Today I’m going all Mr. Rogers, because it’s an absolutely beautiful day in my neighborhood. The skies are blue, the sun is shining, and the birds are chirping. So, I have to ask…
Won’t you be my neighbor? 🙂
Seriously though, it’s a gorgeous day that just makes your step a little lighter, so I finished a project that puts a smile on my face.
I said last week that I’d be making some projects with the antique seed packet printables, and I finished the first one yesterday.
It’s a pennant banner blooming with flowers that you can whip one up in no time!
All my peony and iris blooms are gone now, and I’m waiting for other flowers to start blooming that I can put in the apothecary bottles on my repurposed trunk tray shelf, so this little pennant banner fills in the empty space and has flowers on it, so it’s perfect.
How to Make a Seed Packet Pennant Banner
Supplies (click on items with* to find these supplies on Amazon)
~ Antique Seed Packet Prints (there are 8 free printables to choose from HERE)
*circle punch (I used a 1/8″ punch)
~ cotton, jute or *hemp twine (I used hemp twine)
- Print the seed packet images at 3-1/2″ x 5″ size (this is a little larger than wallet size).
- Position chipboard pennant on seed pack images and trace around it on each one.
- Cut out along traced line, but don’t worry about cutting the “v” part at the bottom yet.
- Mix some plain school glue with a little water.
- Use a paintbrush to cover one side of the chipboard pennant.
- Turn the pennant over and use sharp tip scissors to trim excess paper from the sides and the “v” at the bottom.
- Punch holes in sides of pennants and string them on twine.
Hang up it & enjoy!
If you make one of these seed packet pennant banners, I’d love to hear about it!
