Square Banner 4x4 Centerpiece Tutorial - Party Store

The 4x4 banner printables can be used for banners or centerpieces. Fun and so easy to add to your tables. Great for table numbers, table decor or for your banner!

You will need
Photo gloss or matte paper!
One digital 4x4 banner or 4x4 centerpiece printable from my party store.
(you get the full page of design along with the banner )  
You will need a base to add your banner to. 
I used small metal buckets, flower balls, paper bags.
*anything to add your paper centerpiece to*
Small wooden dowel, lollipop or cakepop stick, Popsicle stick or clear flower card inserts
*you will be attaching your paper to it with tape*
If you are using a bucket you will need filler for the buckets( gems, stones, or tissue paper)

Home Printing
The full printing looks best printed on photo glossy or matte paper. It gives the best quality and weight.
8.5 x 11 JPEG format at 300 dpi.
I have two papers I love
The dollar tree paper works wonderful if you want a glossy beautiful image. (I know..DOLLAR TREE...It is fantastic!) The dollar tree paper also has blank on the back!
 Kodak gloss paper works great. It prints perfect. Not  glossy, but with the perfect amount of shine for crystal clear images...They also have the perfect amount of thickness for a nice professional looking print. 
These can also be printed at your local printing center that prints on full sheets such as 
(Kinkos...Office max....Staples..etc...on glossy card stock looks great.....)

Tape your 4x4 banner to the back of your dowel, or stick.

 Now choose what you are going to add it to!
If you are using a bucket, jar, or bag you will need to add a filler to it!

Then add your stick to the middle!! You can also use fun items to add the centerpieces to!! I found grapevine or flower balls. You can add to a bowl with glass gems! 

You can find these in my party store at www.cupcakecutieesparty.etsy.com
