No Sew Teacher Banner + NEW Silhouette Promo

This post was recently shared on Skip to my Lou as part of the Teacher Appreciation series. If you haven't already, go check out all of the fun gift ideas that have been shared.

We're big fans of making banners for all kinds of occasions. Like our Spring Banner and Celebrate Banner. We thought it would be fun to do something a little different and make a special banner for those special teachers to hang up in their classrooms. And one of my favorite parts... there is no sewing required!



SUPPLIES:
• felt
• white flocked heat transfer
• thick lacing cord
• piece of cardboard
• tacky glue (not pictured)


TO MAKE:
• make a template for your banner pieces using the cardboard. (we cut ours to 5 in. wide to 6 in. long and cut a notch out of the bottom.)
• fold a sheet of felt in half, trace your template onto the folded felt (fold at the top) and cut out.


• then, with the heat transfer, cut out your letters using the silhouette. (font used: silverfake)
• iron on your letters following the directions on the package. and while you're at it, iron the fold on the felt. 
• fold your banner pieces over the lacing cord and add a few dabs of glue to the bottom edges.


There are so many color options you can come up with.
And for extra credit, you can whip up a few different banners for your teacher to hang up throughout the year.
