and try to make all 12 banners out of one paper pad and a few other supplies. I know sometimes I will buy a paper pack because it is so cute, but then don’t really know what to do with it beyond scrapbooking. I will be showing you the versatility of a paper pack and all the fun banners you can make.

To create most banners I will use:

Other items that may be included:

The first banner is going to be for August that I will be sharing with you this weekend. After that, I will be sharing one banner a month. By the end of 12 months, you will have 12 banners you can display in your home using many of the same supplies over and over again. I can’t wait to share the first banner with you tomorrow!


Be sure to pin this post. I will be updating the links below as soon as each banner is created and shared!

  1. Hi Laura! Beautiful banners! I’m wondering if you have tried using the banner board to cut burlap. If so, did it work ok?
