Mya's 7th Birthday Banner


Hi!  I'm back to share with you guys a banner I created for my little girl's 7th birthday party.  It will be hung outside as sort of a marker for her guests, but for right now you are seeing it hung in my hallway, so please excuse the bad lighting.  I took a set of 3 lei necklaces I bought for a dollar at the Dollar Tree and just strung them all into one long string of lei, then attached each banner pennant to it using some thin ribbons.

The base of the banners were cut using an image purchased from the Silhouette Store, cut with my Cameo.  It came in a set of four different banners for 99 cents.   I used the offset feature on the Silhouette Studio to create the shadow.  I used the Ravie font to cut out the letters in the banner, embossed each letter with the Plum Blossom CB folder then used foam mounts to attach each letter to the pennants.  I then added 3 Card Candis to each letter.  I also added more Card Candis to highlight the scallop design on the bottom of each banner.  Below are some close up pictures of the banners.





For one of the pennats, I used my Cricut to cut a doll and its layers from the Everyday Paper Dolls cart and used PK stamps for her face.  The balloon was cut using Celebrate With Flourish cart.  The "7" was from the Disney Pooh Font cart.  Below is a close up of it.


And there you have it!  I so appreciate you stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend!
