birthday party banner

I'm hosting the Momenta blog today and I'd love for you to stop by for a visit and leave a comment!

Isabella, who turns 8 on Tuesday, went back and forth about a party theme this year. At one point, she even thought about a basketball party. True to form, she stuck with the girly-girl side of her nature and we are having a PINK PARTY. Big surprise {not} for those that know her.

Happy Sunday! I love creating projects with pretty paper, namely papers from Momenta, where you can even shop online if you don't have a local craft store near you!

This project came together so quickly, thanks to the incredibly versatile Cardstock Mats, which are sized to 5x7. Perfect size for a banner, don't you think? I simply cut into the bottom of the patterned papers to make the pennant pointed. Using the scraps cut from the middle of the 5x7 sheets, I used a punch to make reinforcements where I string my baker's twine through, which you can also see in the photo below.

To make the letters pop and be more noticeable on my banner, I scallop punched coordinating papers, also from the Cardstock Mat pad and used a textured cardstock {in pink} from the Brights Collection for the circle shapes. Those super colorful letters are from the Super Paper Pads, and I used this one.

Using yet another punch, I strung them {threading tip here} onto the baker's twine and made a knot under the flower shape to hold it in place. This is where the double-sided Cardstock Mat papers come in handy...pretty when viewed from the top OR the bottom!

I'll also be sharing the birthday invite, party hat and cupcake favors with you in upcoming posts on the Momenta blog. Stay tuned August 6th, that's when I'll be back with more ideas for your very own PINK PARTY!
