birthday banner

Every birthday party needs a birthday banner
Well here's the one I made!
I got the idea from Holly over here.
But I did do some tweaking.
-I printed my letters out on cardstock (100 pt font)
-cut the circles out
-used Elmer's glue and a small paint brush to apply
glue around the circle, and sprinkled the glitter on top
- I then hot glued the crepe paper to the back,
bunching or overlapping as I went
(there's no science to it, just make it look good!)
- And finished it by hot glueing it to a ribbon
That's it!
here it is a little bit closer
and even closer
It's not perfect up close, but from a foot away you can't see a flaw!
Total Cost: $4
$3 for the glitter
$1 for the crepe paper
and I have leftovers of both!
(I already had the ribbon, and cardstock)

This is the perfect banner for a birthday party
a holiday, a wedding shower,
a baby shower, or a backyard wedding!


  1. Gorgeous! And you're right, it would work so well for other events as well. Great job!

  2. Looks fabulous!

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. So cute....I'm sure the birthday girl loved it!

  4. Wish I can express as you do. What a blog? Can you give the names of websites who are paying for bloggers? I am sure you must be making tons of money. I want to do the same, but in own sweet time. Meanwhile I have worked on my interests and posted some micro-jobs on sell logo design , freelance logo design and www.envato.com. Mostly I have my writing skills on offer. Many have responded. I am happy as anyone can be.
