How To Make Free Welcome Back Teacher Banner?
You Will Need
- A4 Card
- String or Ribbon
- Hole punch or silent setter
- Scissors to cut out by hand
- Cricut Maker or Explore ( If you are going to print and cut)
Print Your Welcome Back Teacher Banner Flags
Start by opening the files, and putting A4 card into your printer. Also note that card will look better than paper, although you can use paper too. You now have several options.
You can open each file and send each Welcome Back Teacher Banner flag to print. The files are sized to print at 4 x 5.2 inches, which is the perfect size for an easy printable banner. Remember you will also need to print 2 copies of the letter c, and end flags. Also make sure your printer is not set to 2 sided printing. If it is, turn it off.
Or alternatively, if you want your Welcome Back Teacher Banner flags to be a different size? I have provided the banner in PNG file format, these will open in Word, Pages and the free version of Canva. Simply import or upload and size to the size you would like to print, ensuring they are all the same size before sending to print.
You can also upload the files to Cricut as print and cut files and you Cricut Machine will print and cut the project for you. I have a full post on how to use Cricut Print and Cut if you are new to Cricut.
Cut Out Your Welcome Back Teacher Banner
Next use a guillotine to cut out the edges off your banner. And use a pair of scissors to cut out the V area of the banner flag.
If you have a Cricut send to cut making sure you load the flag into your Cricut the same way as it appears on your screen.
Make Holes To Hang The Banner
Once your Welcome Back Teacher Banner is cut , simply use a hole punch or silent setter to create holes to thread string through. And if you want to add an edging along the top if your banner do it at this point. I used purple metallic washi tape to finish my flags off.
Hang Your Welcome Back Teacher Banner
Lastly thread the string through the banner. I thread from the front the the back of the first hole. This way the string threads along the back of the flag and your happy birthday banner looks neater.
