DIY {believe} Banner

This weeks DIY is this shabby chic book page cute hung above your mantle, windows, pretty much anywhere!  Super easy and here is what you need:

  • a random book you don't mind destroying
  • computer/printer
  • glitter
  • glue
  • twain
  • painters tape {optional}

Here are the steps
  1.  First you need to decide what you want your banner to say {in this case I choose the word BELIEVE} one of my favorites for Christmas!  Tear the pages out of your book carefully making sure to get the full page from the binding.
  2. Next pick a program on your computer to type the letters.  You will be printing them one letter at a time.  I like to use the program but your microsoft word, or photo editors will be able to do this for you as well.  
  3. Make your letter quite large so it takes up at least 3/4 the page.  When printing make sure that you are printing a 5x7 so it will fit on your book page.  I print from windows photo gallery.  I cheat and tape my book page with painters tape {this way it won't tear the paper when you take it off} to where it will print on an 8.5x11 sheet of paper.  See pictures below!  Print our your letter.  

4. Once you have created your word, I added a little glitter around the edges of the letter just to give it a little extra Winter sparkle.  
5. Punch holes in both corners of each letter in the upper right and left corners!
6. String with your twain {or any ribbon of choice} and you  have now created your banner!!                 
Merry Making!!
