O Canada!

Last night was my last class until the fall. With Canada Day just around the corner, I planned the class around creating a pennant banner.


These pennants are 4" wide by 6" long, and you can cut 10 out of 1 12 x 12 cardstock.

We are so blessed to live in a free and prosperous country. I love Canada and thought it would be a good idea to create a patriotic banner for Canada Day. The students that took the class loved the pennant banner as well.

Here is a close up view of the banner in 2 sections. You can click on the photo to view it larger.




You can make all sorts of pennant banners - birthday, congrats, birth, anniversary, shower, graduation, and more. The pennants can be any size you wish. Try it out and see what your imagination creates. And to all the Canadian readers, have a great Canada Day on July 1st!

Here is the template that I created for my class in how to cut out the 10 pennants from a 12 x 12. Remember, if you are changing the size of your pennants, you will need to come up with your own measurements and template.(You may have to click on it to view it larger)
