St Patrick''s Day Banner

 So they say everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day- and I think it is true!  I know that every year, on St. Patrick's Day, when my girls' were growing up,  we found that a leprechaun had visited during the night, and turned all the milk in our house green!  And one year he left a batter to make green pancakes!  So fun!   I miss those days! 





My project today is a super quick, cute banner for St. Patrick's Day.  

Here's a quick "how to" - I started with Fancy Foil Gold Vellum and my Big Shot - and cut out  5 banner shapes.  I also did this with crumb cake card stock using the next larger banner shape.  (note- if you don't have a Big Shot or these framelits, you can easily create this shape and hand cut them for the base of the banner - but you know what I say - "every home should have a Big Shot!" lol!) 



 I used the Sweetheart Punch and Garden Green cardstock and punched 15 hearts - three for each shamrock. 








I used my snail to attach the Gold Vellum banner shapes to the crumb cake cardstock - and put the adhesive where I knew it would be covered with the shamrocks. 

I added a bit of gold - using the 7/8 inch scallop circle punch and  Champagne glimmer paper.   






 To finish the banner, I simply punched holes along the top - and threaded Gold Bakers Twine throughout.  



I used small clothespins to attach my banner to this cute basket in my studio, The Bee Spot - for a little St. Patrick's Day display! 







Quick, easy and cute!  Below are the products used in my banner-
