You didn’t think I’d let a holiday go by without making one of my signature banners, did you? I hung this up on our front door and even my husband said it looks nice – and that’s the best kind of testimonial I can receive! This was another easy project using just scrapbook paper and a paper punch. I found this red and white striped scrapbook paper and my first thought was “candy canes” … but I just had to turn it at an angle and – boom – flag stripes! If you can’t find red and white striped paper, a good substitute is to simply alternate plain red and white cardstock for the Mickey shapes.
Stars and Stripes Mickey Banner
- Red and white striped scrapbook paper
- Blue glitter scrapbook paper
- Star paper punch
- Mickey shape template
- Glue Stick
- Scotch tape
- String or twine
Step 1 – Use the Mickey head template to trace shapes on the back of the striped scrapbook paper. Cut them out.
Step 2 – Punch out stars from the blue glitter paper, three for each Mickey shape.
Step 3 – Using the glue stick, glue three stars to each Mickey shape. I put one star on each ear, and one in the middle.
Step 4 – Tape the back of each Mickey head to the twine, a couple inches apart. Hang on the wall or over your door, or anywhere you want to look more patriotic!
Wasn’t that easy? Have a great Fourth of July!
