A Banner Day

My daughter's 4th birthday is coming up in June.  We are throwing a spa party for her and a few friends and I have been planning this since the end of February (I am just a little obsessed).  I can't wait to post the finished product...the party is June 11th, so stay tuned.  It's gonna be FABULOUS! 

I decided to make her a cute banner just for her for her special day.  So, the other day, I made this at my kitchen table with stuff that I had already.  I think it turned out really cute!  And, in case you're wondering, there will be a picture under the four, but I had to order the one I wanted in wallet size, so I am waiting for it to get here.

I first cut out the triangles/pennants from white poster board I had laying around for another project.  Then, I added the letters with glitter pens and circle cut some of my favorite pics of my little girl, from birth til now and used mod podge to add them to each pennant.  I then outlined each photo with the glitter pen, just cuz I thought it looked snazzy!  :-)
I took a hole punch and punched two holes at the top of each banner to string the two pieces of yarn through to hang it.  Then, I punched two holes at the bottom of each to add the bows with various colored ribbons that I had. 
I thought they needed one (or two) more details...luckily my husband told me to call it quits, or this may have been one busy banner!  I made little rosettes with leftover felt circles from my wreath I made recently, and then stuck them to the banner with hot glue.
So, there you have it!  Nothing fancy, totally free, but made with love and it will add something special and personal to her spa party!  Like I said, I am slightly obsessed with this party, so you can expect more blogs leading up to the main event in the coming weeks...
