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.

- 12×12 Chipboard or Cardboard – 2 Sheets
Step 1: Adhere Core’dinations 12×24 Glitter paper to chipboard or cardboard sheets to form a sturdy backing. You can even use cereal boxes if you like. Just be sure to place them right next to each other to form a solid backing. A little extra tape along the seams will make everything sturdy.

Cut design using sheets of the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Nostalic Collection. My design created a 12×24 piece so I used two sheets of the same color.
