Follow this tutorial to make a book page pennant banner using pages from an old book and scrapbook paper. This is the perfect upcycle craft for spring!
Spring is fast approaching, which means that I’m on a roll with little DIY decor projects to bring just a bit of color into our home. Since I never shy away from a good upcyle craft project, I decided to use an old book to make a pennant banner. Pastel cardstock makes this an easy spring craft!

Here’s what you will need to make this Book Page Pennant Banner:
- cardstock paper – the 12 x 12 sheets
- an old book
- paper cutter or scissors
- mini hole punch
- an old book
Tutorial: DIY Book Page Pennant Banner
First, cut your cardstock into 8 triangles. It’s super easy to cut one square of cardstock into 8 perfect pennants. Just cut the large square into into 4 smaller squares. Then cut each square in half diagonally. Trim off an edge from each triangle, and you have a pennant.
I don’t bother with meticulous measurements. I’m OK if these aren’t all exactly the same size. Perfection is overrated!
Then cut smaller pennants from old book pages.
Layer the book page on top of the cardstock.
Next, using your mini hole punch, punch holes in each of the two top corners of each pennant. String the twine through the holes to make a pennant banner.
My Banner in Action
I hung my new pennant banner from our DIY chalkboard in the kitchen. I can proudly report back that after 1 whole week, my 4.5-year-old twins have not attempted to take it down to turn into a kite. They were, however, a bit sad that I made this craft without them. Note to self: Next paper banner craft project is going to be a kid-friendly project!
