Birthday Banner

This weekend a friend's husband had a surprise 39 1/2 birthday party for her (he knew she would be expecting one for her 40th, but not for her 39 1/2!)  Two other friends were is charge of coordinating everything, and I was in charge of the cake.  I also offered to make a banner.  I've been wanting to try the paper banners that I've been seeing around blogville.  It takes a little longer than one might think.

I used three different patterns of gray paper.  You can get 3 "triangles" out of each 12 x 12 piece of paper.  My cricut came in very handy for all of the letters and scalloped circles.  I used black & silver glitter papers for the letters, cutting them from the "Storybook" cartridge.  Pink crepe paper was added to the back of the zebra scalloped circles using hot glue.  Hot glue was used again to affix the rosettes to the triangles.  The holes were punched with a 3/4 " hole punch.  The cute ribbon was a find at Hobby Lobby.  The pink crepe rosettes were highlighted with silver and pink glitter...all in all very girly and festive.  Next time I would use a pink scallop circle behind the lettering as the zebra stripes make it difficult to read.
Happy 1/2 Birthday My Friend!!

Don't forget to come back October 3rd thru October 9th for the Pretty Packages Party!
