Thanksgiving "Newsprint" and a Banner

A couple of people have asked if I would share the file I created to make the newsprint I used in my Thanksgiving Newsprint Decorations. So I saved the file as a PDF and it is available for download here. I should note that the text for the file came from here.

I also created a banner using the newsprint. It was easy and quick to make.

I just followed these simple steps.
1. Using a ruler and pencil create a triangle in your desired size on a piece of card stock. Cut out your triangle out to create a stencil.
2. Print multiple copies of your "newsprint" onto card stock.  The size of your triangles will dictate the number of sheets you'll need to print. I was able to cut two triangles out of one sheet.
3. Trace and cut out 10 triangles from your newsprint. You could tea stain your newsprint for a more antique look. I did that for my framed decorations but opted not to do that for this banner.
4. Adhere letters to your newsprint triangles. I cut them out using my Slice machine but if you don't have a personal cutter you could always use sticker letters.
5. Adhere the triangles to ribbon and hang your banner!
