Authentique Clover St. Patrick’s Day Banner with Eileen Hull House Die

Hello, Friends!  It’s time to get ready for St. Patrick’s Day!  I’m here to help get the party started with a gloriously green Authentique Clover St. Patrick’s Day Banner.

This banner is so happy, it makes me want to dance a jig!  And, it’s easy to make, too, thanks to Eileen Hull’s House/Pocket  Thinlits Die!  (This is a tip I learned from my scrappy buddy, Maggi Harding.)

Measuring over 3 feet in length, the banner is made with 2 different sized pennants.  The 3 large pennants are made with Eileen’s House Die.  Turning it upside down gives it a great banner shape!  Each of these pennants measures about 4″ x 6″.

The 4 smaller pennants each measure about 2 1/2″ x 3″.  These are die cut from the Kelly Green cardstock that comes with the Clover collection.  I simply selected a shaped label die that I like to create these.

A second layer of designer paper is cut with the hemstitch pocket die that come in the House/Pocket die set.  Top this with a doily, add an image fussy cut from the 3″ x 4″ cards, toss in some flowers, vintage buttons and stick pins, and you’ve got yourself a mighty fine banner.

Authentique Clover St. Patrick’s Day Banner Tips and Tricks

TIP: Pop the fussy cut focal image up on pop dots, foam tape or waste chipboard to add dimension to your banner.

Each pennant is stitched onto 1 1/2″ wide Emerald Plaid Ribbon.

TIP: Use binder clips to hold the pennants in place on your ribbon.  Then stitch along  both the top and bottom edge of the ribbon.  This will ensure that the banner hangs flat.

TIP: If you’d rather not stitch, you can always attach the pennants with clothespins or colorful bulldog clips.

TIP:  Tie bows between each pennant.  For this banner, I’ve used Forest Green Taffeta Ribbon.  First tie a long piece in a square knot.  Then tie a double loop bow and adhere it on top.

    Your banners have always been a favourite of mine. Great job. This will be the first St. Patrick’s day without my Stan, this would have been his 15th birthday. Oh and I just found all my great photo’s of him to put in that lovely folio that you sent me. Yes I know, it took a long time, but if you saw my place you would totally understand. lol

    Kathy, what a beautiful banner! I am really liking the banners for home decor. Turning that house die upside down is such a great idea! These Authentique papers and images are so joyful and of course your accents with the bows and buttons, and flowers are just perfect! I hope you will consider doing an Easter banner as well. Thank you for sharing this darling project! Hugs!
