Baby Shower Banner

Make it Yours @ My Backyard Eden

One of the projects that I did for my sister's baby shower was to make a banner. I got the idea from Dragonfly Designs.  I used my handy dandy Cricut and it made the project SO much easier, but you could do it without.

I started by cutting out triangles out of solid pink paper.  Then I cut a slightly smaller triangle to glued them together.

I used scrapbooking glue stick for this part.  I found that regular glue made the paper wrinkly. 

I like Elmers Extra Strength Glue Stick...the kind that goes on blue and dries clear.  Next, I cut out the letters to spell out 'Welcome Baby Grace' from chocolate brown cardstock.  My sister's naming her baby Grace if you hadn't already figured that out.  Then I glued the letters onto the triangles.

After the letters were attached, I used double sided scrapbooking tape to attach the banner to pink ribbon.  I used the double sided tape just for convenience stuck to the ribbon nicely but it was easy to take the triangles off to realign and adjust. 

And here's a couple of pictures of the final product.  It held up beautifully and looked super cute!!

And a close up from where I hung it in our office so I could see what it looked like.

  1. Very cute! Never thought of using ribbon to string the letters on. Thanks for the instructions, maybe I will attempt to make my own for my next party.
