DIY Halloween banner BOO

Halloween is near and I still did not put any decorations outside the house. I hide the box with Halloween stuff in the far corner of the top shelf in a garage and it is almost un-reachable. A tall ladder would help for sure but at least at this point I am just walking by.

That's why I am especially interested in some new quick DIY projects for Halloween.
I contacted Irina (Graphicland) wondering if she could help to make a simple graphics banner for me. She was excited and pretty soon the new banner was born. Irina was also kind enough to give me permission to share these graphics with my blog readers.
   So, here is the banner and it is really easy to make. 
 Just print the graphics and cut out the flag triangles. Glue them to the cardstock and put them under some heavy books to make sure they will stick and be flat. I would suggest using wax paper to put between the book and the cardstock to make sure that the cardstock will not be glued to the book. About 30 minutes to one hour should be enough.

Now, cut the flags out of the cardstock. You can cut it either really close to the paper edge or leave some space, it's up to you. Make two holes in both top corners of your flags with a paper punch. Thread the jute cord through the holes in the flags. Leave enough jute to reach the areas to tie it to.
It's ready! You can add some embellishments to make it more personal and it will become one of a kind.

You can download the graphics for this projects here (1, 2, 3) or visit Irina's blog for more great projects!
 Have fun with this projects!
