DIY FELT YEAH BANNER



"Y-E-A-H,  June!"

"Y-E-A-H, Graduates!"

"Y-E-A-H, Visitors"

"Y-E-A-H" for so many things!

June's making us feel all happy and has brought so much action already.  We've had multiple uses for this expression and these banners. What started off as "just" banners became Graduation Cards when I realised that I could make these to fit neatly in an envelope with confetti and a tag.   (I love dual purposed cards, don't you? (like these + these)  

There is no sewing here so these can be whipped up in 5 minutes. Jump with us below and we'll share how you can make these, too!




We've even had reasons to say: "Y-E-A-H, "Carambar" this week with one family knowing what to stuff in his luggage for big popularity! Are you familiar with these French candies wrapped with a riddle? They're like gold with the kids and friends.
