OMG, me too, but it felt like it would have been so easy, I’ve been too embarassed to ask.  I hope someone has an answer!

I would try printing it each letter with a border on a piece of cardstock, then hole punch two holes on the top and weave ribbon through it to make a banner?  Just a quick guess, but it seems easy enough!  I’m looking for a similar font/border.  I’ll let you know if I find it! 🙂

You just need to find the right font.  The border around the letters might be harder to find.  This font kind of resembles it, but you could probably find a closer match on that site. 

So, download the font and install it on your machine (if you don’t know how to do that google it for your operating system, because all operating systems are different), then type out whatever you want in big letters nicely spaced out, cut the letters out individually and hang them on a ribbon.  You could always go to Michael’s or another craft store and buy those paper frames that people use for scrapbooking to frame the letters, which I think would look even cooler then have it printed directly on the paper, or start googling something like “decorative frames” until you find something you like and put that around the different letters before printing.

Hope this helps!

I made a very simply diy banner like this (except triangular letters) with craft paper.  I just cut triangles out of colored paper and wrote in big black sharpie marker “nearlyweds”.  it was for our rehearsal dinner.  I found a way to tape them (yes regular old scotch tape) to a simple piece of curling/wrapping paper ribbon.  It probably wasn’t as nice as this one but did the job!

For this exact thing I would go to word. In page layout I would add a page border.  You can pick an “art” one or just a simple line style.  There are some cute zig zag styles that I like.  Most of the art ones are cheesy but some towards the bottom of the list that look promising.  Either add this to the whole page or top and bottom.
Then find a font you like and print one per page!

the hole punch idea looks great!  just tape or glue the ribbon to each letter card so they don’t all bunch at the bottom.
