View File to PrintThis darling felt pennant was made by Angie at the Beaverton store. How cute would this be for a party or in a kids room?

Angie used the 5″ x 8″ Chipboard Pennant set from Paper Accents. In the package you get 9 chipboard pennants. She painted the pennants white and then used our wool felt squares to cut out the face elements for each little animal. We  have a template in the project sheet for all of these pieces.
