Simple St. Patrick’s Day Banner

This simple St. Patrick’s Day craft is the first of many book page buntings I’ve made through the years for nearly every holiday. This one was originally created in 2011 and is still one of my favourite crafts. It’s easy to put together, uses supplies that are readily available and I love how it looks displayed! Scroll down for a full tutorial and check out my other book page buntings here.
What you’ll need to make your own St. Patrick’s Day Bunting:
Some string
A stapler
A few buttons
Green cardstock
Gluestick or other type of adhesive
Some pages from an old book
Here’s how you’ll put it together:
1. Using your book pages cut out 5 or more rectangles approximately 3.5″ x 6″ in size.
2. Cut a triangle shape out of the bottom of your rectangles. Hint: From left to right, find the center of your rectangle then measure 1 3/4 ” from the bottom to find where the top point of your triangle will be.
3. Cut out the number of shamrocks you’ll need from green cardstock. I used the stained glass image HERE as my template.
4.  Attach shamrock’s to your banner pieces being sure to allow enough room to fold over the top edges. Place a button in the center of each shamrock.
5. Now you’re ready to put your banner together. Simply cut your length of string and attach banner pieces to string by folding top edge of banner pieces over the string & staple. Space banner pieces evenly along the string by sliding them back and forth as needed.
6. Now hang that cutie up somewhere and enjoy your new {oh so simple}St. Patty’s Day decor!
