Project: day 94: crafty kiddo/ diy printable happy birthday banner for Hayden’s 7th birthday spa/sleepover!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 2. Hayden wanted to help with all of her birthday plans this year, so she was a great helper!
• Would I do it again? yes! Hayden picked out the color scheme of this banner, but you could easily switch it up for a boy, or any other party colors
• What I would do differently: use a circle cutter or any other better tool other than scissors and craft wave scissors! A touch difficult, but it still turned out ok!
• Items used: adorable banner idea from:
craft paper by Recollections (Michael’s),card-stock (Michael’s)

Until ipinterest tomorrow!

  1. cool idea! i think i’m going to make an easter one for my mantle. thanks for the pinspiration!! =)
    i was wondering, though, what was your exact process? did you cut out the circles and then place the letters on or did you place the letters on and then cut out the circle around it? and is your backing a full piece or is it just an “outline”? one last one, did you sew the ribbon to the circles or did you cut holes and run ithe ribbon through? sorry for all the questions!

    • Thanks for the questions, happy to answer 🙂
      My daughter and I first printed out the happy birthday letters onto scrapbook paper (I had to cut it to 8×10 to tit my printer though), then we took black card stock and drew and cut circles just using a cake pan (I don’t have any of the fancy cutting machines yet, but it worked!). Next, we used a bowl smaller than the black circles to cut the scrapbook paper, which had the letters on them. We finished off those letter circles with craft scissors which had a wave to it.
      Last, we glued the scrapbook letter paper onto the black circles, hole punched each side, and then wove the ribbon in and out.
      I hope that was clear enough! I really didn’t know what I was doing (it was my first one)… and kind of just made it up as we were going, but it seemed to work!
      Thanks for checking it out!! I think I might try an Easter one as well, it really was pretty simple!

  2. I’m wondering the same sorts of things as peasquared. I want to make a banner of pennants for my son’s room like one I saw in the Land of Nod catalog. I was planning to use solid felt triangles attached to colored cord or ribbon. How did you attach your banners to the ribbon?

    • Hi! I love the one from Land of Nod, and thought about doing something like that as well. We hold punched our card-stock and then wove the ribbon thorough, but I’m not sure if that would work for felt. I would imagine if you hot glued the pennants to a big enough ribbon, that it would stay, but I’m not sure. I will definitely let you know if I try it though! Hope that helps, but check out the response to Pea Squared as well 🙂
      THanks for checking it out!
