Cheap Scrapbook Paper Pennant
What I came up with cost me a whopping $1.50 because I already had the ribbon and hole punch. If you already have the scrapbook paper, then it would be free- my favorite price!
All you need for this pennant is scrapbook paper, scissors, cardstock or poster board to make a template, a hole punch and ribbon. I had 5 large sheets of scrapbook paper and I got 3 triangles from each sheet.
I made my template by folding a piece of cardstock in half width wise. I used a straight edge to draw a line on the cardstock to make half a triangle. (The folded edge will be the middle of the triangle.) Before cutting, I unfolded the paper, visualizing where the other half of the triangle would be. I eyeballed it to make sure that it was going to be the right width to allow me to make 2 triangles side by side on the scrapbooking paper. Then I folded the cardstock back and cut down the line through both halves of the paper to make my triangle.
I can't wait to make these for Benjamin's first birthday! What adorable, cheap decorations!
