Personalized Birthday Banner

This year started with a perfect custom order placed by an extremely enthusiastic mother who wanted a very unique party banner for her daughter's first birthday celebration.

Birthday Banner
"Flowers" being the theme of the party, the banner had to be oriented around bright colors, glittered cardstock, layered paper flowers, 3D butterflies and finally a sheer ribbon to hold the pieces together.

Below is a close up look of a circle with the letter "Y" stamped and shaded with Tulip ink. The inner circle was then layered with Studio V handmade rose and a paper flower. Thus giving it that perfect 3D appearance.

The glittered cardstock gave that extra bling that this project demanded. However in spite of using high quality adhesive, it was difficult to sustain the bond between the two circles. Use of a hot glue gun or a stronger adhesive may be a better choice in future to keep these circles together.
