Hello, everyone! It’s Jennifer here with a fun way to spice up your weekends in your planner! Sure, weekend banners are awesome... but weekend banners with washi sticker flags are even better! Let’s get started! The newly reformatted Popfizzpaper weekly kits now come with washi sticker strips! Each weekly set has three different designs of washi strips, and each design has two different sizes of washi strips: three quarter box sized strips and four narrower header sized strips. We’re going to use these stickers to make a banner!
This design uses all three patterns of washi stickers: three quarter box sized strips of design A; two quarter box sized strips of design B; and 4 header sized strips of design C. So go ahead and decide which design you’d like to use for A, B, and C.
Starting with your A strips, slightly bend one end of the strips so the corners touch, and make a diagonal cut with your scissors down towards the end of the strips as illustrated in the photo. This will give you a cute “v” shaped flag when you open the sticker back up. Trim the strip for length, if you’d like, then place one A strip at each end where you’d like your weekend banner to go. Add your last A strip in the middle.
Cut your pattern B strips into flags as well, trim the length as you wish, and lay the B strips down between the A strips. One thing to note, you don’t have to worry about having the tops of the banners all even because we’re going to cover the tops with the actual weekend banner sticker at the end! You should have a small gap in between each strip. Cut your 4 design C strips into flags as well and use them to cover the small gaps between your wider strips. You should end up with the pattern A C B C A C B C A. Finally, place the actual weekend banner sticker from your kit over the tops of your washi flags.
How adorable is that, you guys?! I used the Rio kit for this project, but all of the newly redesigned Popfizzpaper weekly kits have washi strips too! Do you have a favorite way to use the new washi strip stickers? I’d love to see! Please share it on the Popfizzpaper Fans Facebook group!
