School Spirit Banner

Who loves school spirit? Me!! I made this school spirit banner using Joy embroidered letters. It's super simple to make - you can make several for your kids and their friends to use at rallies, on the field or at the dance. 

To cut each triangle pennant,  I split a sheet of 12" x 12" paper into three 4" sections and cut the triangles out, trimmed them down a bit and then placed them on top of a contrasting color of card stock - using our school colors, of course! I trimmed the outer triangles about a 1/4" larger than the inside triangles.

Use a marker to ink the edges of your paper so the white core does not show.

Tape each pennant along a ribbon to string into a banner, then glue a decorative ribbon across the top in front, if desired.

Instead of trying to iron the letters to paper, I used craft glue to attach them. These white embroidered letters have a terrific varsity team look - and you can ink or dye them another color if you want to. Now we're ready to chant and cheer - big "G" little "o" - Go! Go!
