{New Contributor} Kristyn from 'Lil Luna

Hey there Shindig Peeps!

I am Kristyn over at Lil' Luna, and I'm happy to announce that I will be making a regular monthly appearance here on Shindig. How stinkin' FUN is that?!? I am so stoked because I love Amanda and EVERYTHING she does. The girl is amazing, and I love all the printables in her shop and all the FREEBIES she offers here on her site.

Just to let you know a little about myself...

I'm married to a VERY supportive husband who helps me with all my crazy craft endeavors.

I also have 3 kids under 3, and I LOVE them so much. They definitely keep me busy but they bring me so much joy! I also just moved into my first house and I cannot wait to start crafting and creating to make it a HOME. :)

Today I will be showing you how to make a

SUPER fun, BUT EASY Interchangeable Pennant BANNER.

Here is what you'll need...


-Scrapbook Paper
-Glue Stick
-Sewing Machine
-Chipboard Letters


1. Begin by cutting out triangles in the size that you would like for your banner. I made a pattern out of cardstock for a 6" and 7" triangle. I wanted to make 9 triangles because the largest word I thought I wanted to make was CELEBRATE, so 9 six inch triangles and 9 seven inch triangles. :)

2. Trace smaller triangles onto the patterned scrapbook paper you chose, and then larger triangles onto the plain cardstock paper.





3. Glue triangles together and then sew a zig-zag stitch onto the triangles {this zig-zag stitch adds the perfect embellishment to the banner and makes it more durable!}

4. Hole punch triangles at the tops and string through tulle or ribbon.




5. Hot glue magnets onto your chipboard letters. And then place a magnet on the backside of the triangles to SPELL out the word you want to use. Do this with the rest of the letters for more words you would like to make. You can then INTERCHANGE the letters to display different words.

6. Hang and ENJOY your fun and easy Interchangable Banner!

I hope you like this fun craft.

Be sure to come over and say hi over at Lil' Luna.
