I used letters in the Arial Black font (approx size 250) in lower case and printed out the letters and then cut them out carefully. I used plain, thick cardstock from DCWV spring theme for the banner penants.
I layered the letters onto patterned card and paper stock and then the letters on top. Then I glued them down onto the ribbon. The ribbon I have used here I saved from a bunch of flowers because I liked the colour. There were two pieces so I used an embellishment to cover where one ends and another begins.
Then the fun bit - embellishing the pennants with flowers and leaves:
The ribbon was still not that long, so I trimmed the banner with ribbons in a handful of different colours to hang at both ends.
Cue handy assistants (who moaned that there arms were aching from holding the banners up). We ended up with two - one that said Eid Mubarak and one that said Happy Eid.
