4th of July Banner

It is my turn again on the CutCardStock Blog! I have a quick and easy 4th of July Banner tutorial to share.
I used Silver Glitter Cardstock, Curious Metallic Cardstock, and Core'dinations Patterned Kraft Cardstock to create this little patriotic banner. The pennants are so simple to make that you can spell out a longer word quickly and easily. Or, mix up the colors and prints to create a banner for a different celebration.
Each layer is just one, simple item, but together, the layers pack a big punch!
The shimmer from the glitter cardstock star and the metallic papers, make this a perfect 4th of July decoration.
Tiny clothes pins and some twine finish off the banner.
The banner stretches out to approximately 24" wide and is 4 1/2" tall.

For the step-by-step tutorial, please see the Snapguide below.
