Happy Monday! I’m thrilled to be back from Spring Break and super energized because today is our first Monday DIY tutorial – yay!!! You might remember me mentioning that from now on, you will find a DIY here on Something Turquoise every Monday and Friday! Making these projects is my favorite thing to do, it’s actually all I want to do, so I hired a few people to help me do all the other stuff so I can focus on making things. Like today’s, Mini-Banner Printable! I’m sharing all the letters, numbers and symbols you’ll need to make an adorable mini-banner for pretty much anything. From a cake topper to a greeting card, this free printable project is super cheap with a side of extra cute. Just in case you haven’t seen them, I do have a few other free printable banners you might love!

SUPPLIES:

  • Home printer
  • 8.5″ x 11″ Cardstock
  • Glue Dots (or your favorite adhesive)
  • Scissors
  • Twine or skinny ribbon
  • Paper trimmer that “scores” or scoring board (optional)

Most Fiskars paper trimmers either come with, or have the ability to add a “blade” that will perfectly score your paper – which means it makes the perfect folding line. You can also use a scoring board, or just fold the paper – your choice!

Download + Print + Score + Cut

This adorable mini-banner is SUPER easy to make! First, download my design at the bottom of the post and save it to your computer. Then print it onto your favorite color of 8.5″ x 11″ cardstock.

Using a scoring board or a paper trimmer with a scoring blade, score across the top of each banner line where the rectangle changes to a trapezoid. Then follow the outline to cut out each banner letter you need.

Create Your Banner

Add a Glue Dot to the top flap of each letter and adhere over a piece of twine or skinny ribbon. Try to keep the twine flat as you are working so the letters don’t get twisted up on you. I tied the ends to toothpicks to create the staggered cake topper… or “cake message” I guess it a better term for it!
