April Banner of the Month Tutorial with Graphic 45 Time to Flourish and Reneabouquets
Hello, Friends! It’s Throwback Thursday, and I’m here with our April Banner of the Month Tutorial. We started this through the year series with our February Banner, then last month we got our March Banner made. Now it’s time to get ready for Easter with tulips, chicks, butterflies and spring flowers.
Even if there’s still snow in your part of the world (I’m truly sorry if that is the case) this sweet banner will make it feel like springtime inside your home. I thought about Easter eggs when I was choosing the color palette for this banner. It reminds me so much of the old Pas Easter Egg dying kits I had when I was a kid.
TIP #1: Choose a wide (1 1/2″) ribbon and fold it over the tops of the banner pennants. Then top it with some beautiful white crochet lace. Hold the layers together with binder clips as you stitch across the top. Then turn the banner and stitch along the bottom edge of the lace to make everything nice and secure.

TIP #2 : Combine fussy cut images from the 12×12 papers with die cut layers, flowers, butterflies and little tags. Pop individual layers up with foam tabs or waste chipboard to add extra dimension.
TIP #3: Reneabouquets Printed Beautiful board is a perfect color match with this paper collection.
TIP #4: Mix and match pastel spring flowers to achieve that Easter Egg Basket or Jelly Bean color palette. It’s a great way to use up leftover flowers from previous projects.
TIP #5: Tie Baker’s Twine bows between each pennant and top with a vintage style button
TIP #6: Cover Ivory ATC tags with the G45 ATC Tag Die, then hang vintage keys and enamel flowers from the grommet on the bottom for extra fun.
