Lucky Banner Tutorial

All right, onto another St. Patrick's Day goodie. I started this banner weeks ago- Feb 15th to be exact- but I have had the hardest time finishing it and getting a tutorial up- but here it is finally. We have a huge window in our living room that I refuse to buy or make curtains for because we're renting anyways I like to make a banner to hang over this window for holidays birthdays etc to spice it up a little.I started by cutting circles on my handy cricut, I used 5.5"5" and 4.5". Then I inked the edges of the white cardstock with green ink. After that I pulled out my handy foam stamps and stamped "LUCKY", I waited to glue everything together until after I stamped- that way if anything get messed up I am only out one circle instead of three.
Modge Podge them all together.
Now, my favorite part. I traced a shamrock in pencil then stamped the word lucky over and over to form a shamrock.
Then I laid it all out on the floor and pinned my banner to the ribbon so sewing would be easier.
All done!



Cute! I don't have a cricut but may have to get one. I always wondered how everyone gets such perfect circles.
