Print Your Blue Happy Birthday Banner
Start by opening the free birthday banner files, and putting A4 cardstock into your printer. Also note that card will look better than paper, although you can use paper too. You now have several options.
You can open each file and send each Happy Birthday flag to print. The files are sized to print at 5.2 x 6.5 inches, which is the perfect size for an easy printable banner. Remember you will also need the print off 2 copies or the letters H, A,P and Y. Also make sure your printer is not set to 2 sided printing. If it is, turn it off.
Or alternatively, if you want your Birthday banner flags to be a different size? I have provided the banner in PNG file format, these will open in Word, Pages and the free version of Canva. Simply import or upload and size to the size you would like to print, ensuring they are all the same size before sending to print.
I suggest checking your printer preferences are set to fine quality or high resolution for a better print result.
Alternatively upload to Cricut as print and cut files and you Cricut Machine will print and cut the project for you. I have a full post on how to use Cricut Print and Cut if you are new to Cricut.
Cut Out Your Birthday Banner
Next use a guillotine to cut out the edges off your banner. And use a pair of scissors to cut out the V area of the banner flag.
If you have a Cricut send to cut making sure you load the flag into your Cricut the same way as it appears on your screen.
Make Holes To Hang The Banner
Once your Birthday banner is cut I have marked out where the holes go with coloured dots in the top corners, simply use a hole punch or silent setter to create holes to thread string through.
Hang The Banner
Lastly thread the string through the banner. I thread from the front the the back of the first hole. This way the string threads along the back of the flag and your happy birthday banner looks neater.
