It's the last day of school!
I made this End Of School Happy Summer banner the other day and had been planning on hanging it outside so the boys could see it when they came home from school. And then it rained last night. And again this morning. And now it's raining again. I might have to take a boat to pick them up from school.
Anyway, you too can make one of these in less than ten minutes and make a kid's last day of school more special than it already is.
Here's what I did in five quick and easy steps - and the best part - at least for me - no sewing! Saying that just makes me smile.
Step 1: Grab some colored paper and some scrapbook paper you are not in love with and don't mind parting with for a small project.
Step 2: Cut the colored paper into pennant-style triangles. Cut an equal number of triangles from the scrapbook paper but make them slightly larger than the other triangles.
Step 3: Staple the smaller triangles on top of the larger ones.
Step 4: Using a thick marker and using your nice handwriting, write Happy Summer on the triangles, one letter per triangle.
Step 5. Staple each triangle onto a length of ribbon or string, making sure to leave some extra string at both ends so you can hang your pennant.
And you're done! Our pennant in hanging in the porch, all safe from the rain. But it's fun either way, and yay, summer's here!

Of course you are,
