I'm making a banner for my little guy's big boy room using maps from an old atlas. 

I starting cutting out the triangles yesterday and today I picked up some ribbon but I'm having a hard time deciding which I prefer...

the green which is kind of a woven cotton, like a shoelace almost.

I like it because it is soft and might do a better job of hanging smoothly...

BUT  these stripes in a class grosgrain are pretty fun

There is a smidge of pink in there.  Probably not generally welcome in a big boy room but I have confidence that our little man is man enough for pink.

What do you think???


  1. I prefer the stripes. They add a bit of whimsy. Great project!

  2. What a fun idea! Think I'm leaning toward the stripes. I like how you're alternating all land and water triangles!

  3. Cute! And what I love the idea of using an old atlas. I would go with the stripes. They are more fun and from a distance you can't really tell that there is any pink in it.

  4. I think you can go with either ribbon and it would look great! Love the maps!
    Can't wait to see what you pick!
