My Husband’s birthday was the other day and we were heading on a 4 day vacation with some friends so I need a few easy decorations that would pack easily in the suitcase and not take up a lot of room. I talked to my girls and they wanted to make a Birthday Banner for their Daddy. I thought a banner would be perfect and some balloons wouldn’t take up to much room in the suitcase.
Here is what we used:
- Paper cutter
- Paper/ Card Stock
- Lettering…We used the Cricket
- Hole punch
- Glue..glue sticks work great
The first thing we did was use the Cricut, which is a great machine for cutting out letters and great for cutting out intricate things, my daughters love using it!
Then, we cut paper square in two different sizes. We made the smaller square about 1/4 inch smaller than the larger square.
Next, we glued the smaller square to the larger square and glue the letter in the middle of the squares. We also used a hole punch to add two holes about 1 inch apart.
Now, tread your ribbon through the holes connecting all the squares you just created.
You now have a finished Birthday Banner! We placed the banner over the slider door to the patio of our Villa and added a few balloons to create a fun party decoration.
The banner was extremely easy to make! All you need to do is figure out a color scheme, choose a color or a few from it and you will have easy quick party decorations. Our color scheme came from these napkins we used while serving the cake.
Happy Birthday BayBay.. I love you more than words can express!!
