1. Taking the construction paper in the color that you want the pennant to be, measure the top part of the pennant to be 7 inches across.

2. From the middle of the top of the pennant (3.5 inches), measure down 9 inches to make your point.

3. Connect each end of the top of the pennant to the point and then cut your pennant out.

5. Once finished, cut out and glue down the number/letter to the middle of the pennant.

6. Take your ribbon and hot-glue along the top edges of the pennant. Continue to do the same with all others.

    I am interested in your DIY Paper Pennant. In addition to the wedding date, I was thinking of having white paper or dollie pennants flying in the yard all around the house i.e. 200 feet of paper triangle penants. Don’t know if you can help me but I would like to talk to someone. about this. Please send me a phone number so that I can call you. Thank you.

  15. Such photographers are well known for the services that
    they provide. We assist newcomers to perfect their skills for street
    or urban photography. A boudoir photography session will result in
    sensual photographs which will be taken of you in sexy underwear or
    even nude if you wish, however they are all taken extremely tastefully and
    so you do not need to worry that your gift for your partner will look tacky.

    It was after World War II that ergonomics began to include not only productivity, but also the safety of the workers.

    For example, if you invented a new diet plan, write a
    weekly weight loss tips newsletter. The Colour Changing LED
    Shower Head is able to change the color of water depending on water temperature.

    In 1879, Thomas Jefferson invented the electric light
    bulb. Joining Junior Achievement contests will certainly
    hone their entrepreneurial skills. A higher wattage device can typically produce steam
    quicker than a lower wattage device.

  18. As a result, there is no need for any additional crew to look after the
    operations when software is there to do so. I want to be
    patted on the head and told that I’m a good girl. A question begs to be answered in regards to learning organizations in ‘novel’ or new situations.
