St. Patty's Day Banner

Since it has been a rainy day here in Southern California I have had time to do some decorations done. I wanted to do a banner. Here is the finished product.

I originally wanted to put the banner on my shelf but it ended up being to long so I put it in the entry way. Oh well I think it looks good!

First I picked out two different green cardstock. I used ones that have a shimmer to them. I used my Cricut to cut out balloon shapes.

Then I found two different print papers to use for the letters. I picked these because they went with the solid colors.

Then I guled the letters on to the balloons. After finishing this I hole punched the balloons on each side. I then cut small pieces of white ribbon to tie the balloons together.

Then I tied the balloons together with the ribbon.

That is it. It was really easy to do. I used double sided tape to attach the banner to the wall.

Hope you all like it! Please let me know what you think!


  1. I love it! the paper is so cute and it turned out great! Wonderful job.

  2. Wow. I can't believe it is almost Saint Patty's day! What a great, simple project. I'm your newest follower from frugal Friday's link party. I'm throwing my very first link party tomorrow (Monday). I would love it if you stopped by an added your project.

  3. I came over from Tip Me Tuesday. Cute banner! I think I'm going to make myself a banner for my birtday. Check out my Lucky banner when you get a chance.
