The birthday related posts continue today with this little birthday banner.
Honestly, this project made me smile so much. I can't think of anything better (uhhhhhhh...maybe that's not entirely true. Quiet time with a glass full of Veuve would be pretty freakin' fantastic) than staring at adorable baby photos for a few hours.
My banner is pretty simple, but if you have a fancy paper cutter you could do this or this. I bought a $15 Cutter Bee circle cutter that worked just fine. Since I was making two of them (that equals a gazillion circles, folks), it was definitely worth the moo-lah. I started at 'brand new' and continued to gather my favourite photo from each month up to 11.
One piece of advise: if you're stringing them on a ribbon the way I did...tape the ribbon down at the back. Otherwise, you might throw a tantrum over having to repeatedly untwist the ribbon. I may be speaking from experience...
The second banner was made for Rowan's buddy Ryerson, who turned one on Sunday! We had a little party for the boys on the weekend since they were born two weeks apart. I'm thrilled with how efficient those babies are!
Stay tuned for one more birthday-related post this week!
