Thankful Banner

This Thankful Banner will help keep the feeling of 'Fall' this Thanksgiving!

What you'll need:
-Scrapbook Paper (Your choice)
Two - 8.5 x 11 (Printer size) (Mine is cream)
Two - 12 x 12 (Mine is Brown)
Four - 12 x 12 (Mine is leaf pattern)
-Scissors or Paper Cutter
-Hole Punch
-Fall Leaves (Real or Fake)

The how to:

-Place your 8.5 x 11 Scrapbook paper in your printer and print out each letter.
Then cut into squares.

-Glue Letters onto second pattern paper and cut, leaving a 1/4 inch border around each letter.

-Glue each letter onto third pattern paper and cut, leaving at least a 1-2 inch. border.

-Once all backgrounds are cut out and glued together, trace each letter with a glue bottle
and fill in the center.

-Sprinkle glitter over glue and set aside to dry.

-Once letters are dry, punch holes in the top corners of each letter then punch holes about 1/4 inch. below the stem on each leaf.
(Leaves are coated with Mod Podge)

-Tie the corners and leafs together with Raffia.

-Once all the letters are tied together make loops for the ends and hang it up!

Sorry I don't know which font it was. I have thousands of fonts. Next Time I will remember to make a note in the instructions what font I used. Search through yours and find one you like.
