Happy Birthday!

Today is my mother-in-law's birthday. (depending on when you're reading this, it's the 17th) Happy Birthday, Jeanne!

It seems only appropriate to have a craft that is birthday themed. It's a "Happy Birthday" banner and it's not hard AT ALL.
I made this banner about 2 years ago for one of my best friend's birthday. Instead of hanging the old generic foil looking banner, I decided to make one with a wider range of colors. All you need is some scrapbook paper and a printer. I found different fonts for each letter and increased the font quite a bit. Some fonts required more increasing than others. After you print the letters, connect them with some yarn and tape. Tada! Here's what the banner looks like all piled up together. I wanted to show a close up of some of the patterned paper. The "a" didn't quite show up on the above picture.

*Random fact about me: My favorite part of Disney's Cinderella is when Gus (the chubby mouse) shouts, "Ha-ha-ha-happy birfday!" instead of "Surprise". He sounds so cute and proud. Does anyone else remember that cute line?


  1. love Gus, he's adorable. My sister and I can act out that movie from beginning to end.
