Free Train Printable Happy Birthday Banner

This Free Train Printable Happy Birthday Banner is such an easy craft for making DIY railway themed party banners. Its a great one to print off and easily cut out, for ready made party decorations and all you need is a printer, white card and string.

My free printable train alphabet and number set has been so popular. But it made me realise that not everybody has a cutting machine. Or the inclination to spend hours crafting. An alien concept to me, as I spend all of my days crafting. However I also accept we all have different priorities, jobs and time. Not everyone want to spend hours crafting.

So this printable, train, happy birthday banner is for you lovelies. Its a super easy project that takes no time at all and looks amazing.

How to personalise your happy birthday train banner

Print Your Happy Birthday Train Flags For Your Banner

Start by opening the files, and putting A4 card 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 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 train 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.

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.

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 banner is cut I have marked out where the holes go with coloured dots, simply use a hole punch or silent setter to create holes to thread string through.

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.
