I made this simple banner for autumn. I actually started a tutorial, and then forgot I started it and completed the banner without taking pictures of the process.
Long story short: Cut paper squares in graduating sizes and glue them together. (Click picture for a better look.) I’m OK with my handwriting, so I freehanded the letters, but you could print letters if you’d like it to be more polished. I used a utility knife to cut slits for the ribbon–one inch grosgrain. Easy peasy. However, since I don’t have much time for crafting lately, it still took me several weeks to complete! Oh well. I’m just glad I got to make something pretty.
