Hi there. It’s Amy from The Happy Scraps here today and I’m excited to be sharing this Easy Weekend Fun Activity Banner with you. We recently moved into a new home and have been spending our weekends working on things in and around the house, getting all kinds of things done that have needed to be done since moving. Since we haven’t done many fun things on the weekends yet this year, and since school just got out, I decided I wanted to make this easy weekend fun activity banner. I’m looking forward to the weekends this summer and getting out and spending time together as a family.
I pulled out the 6 x 6 paper pad from the Jen Hadfield Everyday collection and selected some bright and fun patterned papers that look like summer to me. I cut them each in half so I had two pieces about 3″ x 6″.
Using the Banner Punch Board and one piece of each patterned paper, I cut the flag shaped banner.
Then I trimmed the top off, making them the length that I wanted. I’ve found that if I cut the top off after I’ve cut the triangle part out of the bottom, I end up with the exact size of banner piece that I want.
Then I cut the triangle banner pieces. Once I had all the pieces cut, I punched out the holes in the top to lace the banner together with.
Here are all the banner pieces.
I placed all the pieces on the table, figuring out the order I wanted them to hang.
Using a large pair of scissors, I cut my paper straws into six pieces each.
With a large needle, I threaded my baker’s twine into it. Then I put three straw pieces on my needle and pushed them down on the string. Then I added a banner piece.
I put three straw pieces between each banner piece.
Once I had the banner strung together, I punched out some hexagon shapes and wrote our activities on them.
Using some dimensional adhesive squares, I mounted them onto the banner pieces.
I’m so excited about these weekend activities I’ve planned to do with my family and I’m also excited that it looks so cute to hang up too!
Here it is, hanging from my self.
Doesn’t it just go perfectly with my Hello Summer board?
What fun plans do you have for the summer?
