I made this voting banner because election day is coming up. Voting has even started in part of the country. Everyone needs to let their voice be heard. I don’t want to tell anyone who to vote for. Thats not my place. Just vote.
This Voting Banner would make a nice polling place decoration or a teaching aid in a classroom to start a discussion on voting. You can make it as big as you want. Kids could even make this as an art project!
Red, white and blue seemed appropriate for this voting banner. The cardstock doesn’t have to be any particular weight. Pattern will work nicely for the embellishments. I think patterns would work for the banner base too, but the fireworks may not show up.
I used a silver marker to draw the fireworks. The bigger you make the pieces, the thicker marker you will need. Try it on one to see how it looks.
Did you know that you can use a variety of pens in your machine? Not just cricut pens. Just follow the easy tips here.
Assembling the Voting Banner
This project is so easy even kids can assemble it. The donkey and elephant embellishments are several layers. First, glue them together with liquid glue or a glue stick. Save all the stars cut out in the other pieces and next glue them to the letters of VOTE. Finally attach everything to a banner piece following the picture as a guide.
Lastly, with a hole punch, make a hole in the top of each banner piece. Put the string through the holes and your voting banner is ready to hang!
