Give Thanks Banner-Free Printable

I thought some of you would be interested in a free printable for the banner hanging on my mantel. 
It is super easy to make. I made mine in about 20 minutes and if you're like me you have all the supplies on hand, making this a free project. 

Step One- print the letters: click on the links below and print

*make sure you print the letters on the landscape paper setting.


I printed on brown paper but you could use off white, orange, yellow, or what ever you have that you think will look good. 

Step Two - cut out your letters. I left a small border. 

Step Three - cut slits in the top corners. You could also use a hole punch. 

 Step Four - Thread your ribbon through the openings. 

That's it, you're ready to hang and enjoy.

Let me know if you have any problems or questions.

Amy said...

has anyone made this yet? I cannot get it to print! My printer feeds the paper through, but no ink on paper. Checked ink cart. and it is full. Did I not download the file correctly? help!

Kalleen at Second Street said...

Amy, I'm not sure what is happening. I know a few people have been able to print successfully. If it shows up in your print preview correctly it should print. I'm not the best with computers, I wish I could help more. Good Luck.

laura D said...

thanks for sharing..

Beans said...

Hi - Over here in New Zealand we don't have thanksgiving but I would love to use this banner for Christmas - could you possibly divulge what font you used? H

Kalleen at Second Street said...

Hey Beans I used the JFRingmaster font from this site
http://www.noupe.com/fonts/45-outstanding-free-vintage-fonts.html
good luck.

I've had such a good response from this banner, I'm pretty sure I'll be making a free printable for Christams too.

Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia said...

Thank you so much for this, your banner is adorable!
I made a little project with the letters, I'll post about it tomorrow.
Thank You!

I Printed mine on a copper-ish scrapbook paper from Michaels and my Husband loves it so much he said we'll use it year after year. I also received several compliments on FB for it too!

THANKS!

This article was extremely interesting, especially since I was searching for thoughts on this subject last Thursday.

Annie said...

I LOVED this banner!!! Here's what mine looked like: http://arlingtonmama.blogspot.com/2010/11/give-thanks-banner.html

The only problem now is that I really want one for Christmas *hint-hint*. ;)

Thanks, again. It was beautiful. My hubby even loved it!

Shannon said...

I was hoping to print out your lovely banner on alternating colors of paper, but would need the letters in different combinations. In other words, I'd like to print the G and H on the same paper. Is there a way to either print each letter individually or to mix up the order? I am not at all computer savvy and have been working on this for the better part of an hour now. I love your banner as is, I am just trying to use some cardstock that I already have on hand. Thanks so much!!!

Jenny @ Simcoe Street said...

Featuring this on my blog today! Love it!

I saw your banner on Pinterest and it linked me here to your blog. I am a new follower. I wanted to let you know that I will be posting a blog about my fall decorations and I made your Give Thanks banner. I will include a link to your site and give you all the credit. I'm new to the blogging world and I am not sure of all the courtesies but I hope that this is enough. Thank you for sharing your sweet ideas.
Sincerely,
Rhonda

Kristin Brannan Wilson said...

I have a dumb question...how big is each letter? I can get it to print but I'm not sure, but it seems smaller than it appears in the picture.

STUFFellaneous said...

Thank you very much! I'm just finishing up mine. Love it!!!

Lindsay and Robert said...

I'm usually not very "crafty", but Pinterest has inspired me and I fell in love with your banner when I saw someone had pinned it. I immediately printed it, and it makes me smile every time I walk by my festive mantle. Thanks for sharing this one!

Twigs and Twirls said...

I have been drooling over this banner for a year. Yes a year. I saved it, pinned it ,and whatever else I could. It will be a perfect addition to my Thanksgiving Mantle. Thank you for sharing.

This is pretty random, but I bought the Thanksgiving blocks (with the vintage images sticking up) that is on top of your mantle at a thrift store. But 2 letters are missing. Would it be possible if I found out which letters that you could take a picture of yours and send me the photo and I could possibly print it out and paste over some blocks to complete my set? Sorry if this is random. Thanks for your help!

Unknown said...

Love this banner!! I especially love the vintage blocks on your mantel. Can you let me know where I can buy some too?

They inspire conversation, further blog posts, deeper thought, etc. Notwithstanding, I do not think a blogger can build a business around them. Vinyl Banners

Crystal said...

Just wondering if there has been any recent trouble for readers trying to open & print the letters? Every one of the links sent me to the Google Drive website?? Would love to print these...thanks for any help!

mary said...

i cannot print these banners with out them being 1 inch by 1 inch. what can I do?????

Scrappy Sugar Girl said...

I printed these out last year without a hitch and now something has happened. I am having printer problems too. After I download it goes to some google page and only half a letter is on each page. I wish I had saved them last year. Boo hoo!
Google sucks eggs sometimes.

Cassie G. said...

Is there a way to email me the files for the Give Thanks letters? Google is not fully downloading them, so I am unable to print the full size. Cassie.Greenway@gmail.com

Lorelei said...

Thanks for the printable! I downloaded each doc, opened the picture file, clicked print, and clicked the box "Fit picture to frame". It went off with out a hitch. Now I just have to cut them out. Lol.

My name is Rita said...

Thanks so much for the printable! I downloaded each page and then printed them. Worked perfectly.

Lyann said...

Thank you for such a great print out! I will be using it for our Airstream Thanksgiving.

How do you enlarge the letters? When I printed from your link, it printed the letters about 2 x 2 inches. I don't see any way to edit them and resize. Thank you.

Susan N. said...

I can't get this banner to print from Goggle docs. Can you send it to me as a pdf attachement. My email address is nafziger@mtelco.net
