Are you looking for a fun, patriotic, banner for your Fourth of July Celebrations? Why not this simple half circle banner? With the new Core Basics Patterned papers, Tim Holtz Metallic Kraft Core and a bit of string you will be flying your banner in no time.
Patriotic Banner Supplies:
- Core Basics Patterned Papers – Dark Blue Stripe, Dark Blue Small Dot, Red Plaid, Red Flower
- Tim Holtz Metallic Kraft Core Silver
- Polka Dot Pops – White Pearl with White Polkadot
- Circle Cutter, Circle Template, or Electronic Cutting device
- Star punch, electronic cutter, or star die
Step 1: Cut Patterned papers into circle shapes. I chose to alternate the pattern by doing some large red and some large blue. The largest circles were cut to 6 inches. The white Polka Dot Pops to 4 inches and the inside circles to 3 inches. I cut enough circles to make 8 completed pennants. (four of each color and eight of the white).
Step 4: Fold each set of circles in half and attach one of the Tim Holtz Metallic Kraft Core stars on each half.
Step 5: Place twine through the folded circles and adhere the circle closed. Be sure to add plenty of adhesive as you don’t want your banner to unfold or your layers to peel back.
Hi there! Suzanna here with a seasonal Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions layout to share with you using one of the individual embossed papers focusing on the American No. 17 sheet. It’s perfect for the 4th of July.
Embossing Folder – Tim Holtz
Cut File – 3d Banner, Design ID #53911
Silhouette Cameo: Font – Independence
Twine – The Twinery
Wood Veneer – Freckled Fawn, Studio Calico
Dies – Lifestyle Craft, Die-Versions
I selectively sanded the word that corresponded with my theme. I also happen to have the Tim Holtz embossing folder that matches this pre-embossed cardstock and was able to fussy cut the 4 in a slightly bigger size. It worked out perfectly!
This entire layout was created using all Kraft Core products! I love the vintage feel it gives to the layout.
Another fun technique that is unique to Core’dinations cardstock is the ability to run it through your label maker for some fun banners. By sanding the raised print, like I did on the little red flag to reveal the colored core underneath, you can really see the letters!
Here at Core’dinations we want to wish everyone a very Happy and Safe 4th of July! A huge thanks to everyone that makes our freedom here in the States possible.
