Now that we have the base of the banner complete, its time to add the words. I’m spelling out “Congrats” but feel free to spell anything you’d like. Remember you’ll need to do one letter at a time. Type out all the letters, choose a font, I used Impact, and give them a fill color. Place a letter on the banner to figure out the font size. Before moving forward, now is a good time to make all the letters the same size, I forgot to do this and had to eyeball it later.
This next step is only necessary depending on the font you choose and the look you want. Since this is being cut out of paper, the center of the letters like A, O, R, and such will fall out. This is the trick I use to keep the center of the letters in place. Draw a thin rectangle and place it over the letter to connect the center to the outside of the banner.
