Embroidered Spring Banner. Use coordinating supplies from the Amy Tangerine Plus One collection to create a colorful spring banner for your home decor.
I received a super fun box of goodies from the new Amy Tangerine Plus One paper craft collection. The Plus One collection was the top-selling signature line released in the winter of 2014 and actually sold out in most stores and online.
This project is part of a paid marketing campaign with Snap. Although this post is sponsored the project idea and all opinions expressed are my own.
I received so much cute stuff, but my all-time new favorite had to be the teeny tiny mini washi tape!
The great thing about having supplies all from the same line is whatever you make is essentially foolproof. No matter how you put the items together they are going to turn out great because everything coordinates beautifully.
This collection was perfect for my spring decorating. Typically I choose a muted palette of pastels, but this year I want bold and bright.
After taking down all the Christmas decorations the house has seemed a little dull the last few months.
We had a mild winter in Arizona (unlike much of the rest of the country), but it was so dry! Everything is so dead and brown. I am grateful some of my green plants are finally making an appearance again this year.
How to Make an Embroidered Banner
Note: These exact products are no longer available but you can create a very similar look using this Paige Evans Splendid collection. She also has some very cute spring cut files you can use to embroider.
Make Banner Pieces
Start by cutting out your banner pieces (2 1/2″ x 4″). For this banner, you will need (6) six banner pieces.
When cutting out banner pieces by hand, I like to make a template first. I will still use my paper trimmer to cut the rectangle, but the template makes quick work of cutting the notches on the bottom of the banner pieces.
You can also quickly make banner pieces using the banner punch board from We R Memory Keepers.
Next, cut the rectangles to go on the banner pieces. I cut mine to be 2″ x 2 1/2″. Again you will need (6) six pieces.
Using your embroidery kit and additional embroidery thread you will embroider the letters S – P – R – I – N – G onto the rectangles you cut in step two. One letter per rectangle.
These stencils are very easy to use. Simply line up your stencil with your paper and punch holes in the guides with the included punch.
Backstitch using your stencil as a guide as you go.
The stencils have a place to add a coordinating color on the inside of the letter, so I added that as well.
Attach your rectangles to your banner pieces using the adhesive of your choice. Embellish each rectangle with some super tiny washi tape. Isn’t it so fun?

Thread Banner Together
Punch two holes on either side of the top of the banner pieces. Thread your baker’s twine through the holes. Tie a simple knot on each end to keep the banner pieces from falling off.
I am going to hang my banner on the front table that I decorate as my faux mantel. I haven’t added everything to it yet, but I will be sure to show you the completed table when I am finished!
