Dad's Pennant

It's almost June, everyone, and you know what that means? That's right, Father's Day is right around the corner. (It falls on June 17th, to be exact.) So to help everyone prepare, I wanted to share an easy Father's day project with you.

These Father's Day pennants are made using our pre-cut chipboard shapes and scrapbooking supplies like paper and embellishments. We simply taped our papers to the chipboard shapes and then used an Xacto knife to trim around the edges. We also added a few buttons toward the bottom of the pennant for an additional embellishment. A hot-glue gun and glue sticks make these pennants really quick to make.

The last bit of embellishment that we added was the word "Dad" placed on a dimensional, circular accent which we made out of paper. We simply took a 1.5" x 12" piece of paper and scored it every quarter inch and then accordion folded it. Tape this into a circle and hot glue to the pennant for a great dimensional touch. "Dad" was printed out on the computer using a word program and then punched out using a 2.5 inch circle punch.

These pennants are great for any occasion but we thought them especially good for a Dad who may have too many neckties. You can drop by our store to check out all of the great Father's Day ideas we're featuring.
