DIY Minions Birthday Party Ideas – Banner with Sizzix eclips2

This DIY birthday banner can be made for any party but I created it to perfectly match my Minions birthday party. To change the theme of the banner, simply change the colors of the paper used and the words on the banner. I used the Sizzix eclips2 to create this fun banner with extra long pennants using a shape from Basic Grey and the Sizzix eShape store. I love the festive look of the long pennants!
