This is a simple and easy to make DIY banner using paper board.
Card board / kraft board / any paper board
Paints / colour paper
Adhesive / fevicol
1. Cut the paper board into equal sized pieces, with rectangular slits on top.
To make the slits, fold an inch of the paper board at the top. Make two slits on the fold, 1 cm apart. Make a cut, joining the slits to cut away the board between the slits. Open the fold, and you have a small rectangular slit.
2. Paint the sheets with plain water colours / fabric paints. A coloured background with simple shapes painted on top works well.
Or, stick coloured art paper or hand made paper with pretty patterns.
3. Paint alphabets on the coloured boards, one alphabet on every board. Words like HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CELEBRATIONS or the birthday child’s name will look good on the banner.
Alphabets can also be traced on to coloured art paper, and cut out to be stuck on the boards.
4. Take a good quality satin ribbon. Thread it through the slits on the boards. Apply adhesive or fevicol on the boards, and stick the satin ribbon to the boards.
The banner is all set now to be hung or stuck on your wall.
