Don’t you just love flags, and pennants and banners of all kinds?  Right now in the paper crafting world they are HOT, HOT, HOT – and Stampin’ Up! has made it easier than ever to incorporate these darling embellishments into your projects with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch just released in the NEW 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalogue. 

Today I decided to create a fun birthday card using this punch.  It’s a pretty atypical size – 4″ x 8″ – which I chose simply because I needed the extra room for my banner.  For an envelope I’m planning on altering a business sized envelope (which I’ll show you how to do in another video coming soon).

Now in addition to a video tutorial showing you how this project was made and a pdf handout for you to download – I’ve also put together a FREE Pennant Greetings download for you. These are greetings that I created especially to fit onto the pennants – you can see that I used “happy” for mine.  You can either use the greetings as is, or if you can’t find a greeting you like, then punch out whatever letters you need and make up a greeting of your own.  You can either upsize or downsize your project depending on the length of the greeting you choose. For example – choose the full “happy b-day” and create a banner that stretches across a scrapbook page!

I hope you enjoy today’s project!
