Printed it on card stock, punched a hole in each letter disk, and then threaded it on some ribbon - easy peasy.
I hung our banner on the wall by the stairs, since it's the one spot we all walk by the most. I also added some leaf cut outs from Paper Source that I already happened to have. As we think of something to be thankful for we can write it on a leaf. I think it is a great exercise to teach the little bear what Thanksgiving is all about - not to mention a great reminder for the bigger bears in the house!
Since I'm willing to bet most of you do not already have left over fall leaves from your wedding(that was now over 4 years ago for me). I have included a page of blank circles that you can use to write what you are thankful on. You can download those HERE.
If you are wondering, I used My Memories Suite to do this project. I found MMS online a couple of weeks ago, and have been thoroughly enjoying learning all the cool aspects of the program. It is so much more than a digital scrap-booking thing. For a better explanation as well as a coupon code, check out Leelou Blogs.
I'd love to hear how each of you decided to use the banner!
