I made a St. Patrick’s Day Banner! I’ve never made a real St. Patrick’s Day craft, so this banner is my first one. You are all probably familiar with my banner obsession, so I apologize, but what can I say?! I love them.

This is how it turned myย St Patrick’s Day Banner turned out:

MY OTHER RECIPES

I didn’t want to show my entire mantel just yet (it’s not 100% ready) so I apologize for no full-on view of it. This banner was completely inspired by a banner I featured last year from Rebecca Cooper.

1. Begin by tracing a banner shape onto your paper. For my paper I found these vintage pics of Ireland Maps. I downloaded them (by clicking on the image, clicking again and then right-clicking and saving) and inserted them into word making them the full size of the paper. From there, I printed them out (in B&W) and then traced the banner onto the back so 2 fit onto each sheet.

2. Cut out banner shapes. Set aside.

3. Cut out hearts from cardstock. I made one pattern, traced it on to to the paper and then cut them out. I also distressed them with an ink pad for embellishment.

I really like the way you kept this edited….not too much “blarney”…that’s why I really like this. I don’t like when too much is added. I’m inspired! Shari
