DIY Graduation “Carpe Diem” Banner


When I graduated high school, I was ready. Ready to take on the world! I love the new, free downloadable cards for the Class of 2013 just released in the shop. And it’s so easy to make a cute banner to hang at a grad party that coordinates. Here’s how:

What you’ll need:

  • Colorful card stock
  • Printer
  • Scissors
  • Needle
  • Baker’s Twine or Yarn


Step 1: Figure out what you want your banner to say. I chose “CARPE DIEM” to coordinate with the cards.

Step 2: Print letters on card stock. Keep in mind that you want them to be mirrored so when you cut them out, they’ll be readable with the color on front.

Step 3: Cut out the letters

Step 4: Use your needle to string the letters together and arrange as you like and you’re done!


Now go CARPE that DIEM!
