Reversible November Thanksgiving Banner. Use the We R Memory Keepers banner punch board and Pebbles, Inc. paper to create a fun thankful banner.
Today I am sharing how to make a Thanksgiving banner for my ‘12 Months of Banners‘ series. This one is extra special because it is reversible. The new Pebbles, Inc. Harvest double-sided cardstock is so amazing!

Create Banner Pieces
To start with you will cut crest shape banner pieces with your Harvest double-sided cardstock. Cut the paper into a 4″ strip using a paper trimmer. I chose a different pattern paper for each banner shape for a total of 8 crests.
I then placed the bottom edge of the cardstock into the banner punch board at the top. You will want to line up the sides of your paper with the vertical white lines at the number 4 on each side. Align the bottom edge of the paper on the blue horizontal line at the 7.5 mark.
Use the blade to cut your paper first from the left side of the guide.
Then use the blade to cut from the right side of the guide.
Remove your paper and trim the overall crest banner piece to 6″ long. Punch a hole in either side of the top of your banner using your punchboard hole punch.
Cut out Thankful Letters
Using your Cricut Explore cut out the letters ‘THANKFUL’ on dark brown cardstock.
Then, you will want to cut out eight leaves. For the size leaves, I cut I was able to cut four leaves per 12″ x 12″ piece of cardstock. I cut four leaves each from an off-white color and a really light brown colored cardstock.

Assemble The Banner
Next, I attached each letter to one of the leaves using small adhesive squares. For each letter, I alternated the lighter and darker leaves.
Last, I attached each leaf to the patterned cardstock using a larger adhesive square. I used a brown ribbon to attach the banner pieces together. Because I wanted the majority of the ribbon on the backside of the banner shapes, I started by stringing the ribbon down through the left hole and up through the right hole until I had all the banner shapes attached.
Hang your banner and enjoy it!
The fun thing about this banner is you can reverse it to have a banner but without any words. I think the backside of this banner would look adorable in a kitchen.
