St. Patrick’s Day Printable Banner

St. Patrick’s Day is almost here and this year I’m featuring a new printable. It is a banner with traditional shamrocks on a white background.  This is a fun decoration for your house, classroom, or as party decorations for that big St. Patrick’s Day Party you’re throwing next Friday.  This banner is around 6 ft. long when strung on the twine.  To make this festive decoration start by printing out the 9 pages, each page contains 2 letters.  Then cut the flags out, punch one hole in both top corners of each letter banner and string them onto a piece of twine or yarn.  

You need to start with the last letter of the banner and work your way backwards as you string the letters on the twine.   Now you have a fun banner to decorate with.  If you want to get creative you can separate the words on smaller banners or use the letters for bulletin boards or signs to show your St. Patrick’s day spirit.  And, if you want another St. Patrick’s Day idea check out my Free Printable St. Patrick’s Day Recipe Card.  Now that your decorations are ready…don’t forget to wear something green!

Ranch and Salsa Wraps

This wrap is perfect as a light lunch, appetizer, or a crowd-pleasing party food. With the big game coming up this Sunday, you will need something to take with you to the party you’re attending.  This wrap is packed full of flavor from everyone’s favorite ranch seasoning, healthy green peppers, and your choice of salsa.  With that much flavor going on, you can’t go wrong.  I used leftover rotisserie chicken in my wraps, which made my prep work very easy.  So let’s mix up the filling, get out the tortillas and start wrapping.

In a bowl mix 1 cup of shredded cooked chicken (if you just cooked the chicken you want to let it cool before putting it in this wrap or use leftover chicken or canned chicken), 1/2 cup of sour cream, 1/2 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup of salsa, 1 chopped green pepper, and 1 (1 oz.) package of dry ranch seasoning.

 

Fill tortillas with a 1/4 of the mixture and then roll them up.

Cut them into five pieces.

Arrange on a platter and refrigerate before and after serving. This recipe makes 21 small wraps.

Now you are ready for the big game with a yummy plate of appetizers.
