Father’s Day Banner

This project was featured on

Banner’s can be seen everywhere these days so why not make one to celebrate “Dad” this Father’s Day.

I recently showed you how to create a banner from badge holders and I decided to use them for this project as well.
  • Cut cardstock to the size of your badge holder
  • Ink up your sea sponge with embossing ink and pounce over cardstock pieces
  • Drizzle Chocolate Embossing Powder over cardstock and heat emboss
  • With inked sea sponge, pounce over embossed cardstock
  • Drizzle with French Vanilla embossing powder; heat emboss.
  • Again, with your inked sea sponge, pounce over embossed cardstock
  • Drizzle with EP Max Steel
  • Final time, pounce over embossed cardstock with inked sea sponge
  • Drizzle EP Lite NST Copper; heat emboss.
  • Fold badge holder in half and “dove tail” the bottom; do this for all three.
  • Slip embossed cardstock into badge holder and trim the bottom edge.
  • Cut letters from Sticky Paper using die cut machine; emboss with NST Copper embossing powder.
  • Layer letters onto pre cut cardstock mat letters.; adhere to front of each badge.
OPTIONAL: Line edge of each badge with Sticky Tape and glitter with Chocolate. (I do not recommend that you use embossing powder since the badges are plastic and might possibly melt.)
  • Attach ribbon to center badge and cut ends to resemble a tie.
  • String badges together using twine.
