Birthday Banner

Sometime this Spring I decided I was going to scrap the ghetto birthday banner I grabbed on a whim at the commissary before Abby turned one and replace it with a much chicer, personalized model.

I hunted for paper in Wenatchee, then spent some of my down in Ohio tracing an Olive Garden coaster & cutting out the pieces. After that I took it to Minnesota where I did all of the Mod Podging (that's a fancy phrase for super-strong glue). Then it was back to Ohio where I printed pictures of the girls on their birthdays to use as end caps, and tied all of the circles together with ribbon. This banner is as well-traveled as the girls are, and finally, it is ready and waiting for their birthdays!
