This banner craft allows you to customize your decorations to your exact liking. The streamers are cut from tissue paper. So pick precisely the colors you want, follow the directions, and you will have yourself the perfect banner to dress up your party. Get as fancy or as basic as you want. For a more sophisticated look, go monochromatic, with a few shades of the same color. Or do a few just one solid color.
