How To Create A Cheerful Summer Door Banner
by Diana Soling
Hello, crafty friends Diana here with a fun summer banner. These colors are so pretty together.
This banner was so much fun to make and with using my electronic cutting machine it came together quick and easy.
Here's how I created it:
Step 1: Choose your base image. Mine is a wreath from the silhouette store. This was meant to be a Christmas wreath but I switched it up.
Step 2: Choose your flowers or another fun image to add to the top of your wreath. I used a 4 layer flower image, again, from the silhouette store.
Step 3: Choose your cardstock and foiled paper colors.
Step 4: Cut your base (wreath) from your chosen cardstock color. Then you'll want to cut your flowers from the foiled paper. I did cut these several times to get the amount I needed.
Step 5: Adhere your flowers together using liquid glue around the center wholes. This will let you adhere to them but still be able to shape them. Then adhere them to the wreath base with liquid glue.
Step 6: Adhere to each wreath section to each other. I used liquid glue and then cut a strip of cardstock to fit the back and used both liquid glue and tape to adhere to it.
Step 7: Chose a banner sentiment for the front. I decided on Summer since the colors of the foiled paper were so bright. I cut this on my Cricut and found it by searching for summer banners. The banner is cut from dark purple cardstock and then I filled in the words with the ruby/starstruck foiled paper.
Step 8: Adhere the banner to your wreath. Then choose your ribbon color and length and attach it to the back of your wreath. I used scotch tape.
Then you're all finished! A new door or wall decor!
I got a lot of use out of this one sheet of ruby/starstruck foiled paper. Keep your scraps, you never know when you might need just a little bit to finish your project!

These flowers catch the light so nicely. I love how this foiled paper shines.
