Adorable, right?

Supplies You’ll Need:

  • 4 – 12 x 12 pieces of scrapbook paper
  • 2 – 12 x12 pieces of cardstock {I used one white and one blue}
  • Ruler or measuring tape
  • Glue gun
  • Jute twine
  • Rubber cement
  • Pen
  • Hole punch
  • Scissors

Cut all four pieces of scrapbook paper into 8×12 and 4×12 pieces.  I cut mine like this {above} because I wanted the stripes to go around in circles once I had them pleated and folded.

Pleat 8 x 12 pieces like this.

Then fold pleated paper in half.

Hot glue one edge and then press the edges together to form a fan shape {half-round shape}.

Looking pretty!!

Then pleat the 4 x 12 pieces.

Put a dab of hot glue in between each fold near the tip.  Squeeze the pleats together.  Then hot glue the folded 4 x 12 piece to the folded 8 x 12 piece to complete a circle.

I LOVE how this paper folded and how the circles turned out!

To make the centers, I used my Silhouette machine to cut out scalloped white circles from cardstock.  You could also use decorative scissors to achieve a scalloped edge.

Use rubber cement to glue the circles to another piece of cardstock {I used blue} and then cut them out with scissors.  {See how they look below!}

Cut out letters whatever word you want.  Use a stencil or a cutting machine. I adore my Silhouette and use it all. the. time!

Punch holes in the circles {one on each side} and thread jute twine through so you can hang up your new, cute, Spring banner!
