My oldest child will be graduating from high school in a few weeks and I've been looking for a way to show him just how wonderful I think he is. This banner would also be perfect for other special occasions: first communion, awards assemblies, tear-free trips to the dentist. Who doesn't need a pat on the back once in a while?
This banner comes in your choice of 2 colors- one color for the corner flourishes, ribbon and small letters and another color for the large letters. I've used gold and black in these photos (go Cibola Raiders!) but I can paint this banner in any 2 colors you like. Please leave me a message with your color choices when you checkout.
Our banners are hand painted on a heavyweight paperboard that is much thicker than cardstock. They are durable enough to be reused many times and they fold up for easy storage in a sandwich bag. This banner is made of 5 x 5 inch square cards. The overall size is approximately 48 inches long and 13 inches tall when hung as shown in my photos. I always include a generous length of ribbon on each end for easy hanging. If you need your banner to be a bit longer, you can space your cards further apart on the ribbon.
I hand stamp each letter and flourish with acrylic paint. This produces an image that is intentionally flawed and vintage-looking. To enhance this distressed look, I rub the edges of each card with ink. You can choose black or brown ink. If you look in the up-close photo, you can see that I used brown ink on this banner. Please remember, each banner is a unique work of art so your banner will look slightly different than these pictures.
This banner would look great with a matching "congratulations" banner that you can find here-
