Folding… a Birthday Banner

Inspiration struck in the shower this morning! Today I am bringing S’mores Bars into work (you will see a post soon with the recipe) for my coworker’s birthday BUT it also happens to be the 10 year anniversary of our boss being bossy!

Figuring a sign was in order to explain the dual celebration, I fell back on an old elementary school art class trick – the accordion banner!

Accordion Fold Birthday Banner

From start to finish, this project took me 1 hour and 20 minutes.

First, I sketched out my banners and drew a vertical grid over top for reference.

Second, I drew out the final vertical grid and penciled in the alternating banners.


Third, Colored it all in and started folding.

Finally, Taped it up to the wall and add a little bit of flare!
