November Monday Made It - Give Thanks Banner

This is my first attempt at creating a pennant banner for my classroom. While it isn't the best thing out there or even my own actual design, I am proud of it! I got the clip art and frames from The Digital Bake Shop. The font is DJ ChunkM from DJ Inkers. I did it all in MS Word, since I don't have Photoshop or anything like that. I couldn't figure out how to crop the background paper image into a pennant shape, so when I printed them out, it looked like this.

It was easy to cut them into a pennant shape, and I used the extra scraps to Mod Podge onto some clothespins for hanging the pennants on the line. And of course I laminated them before hanging so that they would last.

So if anyone knows how to crop images into certain shapes in MS Word, please comment with the instructions! :)

Is it sad that this is the only thing that I have for this month's Monday Made It?

  2. Love it! I don't know if you could crop the background into a pennant shape in Word, but you may be able to start with the pennant shape and then fill it with your background.

  3. I love your "Give Thanks" pennant banner. I had a "Welcome" pennant banner up at the beginning of the year and your banner makes me realize how much I need a new pennant banner. Adorable!

    Thanks for the inspiration,

  5. Use powerpoint! So much easier to work with than word!

    1. I've never thought of PowerPoint for anything other than presentations. Hmm...
