Many of you may know that we just got done celebrating my daughter’s 1st birthday. It was a blue and pink themed party with LOTS of DIY party decorations (did you really expect me to pay lots of $$ for it all considering how cheap I am?)! One of the things I made was this DIY birthday banner  to go on the DIY party backdrop. The banner was super simple to make and turned out really cute!

DIY Birthday Banner

Materials Needed:
•Scrapbook Paper or Cardstock (I got about two “flags” out of a 12×12 piece of scrapbook paper. I got all my paper at Hobby Lobby.)
Banner Template (found here)
•Adhesive Mounts of some sort (I used these)
X-Acto Knife
•Ribbon (I used this kind)

I know I took pictures of this process, but it appears, I have deleted those photos! I am so sorry, but I promise, this is so easy you really don’t need photos.

Step 1:

Print out the banner template found here at Miss Lovie Creations. She did a great job of making her DIY birthday banner and I did mine very similar to hers.

Step 2:

Cut out the template. I used regular scissors for this.

Step 3:
Place the banner template over  the back of your scrapbook paper or card stock and trace it with a pencil. Trace as many as you will need.

Step 4:

Cut out the traced pieces. I used scissors for this as well, but you could use the X-Acto knife.

Step 5:

Place the circle template over scrapbook paper or card stock. Trace as many circles as letters you need. I chose to use just blue and pink solid card stock for this so that my letters didn’t disappear on patterned paper.

    Your banner is so incredible awesome. Couldn’t think of better words for how it looks. You did such a great job. It’ll be nice when she gets older so you can show her pics of her b/d party and the wonderful banner her Momma made for her party.
    Love her name, so pretty and different. Love your blog gal.

    Thank you for the great ideas and how to steps. I made the birthday backdrop, Pom poms and banner (changed from the bunting style) and it looked amazing at my daughters first birthday party.
