Baby's Birthday Banner

Hi, Friends!

This weekend, I had a lot of fun in the Paper Jungle. First, I scored major hauls via a surprise grab box full of goodies from a fellow crafter, Laura Vegas, and then I got another lot of incredible goodies at a scrapbook tag sale.  The tag sale was held not far from my home, and was coordinated by Ann Palmer, a Facebook friend.  

On Sunday, DD Emily came over with her family, including the CUTEST granddaughter in the world, Charlotte.  When Charley napped, Em and I bonded over glue and Glossy Accents, making an adorable banner for Charlotte's upcoming birthday party.  It's for her high chair:

Since Charley's a December baby, Emily picked Winter Igloo for the theme of Charlotte's 1st birthday party.


Here is more detail on the individual featured pennants:

Each pennant was cut 6" wide by 9" high. This one was cut from hot pink glitter stock by American Crafts and lined with a piece of upcycled cereal box cardboard.  I handcut the scalloped edge from thick American Craft glitter chipboard (on hand). The snowflake was cut using a Sizzix die; the #1 was cut using Cricut's Plantin Schoolbook cartridge, and glimmered using Ranger's Stickles. Eyelets from Eyelets Outlet were set using my Crop-A-Dile Big Bite.

The penguin was cut using Cricut's Christmas Cheer cartridge. His hat was cut using the Birthday Bash cartridge, then Stickled and piled high with Glossy Accents. 

The snowman was cut using Cricut's Doodlecharms cartridge, and his hat was fussy-cut by CardMonkey!  His belly buttons are actually buttons, his mouth is made from small adhesive black beads. Both critters have googly eyes. 

I still can't believe my grandbaby will be one in just a few weeks ... Where has this time gone?  Isn't she simply adorable??!
