Photo Clip BannerPhoto clip banners are very popular and trendy for events like a bridal shower, baby shower, engagement, wedding, birthday, graduation, etc.

You can make cute flower accents from water bottles and hang from a string. Then using cute clothespins (clip photos), in example I attached are notecards. You can also decorate notecards too, but I used this as a photo clip banner.

  13. Once your banner is hung, you can attach photos and use mini clothespins to keep the photos on the ribbon. (I used notecards as an example of photos), or you can decorate the notecards.
