Print your FREE New Year's Banner !

{Happy New Year Banner}
First you'll need to print out the banner. You can click on the picture above or click here to get the download. {The zip includes the banner, hat, and flags.} We used cardstock so the banner would be a little more sturdy. You could also print the banner out on different colors of paper and the would be totally cute.

Then cut out the letters. This should be easy since all you need to do is cut the 81/2"X11" page into fourths. {Each letter is approx. 4.25"X5.5"}
And if you can't wait for your mom to use the paper cutter, you can just get your own scissors and go for it! {Sidebar: He's a lefty, but used his right hand for scissors...hmmm!}
Now decorate those letters! Ethan chose to use blue glitter paint, but you could use crayons, markers, glitter glue, or anything fun to make your banner pretty!

Then we waited for the paint to dry...

And while we waited, we pulled out our leftover curling ribbon and cut it to make the banner. {This was a great project for Ethan: Measuring+cutting=a great time!}



And don't you worry about Aidan...he got a hold of some curling ribbon himself and had quite a good time with it!

Then we made holes on each side of the letters & used the curling ribbon to tie the letters together...



And it turned out so great!


{Party Hat}
Don't put those markers away quite yet! Its time to decorate your party hat!



Color, cut, tape, & make a few holes and you're almost done!



Let those creative juices flow...

{Party flags} Okay, these really are cute--I orginally had in mind to put these on toothpick to put on the finger food on New Year's...like cheese, olives, etc., but I couldn't find my toothpicks! So, they turned into little flags.:) I'm sure you can think of other fun ways to utilize these stickers!
These little guys print on address label sheets: Avery 5260/8160 They are in assorted colors so the kiddies can still decorate them if they want to.


So go and have some fun...and Happy New Year!
