I think it goes back to my first apartment in college. Overjoyed with the simple pleasure of creating my own space on a budget and finding such joy in the littlest of things, I fell in love with hanging words, phrases and personalizing simple truths.
Fast forward decades later and nothing much has changed. The place I hang my creations may look a tad different, but I still have the same joy every time I hang words.
With the beauty of the internet, we now have access to so many wonderful options, yet often, I spend hours trying to find the perfect template to make a simple banner, cake topper or home decor inspiration. After spending hours attempting to make something a little nicer than most kindergarteners, I decided to collaborate with my designer and asked her to create 90 pages of varying templates, letters, hearts, shapes and more. Yes, now you have a one stop spot for all your banner and word decor needs.
With varying sizes, you no longer have to spend hours to make that perfect triangle (ask me how I know).
Now, it’s done for you.
You can print out the letters that you need and layer them over your favorite scrapbook paper or fabric.
With small, medium and large shapes, you will not have to guess if your shapes are symmetrical.
I love the simplicity of Martha Stewart’s hanging circle banners, so we are taking one step farther and giving you multiple styles from which to choose.
Again, print onto card stock, hang and embellish how you see fit. It’s so simple, frugal and elegant. Simple triangle and hearts inspiration Love triangle banner inspiration I happened up my friend Laura’s ugly dress b-day party (isn’t that a fun idea) and I love how she layered her letters onto this bold card stock.
I had to add this to my line up because Michelle at the Painted Hinge just added a free rustic inspired template that I think is adorable!! You can use my template for a larger triangle and then just print her letters that already come on rustic background. Make sure your ink is up to date. 🙂 So cute!!
I actually own a large punch that would allow me to do this too. I love banner inspiration!
And here is eye candy without an alphabet letter in sight. Use the large triangle template as your guide, trace onto fabric or card stock, cut out individual triangles, and hot glue onto a long piece of ribbon to hang.
As I begin creating more and more banners for varying occasions, I will make sure and update this page with additional inspiration.
I’d love to see your creations as well. Would you send me a picture once you are finished and I’ll add it right here?
