Cinco de Mayo is next week and after eating at a local Mexican restaurant over the weekend I was inspired to create a few fun banners. A little useless information before we begin - the day I made the banners I happened to be wearing a matching neon green dress (which I scored at Ross for $6 I might add) and I had a five and three year old who were dying to show me their photography skills. I now have a zillion photos of myself wearing this cheap neon dress but I will spare you and only include two.
For this banner you will need a silhouette to cut out the shapes. I am giving you the dxf files for this banner HERE and HERE. (These files are for personal use only and can not be sold or used to make a banner you will sell. If you take a picture of your banner in a matching dress please share.) The first file is the shape on the left and the second one is the shape on the right. In order for this to work you need to resize the shape on the right to be smaller and fit inside the bigger scalloped edge shape.
I used a pack of letter sized neon cardstock but this file would also make an awesome patriotic banner if you did it in red, white and blue! The picture below shows the shapes after I finished cutting them all out. I used my hole punch to put holes on the tops of each banner and then rubber cement to glue the semi circle stripe. After the glue dried I used bakers twine to string them up.
Now all I need is a bowl of chips and salsa with a tall margarita!
Stop by tomorrow for a bright and festive Cinco de Mayo pennant banner.Enjoy,
I party HERE
