Honor Your Veterans With This Banner

Happy Veteran's Day to all who served.
I appreciate every moment you dedicated to our country.
I have several family members who have served, so I came up with a way to honor them on this day.

A veteran's banner.
I used the word "Honor" and displayed photos of loved ones who were in the military.

If you like this and want to make one, here's what you need to do.
Cut out five pieces of pattern paper measuring 2 3/4"x 4".
Cut out five pieces of coordinating cardstock measuring 3"x 4 1/4"

Adhere the pattern paper to the cardstock mats.

Apply the letters to the pattern paper.
If you have a Cricut, you can cut out your letters. If you don't, you can use large stickers or foam stamps and paint like I did.

You don't have to use the word "Honor."
You could go with "Serve" or "Service" or whatever you like.

Punch holes in the top corners of the letter cards. String them onto a piece of twine leaving space in between each letter.

Hang photos in between the letters.
I used 1" clothespins.
You could also punch holes in the photos and hang them like the letter cards.

Tie red and blue ribbons at each end of the banner.

Such a nice way to honor our veterans, isn't it?

Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

The Lord is your keeper
Psalm 121:5
