What party doesn’t need that little extra something? What home doesn’t need that little extra splash of decor? Well, Fancy Pants Designs Chipboard Banner Sets are a great place to start! What’s not to love about a sturdy, high-quality chipboard banner that can be decorated to stand the test of time? Just think of the options! Birthday parties, baby showers, summer, 4th of July… Sheesh, I think I’d even like to create a fun Halloween themed banner!

First, I gather a variety of products to place on the chipboard banner pieces, both large and small, hard and soft, flat and dimensional. I like to gather most of my products before I start my project, then I choose from the pile to create each banner piece.
I like to layer everything on to the banner piece before adhering any of the layers together.
I like to curl pieces (as shown) to make the parts stand off of the banner piece and add dimension beacuase I don’t like everything to look flat.
I layer and tuck the elements together until the piece looks pretty full.
Here are all of my elements layered together on one banner piece.
I decided to ink the edges of the flower print scallop circle. Then I was happy with the banner piece and I started to glue the items together.
I use a mixture of foam adhesive, Tombo glue, and Zots glue dots to arrange the elements at different levels.
I prepared each letter by sanding the edges and tying a piece of twine around it.
