Patriotic USA Tag Banner Tutorial

Hello everyone!  Today, I’m sharing a USA banner in honor of the 4th of July. I’ve used Crafty Foam Tape Black and 3D Foam Squares White Mix, 3D Foam Squares Black Mix to add dimension. Each pendant is a #8 manila tag turned so the hole is at the bottom where a star dangles.

Making the USA Tag Banner

To recreate this banner, first paint each tag white,  then emboss and distress with stain.

Next fasten strip of navy card stock and star paper across bottom of tag which will be top for banner using E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser.

Cut scalloped open circles from dot paper and red cardstock. Use same inner circle and different size scallop circles. Fasten together using E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser. Distress with stain. Apply 3D Foam Squares White Mix to back. Fasten to tags.

Cut U S A letters from navy cardstock. Apply pieces of Crafty Foam Tape Black to back of each letter. Fasten each letter to tag.

Cut 3 different sizes of stars: 6 of navy, 3 each of red and dot paper.  Fasten dot, red and navy stars together using E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser. Other navy star is for back. Apply 3D Foam Squares Black Mix to center of navy star for back (3D Foam Squares add dimension to star).  Add Adhesive Dots Mini to each point. Fasten to layered star leaving one point unfastened.

Insert trim into tag hole. Fold and fasten ends together with Extreme Double-Sided Tape ¼ʺ. Wrap a piece of Extreme Double-Sided Tape ¼ʺ over trim end so tape is on both sides. Insert trim between points of star and fasten together over trim.

Finally, punch holes on each side of tag top. Thread cord through holes. Tie short ribbons between pendants and at each end. The banner is ready to display!

Have a happy 4th of July!
