How to make a unicorn banner with printables

Printing and using this happy birthday banner with unicorns is so easy!
First you’ll need to download your free printable (located below).
Next, print your banner pendants. If you’re using the free version, just print every page. If you purchase the full alphabet version, print only the pages you need.
It’s incredibly important to pick the right paper for your printable banner. Do not use plain copy paper. It simply won’t look that nice. Instead, print on white cardstock or, my personal favorite, presentation paper.
Presentation paper is a heavyweight paper with a special coating for crisp, vibrant images. When printables are printed on presentation paper instead of cardstock, the pictures are a lot brighter and more clear.
This banner has plenty of white space so you can print it at home without using all of your ink. If you don’t want to print at home, you can also take it to a copy center for printing.
Next it’s time to cut the banner pendants out. I find it easiest to use a paper cutter on the straight lines and scissors for the diagonal cut-out at the bottom of the pendant.
Now it’s time to string up your banner! You can punch two small holes along the top of each pendant and thread them onto ribbon or twine. You can also use clothespins to clip your banner to a ribbon. This technique is quick and easy, but doesn’t always work as well with cardstock.
A colorful organza ribbon like this one works well. It isn’t slippery, so the pendants will stay in place better (plus the unicorn rainbow colors are a perfect fit for a unicorn party!)
Hang your banner and enjoy!
