First, start by trimming a piece of white textured cardstock four inches wide. Using the banner punch board, cut a flag shape on one end of the banner. Trim the overall banner length to seven inches long. You will need four of these banner shapes.
Cut a piece of plain white cardstock four inches wide. Again, using the banner punch board create a flag shape on one end of the banner. Trim the overall banner length to five inches long. You will again need four of these.
Starting at the bottom of your five-inch banner shape, begin layering rows of fringe tape to cover the banner shape. Trim the excess with scissors.
Once you reach the top, trim the excess fringe from the bottom of the banner.
Punch holes in the top of the banner shape. Fluff the fringe a little before proceeding to the next step. I made two banner shapes with Blossom fringe and two with Ocean fringe.
Next, using the alphabet punch board and the 3 x 5 in basics paper pad, cut out the word BABY, alternating pink and blue papers.
Attach the letters to the banner using adhesive foam squares.
Lastly, start stringing your banner together. Use a piece of ribbon and a piece of coordinating twine and tie the banner pieces together using a double knot. Alternate pink and blue ribbons. On the ends, simply tie a knot at either end.
This banner would be wonderful for a gender reveal party since it is both pink and blue. However, the general design of the banner could be easily altered with all of the options for colors of fringe tape to suit any party decor or occasion.
