My Latest Project!

I was wanting to make a birthday banner and never actually saw one in person, so I was leary. Well we went to Avery's friend's party on Saturday and it confirmed that I wanted to make one. She made her daughter's in a Mickey Mouse theme and it was adorable. So I set out to Hobby Lobby and got all my supplies (Just cardstock and scrapbook paper) And I made this last night in about 2 hours. It took a little long because I printed the outline letter and colored them in so we didn't use as much ink...

 Avery's having a princess theme this year, but I wanted something that I could use year after year, so I just did girly! And I think it's ADORABLE!

I already had the ribbon, but a spool of ribbon is about $3, so the Average person can make this for about $8, I did it for $5 as I had NO paper supplies. I think that's a good deal. To know that people sell these for $15-$20 I might start selling them :)
I was going to dress it up with ribbon in between the letters, but I didn't have enough that corresponded and I think it would've been too busy anyway!

So what do you guys think? I can't believe her party is in 2 1/2 weeks!!
