It's a Banner Day

     I HEART banners.  I wanted to add something fun and a little funky to our basement classroom without spending an arm and a leg (or taking hours to cut, paste, or sew!)

     This cute little banner fit the bill perfectly.  Look closely- it's made from larger paint swatch cards!  I was in the hardware store waiting for my floor color to get mixed up and I saw the huge display of paint swatches and thought they were just gorgeous.  In between is just a smaller paint swatch.

     Even the twine was free- it was leftover from bringing home the hardboard I used to make the chalkboard.  I cut the pieces and punched holes in them while Napoleon decided to put them in a "pretty pattern".  Then we just threaded the twine through and hung them up.  Super simple and easy peasy.
