DIY Baby Birthday Banner

DIY Baby Birthday Banner

Ok, this DIY is a throwback to a birthday banner I made for my godson Lawson last year.   Not only was it easy, but it was so much fun to make!!  It came out so cute that I made another one for my niece Mallie.

This throwback makes me sad.  Lawson was so much tinier!!  Now he is a big brother.

DIY Birthday Banner – from http://fromdahliastodoxies.blogspot.com/2012/11/baby-birthday-banner-tutorial.html

Things you will need:

  • 8 – 10 sheets of paper with baby faces printed on them (this is a strange statement)
  • 2 white posterboards
  • patterned paper – I used those fun scrapbook papers and bought a different one for each face, so 8 pieces.
  • double stick tape
  • glue stick
  • scissors
  • tissue paper
  • ribbon

For all the dirty details, head on over to the link above, where there are great directions.  One thing I did differently was to use color photos of Lawson, rather than black-and-white.  Also, I didn’t print the pictures on card stock (didn’t have any) – instead, I printed on normal paper and and glued them to a poster board.

Finally, make sure you find pictures of the baby with the funnest expressions, like his tongue sticking out or even ones where he is wearing sunglasses.

Have fun with this project!!  If anything, it’s just fun to go through old pictures of the little one.
