:: STEP 1 ::

Cut your yarn according to the length of banner you wish to have. This will determine how many magazines you will need to cut to complete your banner.

:: STEP 2 ::

Depending on the pages you have, you are going to want to capture certain characters or scenes from your magazines. So first determine what scene you would like to have as part of your banner, then cut off a rectangle shape from your upcycled Lego Club, Lego Club Jr. Magazines, or Lego books.  Mine measured 5″ wide and 7″ long. Use a paper trimmer to make sure they are cut evenly (optional). Then snip off the bottom left and right corners with your scissors. You will use this one as your guide to cut the rest.

:: STEP 3 ::

Before you tape your first rectangle, make sure you leave extra yarn at the beginning and at the end of the banner for hanging! Using your colored masking tape, cut a piece the width of the top of your rectangle. Tape half of the masking tape over on one side of the rectangle, slide in the yarn, and then fold over the remaining part of the tape. NOTE: Make sure you evenly tape both sides of the rectangle, as it will give it a consistent look throughout your banner! Also, make sure the spacing between each rectangle is even as well!
