Party Mode Part II: Birthday Banner

The second thing on my list for the party was a Birthday Banner. I wanted something full of the theme colors and full of my baby girl....



1 pack of red plates
1 pack of black plates
1 pack of ribbon(this and all the above from the dollar store)
2 sided tape
Hole puncher

12 months of pictures printed out in black and white from Costco

1. I hole punched 14 plates twice (on each side )evenly in the middle.

2. I connected each plate individually to another plate with the white ribbon and made a knot.

3. I curled each ribbon with the scissors.

4. I cut all the picture into an oval that would fit perfectly on the plates. I made sure there was picture of the Lil lady with her Daddy...

Her Mommy.....

And her Big Brother

5. I used the 2 sided tape to place the pictures on the plates, somewhat in chronological order.

6. I printed Happy Birthday signs out to place on each sides of the banner.

7. I tested out the finished project

I can't wait to see it with the rest of the decorations in 6 weeks, at my Lil Lady's party! Now onto the next project and I can't wait to share it with you next week!
