Hello friends! I had fun putting together this mini but Tall Happy Birthday Banner! The letters have dimensions to really stand out. Twine and buttons add charm!
Cut Letters and Tags in the Birthday Banner
From aqua cardstock, cut 13 tags. (Approximately 5/8 x 3 1/8 inches)
Cut a piece of blue cardstock large enough for all the letters to be die-cut on. Next, cut a piece of 3D Foam Creative Sheets Medium White the same size. Remove liner from it and place the cardstock on it. Then, use alphabet dies and die-cutting machine to cut letters for “HAPPY BIRTHDAY”.
Fasten Letters to Tags
Peel the liner from the back of each letter and secure each to a tag. Use a ruler to help align letters to keep them evenly spaced from the bottom of each tag.
Attach Tags to String
Score each tag at 1/2 and 5/8 inches from the top. Bend tag on score lines.
Place a small Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix at folded end of each tag.
Cut four pieces of twine about 24-30 inches long (better too long than too short). Put two pieces together for each word banner.
Place twine along the fold of a tag. Remove liner from Thin 3D Foam Square and fold the top of tag over twine and press to firmly attach. Repeat for the other banner (“HAPPY” letter tags).
Cut short pieces of twine and tie between each letter tag. Trim ends.
Apply Adhesive Dots Medium to the back of each button. Layout buttons in color arrangement. Peel the liner from a button and place it at top of the tag. Repeat for all tags.
I really like how this banner turned out especially how the white of the 3D Creative Sheet shows on the sides of the letters. It will be perfect for a special one-year-old’s birthday party today!
Thanks for Visiting!
