I started off by figuring out how to fit the most triangles as possible onto my paper pack (from JoAnns, by the way). It ended up being about 3 1/4 across the top and 4 3/4 inches down...
Next step is to punch a 3-inch scallop per letter (16 for HAPPY*HALLOWEEN!) out of white cardstock and using black stickers, applied a letter per scallop ( I got a pack of stickers that contained both upper and lower case letters, giving me 2 banners per pack!)
Then using double-stick tape (high-tech, I know!) apply the scallops to the triangle pennants.
Punch holes in the two corners, and tie cute ribbon in between each pennant.
12 inch pieces for the 1st and last one, and 5 inch pieces to double knot and of course cut at an angle (way cuter at an angle!)
Hang, and enjoy! I think it would be awesome to find some double sided papers so it would look great from two different rooms over an archway... just a suggestion for next time.
