Maybe it’s just me, but my decorating for the holidays (any and all of them!) or a shower, or a birthday party, or wedding isn’t complete until I have created a banner. They are easy to create and add a pop of color to any occasion. Banners aren’t just for special occasions, however; they are perfect as home décor as well. I have created banners for my daughter’s bedroom and playroom as well as for my craft room. I love how fun and whimsical they are, and once you make one, you just might find they end up in every room of your house!
Of course, as a paper crafter I have an abundance of patterned paper and letter stickers at my disposal to make banners from, but the ideas that I am going to share with you today take banners to a whole new level! Don’t fret though as most of the items that these DIY banners are made with are probably supplies you already have around the house: paper bags, doilies, coffee filters, envelopes and cupcake liners just to name a few. It’s amazing what supplies you can come up with when you “shop” your house instead of the craft store.

Go to the Office: Upcycle Office Materials for these Banner Ideas
Once you have raided your kitchen it’s time to go look in your home office or desk drawer for banner making supplies. You just might find what you need to make an envelope banner along with these other fun office-supply inspired banners.
Do you have a banner hanging in your house? What does it look like?
I started scrapping in 2006 and was quickly addicted!I was an avid scrapper until late summer of 2010 when we started our adoption journey, at that point I was overwhelmed with paperwork (and emotions!) and I had to put something on the back burner in my life but I knew I would eventually come back to it.
We welcomed our daughter home from China in December of 2011 and a few months later I found my groove again and pulled out all of those supplies that had been tucked away.
I started out scrapping again doing traditional layouts, but at the beginning of this year I jumped into Project Life and I love it!
When I’m not scrapping I am usually spending time with our daughters which means library time, going on walks, thrifting (they love it as much as I do!) or watching Kung Fu Panda for the millionth time.I also have an Etsy shop Panda Eight Designs where I sell scrapbooking flair that I design.
