Create Your Banner
Start by laying out your template and figuring out the pattern you want. You can use four-inch and three-inch circles in three different colors of scrapbooking to make your banner. In this case, you can use the colors green, blue, and brown for your pattern. To get a vintage look, use a vintage pattern that will be able to complement each other.
The next thing is to flip the paper, trace the circles, and cut them out carefully. Once you have cut all of them, go ahead and glue them. They use a puncher to make two holes on top of every circle. Then thread a string into the holes of the circles and ensure they are all good and your baby shower banner is now ready to be displayed- check out how to hang banners with grommets.
