Because I'm not a fanatic about St. Patty's Day, I really didn't want to spend a dime on decorating for it. I used left over alphabet stickers and scrapbook paper from this project, and left over glitter paper from this project. I was all set to create cuteness on a budget. And, I did it all while watching Sunday Morning
What You'll Need
Puffy foam mounting stickers
Pencil and Green marker
Paper cutter (optional)
Tiny hole punch (optional)
What You'll Do
|Cut one scrapbook paper a little taller than your tallest letter sticker.|
|Mark a line across the middle of the cut paper on the backside. Mark the center of the paper and draw a diagonal line from the paper's center mark to the center line. Cut along the lines.|
|Stick letter in center of cut pennant to spell out your word or phrase. I chose "Lucky Me".|
|Cut the coordinating scrapbook paper and cut slightly taller than the pennant piece.|
Take the foam sticker place holder and sandwich it between both scrapbook papers to add dimension.
|Hole punch pennant and double thread your needle. Start by threading a pompom onto the thread, then alternate between each pennant letter and a pompom for the word "LUCKY".|
|Color the clothespins with green marker.|
What You'll Need to Know to Finish
Hang the "LUCKY" pennant. After drying, attach the "M" and "E" pennant to the bottom of the "C" pennant.
I hung my pennant against a mirror and was bothered that I could see the wording of the paper behind one of the pennants. To remedy this compulsive side of my character, I glued a cut-to-size scrapbook piece to the backside of the culprit. Problem solved!
So go ahead and take a little time to work on this wee project. You'll feel lucky!
