Friday Craft Day: Canada Day Banner

Happy Canada Day everyone!

Here's a quick banner I made to give our humble Caribbean rental a little Canadian flair.


Similar in style to my St. Patrick's Day banner, this simple banner took me about half an hour to put together using only a handful of items I had around the house. 


How to make your own:

Each scallop was created by tracing a small plate on white paper, cutting out, then folding each one in half. After cutting the shapes I needed out of red cardstock and a few book pages to create each scallop shaped flag, I glued them to the front side of my white half circles & added a button to each.


Next I attached all the little flags to a string by folding each circle in half around the string and then glueing the front and the back of the circles together.

Simple, cute and oh so Canadian, eh!?

I hope everyone has an awesome long weekend and
for those of you gearing up for the 4th, happy July to you too!!

:)

  14. I saw this the week after Canada Day last year, and filed it away for this Canada Day. Little did I know that we would move from Ottawa to India and be missing home especially this weekend. My lils and I just made it, and brought a little piece of home to our home far away. :)
