Hello everyone! Today I have a super fun project to share with you. It's my sweet friend Christine's birthday today and I made this super fun birthday banner for her to hang in her office at work. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY FRIEND!!! I hope you have a GREAT day!
Don't you just love it??? It's so bright and colorful . . . how can you not smile?!? Even though I am showing it to you in two pictures, it's actually one long banner. The ribbon connecting it all together is my favorite Celebrate It ~ 360 ribbon. I used some jump rings to hang all the tags from the ribbon. You can usually find those in the jewelry section of your craft store.
All of the banner pieces are made with the My Creative Time ~ Tag Dies. Aren't they fabulous? They are PERFECT for making banners! The "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" letters are all cut from the Don Juan ~ Cricut Cartridge. And I used some pop dots underneath all the letters to give them dimension and help them pop off the banner pieces. Most of embellishments are stickers from Jolee's Boutique. And the cute little flowers are from an old company (that I don't think is in business anymore) called The Card Co.
All of the papers are from the Coredinations ~ Vintage Collection. If you look at the black "BIRTHDAY" letters, you can see what the front side of the paper looks like. In order to create a more subdued look for all the colors, I used the back side of all the color pieces. That way I could still have the color, but it wouldn't be too bright AND the black letters would stand out better (not to mention that the back side of all the banner pieces will look fabulous!!).
Here are all the close up shots:
Now are you ready for the best part???
I found the PERFECT Michael's gift card to go with it!!! I have this hanging in between the "HAPPY" and the "BIRTHDAY". Isn't it just great?!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY SWEET FRIEND!!! And if you all have an extra moment . . . please head on over to Christine's blog and leave her some Happy Birthday Love.
Have a great day everyone! I will see you all again soon.
