Good Monday everyone. Today I wanted to share with you a "Happy Birthday" banner I made to sell at my booth earlier this year. I made it for a girl, but kept it very general. I didn't want to do any themes because you never know what people are looking for. I really like how it turned out. In person you can really see all the different colors and patterns better and the sparkle from the glitter looks better too!
I used the Pretty Pennants cartridge for the banner shape.
The patterned paper is from an old Imaginisce glitter paper pad, so it all coordinates together. I used a brown cardstock for my solid base.
I used an EK success scalloped circle punch for the scalloped circles, then I used a 1.5" circle punch from Creative Memories for the inside circle. The cupcakes are from a Stampin' Up stamp set, stamped on different colors of paper and then pieced together. I added stickles to the cupcakes for some sparkle.
The letters were cut out of an old sizzix sidekick alphabet and layered on brown cardstock, and then covered with pink stickles. I used some eyelets to strengthen the corners and then tied it together with some bakers twine.
Thanks for visiting my blog today, I hope you liked my project and come back to see more!
let me know what you think!
