Personalized Banner - baby shower 3

Nothing says party like a personalized banner. And with glitter, well, it is just about party perfection.

Here are all the products that I gathered to use. I omitted the paint and used glue instead.

These chipboard letters are readily available at most craft stores and make the lettering easy. To adhere them to the cardstock I used the pop up dots to make them more dimensional.
The decorative embellishments were labeled as "packaging tape" and was sold in a set of three. See above. The ribbon was in the $1 section.

Mommy-to-be loved it so much she hung it in the nursery. It would also be cute taken apart and to use the back of pieces as the pages to a small memory book of the shower.
This is a fun, easy, affordable decoration. I hope you try one yourself!

Good job Jen. It turned out great. I am glad that you are documenting your crafts and things. You can look back and have your own personal magazine.

I have been saving all of your party ideas and fully intend on blatantly copying them next time I have to help throw a party. You are AMAZING! Seriously, why can't you live closer?

Great idea! I'll have to remember that for whenever I host a baby shower!

How pretty! That takes talent, creativity and time! I bet you were so proud when it was finished, it's so adorable, no wonder why the mom hung it in the nursery, I would have, too! :)

I found you via Thrifty Decor Chick, so nice to meet you!

PS: Heart your flowers on your kitchen sink and your damask blog design :)
