For this months free printable banner design, I wanted to spice things up a bit and add a little something to it… so obviously glitter was the answer. Using my favorite super thick, double stick tape adding glitter to this DIY Best Day Ever Banner is literally a piece of cake. Print, tape, glitter, hang – that’s all there is to it… and there are SO many different color options. Below I’m sharing the printables for the entire alphabet, a banner that reads “best day ever” and one that says “mrs” – choose your fav and get crafty!
8.5″ x 11″ cardstock

Print + Cut
There are only a few quick and easy steps for this project:

Print them onto the 8.5″ x 11″ cardstock, photo paper or chipboard of your choice
Cut along the lines provided
Hole Punch At The Corners
Double Stick Tape
Add double stick tape to the bottom of each banner flag. This tape from Thermoweb is my absolute favorite because it’s super sticky and really holds onto the glitter so you won’t loose the sparkles!
Crafters Tip // When I use this thick, sticky double stick tape, I like to use my Fiskars Non-stick scissors. Like the name, nothing sticks to them – including this tape!
Pour the glitter over the double stick tape and then press into the tape. Brush off excess glitter with a paint brush and then save the left over glitter. String the banner flags onto ribbon and you’re golden!
Oh The Versatility
From colors of paper and ribbon to colors of glitter, the ways you can personalize this banner with color are pretty much endless!
