Hey guys, I’m so excited to be here on the Idea Room today! I just adore Amy and everything she brings to the world. She’s one of those amazing people that just knows how to make people feel special, that’s a true gift. I’m one lucky girl to be able to call her friend.
I’m Heather from WhipperBerry, I love to cook, and create all kinds of goodies for my family and home. I’m also the co-founder of the BB Frösch Chalk Paint Company. If I’m not painting, I’m usually cooking-up something crazy!
As we get ready for our 4th of July celebrations, I thought I would put together a free printable banner to use for your Independence Day celebrations.
I’m loving creating all kinds of goodies with this machine. All you have to do is print something, ANYTHING, on a laser printer, run it through the machine and voilá… You have a beautiful foiled decor piece. If you don’t have a laser printer, don’t worry. You can print your printable at an office supply store and bring it home and run it through the Minc. With that said… I thought I would design some fun banners to use with your Minc. If you don’t have a Minc, I’ve got you covered too. You can print the printable banner in color as well and skip the foiling process all together.
Along with the banner, I foiled some pre-printed pinwheels that Heidi Swapp also sells at Hobby Lobby or other stores that carry the Minc, you can even order them online.
The fun thing with the foil is, it comes in several different colors. I’m planning a red, white, blue & gold theme for my 4th of July celebration and you can get red, blue & gold foil to dress up all of your decor for your gatherings.
I kind of consider myself a minimalist decorator for parties. I don’t generally go over the top. I do try and have one or two key focal points to make the occasion special, but I don’t go crazy. A banner like this makes a simple enough statement that you don’t really need a whole lot of extras to make your occasion extra special.
To create your own banner, you can download this free printable. If you are planning on foiling it, you need to make sure it’s printed on a laser printer.
Now, keep in mind… This is an unsolicited, unpaid post. I just truly love working with the Minc Foil Applicator. I’ve got you covered if you aren’t into foiling at all. I understand that it adds an extra step and extra expense to a project, for me it’s worth it! I was not given a Minc machine, I purchased it myself and purchased all of the foil and pinwheels myself as well. I just love creating with this fun machine!
Here’s another little secret… If you have a Silhouette, these banners cut really easily with the Silhouette PixScan Mat. Just thought I would share. I’m not sure if Cricut has a print and cut option, Maybe we can ask Amy in the comments! ;)
If you don’t have a Silhouette or Cricut… Don’t you fear! This cuts just as easy with a simple paper cutter or even scissors.
Here are some fun recipes & other printables from WhipperBerry that you can use at your 4th of July gathering…
Here’s a fun, healthy dessert that our family loves that will look amazing on any red, white & blue table.
I’ve got you covered her for Water, Lemonade, Root Beer, Punch & Sweet Tea.
This sweet treat takes the cake with the little salty bits of pretzel inside… delish!
