DIY: Fringe Banners

A quick how-to for one of my favorite party decor ideas… FRINGE! All you need is a rotary blade and any paper or supplies for the banners.
I used plastic table cloths for Avery’s Birthday party, mixed in with some gold tissue paper.

Cut to desired height and make sure you fold it in half, keep the fold at the top.
Cut it to the desired height then use a cutting mat to know how far you are spacing the fringe. (Loving my new cutting mat from American Crafts!)
I spaced out my fringe to about 1/4″ and left about 1/2″ from the top.

If you make one out of tissue paper follow the steps above then to lengthen the banner I sew all the pieces together along the top.

Another one of my glitter word banners. For those of you who emailed me requesting one–I will email you next week after my trip!!! I apologize if that is too late and I missed your party! xo

I must be having party withdrawls from the back-to-back birthdays so I added a little festive Be Nice banner. Seriously, maybe my kids are bored with it being summer and school is out but my two oldest girlies have been really quick to hit or not share. This was the appropriate saying for the occasion.

Actually a nice reminder to all of us. ; )

    I’ll be trying that soon! Thanks for the tutorial.

    Love your fringe banners! They added so much to the birthday pictures you posted, so than you for the tutorial. On the sisters fighting thing, I totally know what you’re dealing with. My youngest daughter was sent to her room for being a ninja and kicking her sister in the face this weekend. I heard her crying saying how she wants a new family and never wants to come back to this one. I had to resist telling her how I doubt any other family would want a sister heaad kicking ninja any more than we do. LOL
