Love the banner idea! These are great instructions and are also an inspiration to be creative. In addition to the method presented here, you could also use felt or other fabric affixed on the card stock and cover with some decopage for protection. For a very authentic or heirloom patriotic look, you could use the more traditional red, white and flag blue colors in your design. This banner would look stunning on a mantel, a porch railing or even above the serving table. Super idea!
