the birthday fun continues | hosting at Momenta

After sharing the birthday banner with you the other day, I wanted to continue along with the birthday theme today and share Isabella's party invitation, too.

I used the same Paper Pad and Textured Cardstock to make the invite. I used several different punches to adorn the envelope and the top of the invitation. In the photo above you can see a close up of all the fun glittered stripes in this appropriate for my girly girl!

I'm a new designer with Momenta {and enjoying every paper crafting minute of it, too} and you can view the rest of my posts for Momenta here. If you haven't yet, we invite you to follow the blog - it's over there in their sidebar - so that you don't miss a single post or special announcement! We'd love to have you as part of our gang of Momenta brand paper lovers!

And if you don't mind, let me show you what I did to the cupcakes I took to Isabella's school for snack time on her birthday, which also happened to be the first day of school. Big day for my 3rd grader, don't you think?

I used a paper from the Family Outings line to show a more masculine side of this idea...Zach would have been mortified to have had pink cupcake banners. And that cute tag {below} I made for the cupcake holder is made from the same Paper Pad.

Here are the steps to take to make your flag banners:

cut strips of patterned paper to desired width
apply adhesive
place toothpick on paper strip
fold paper strip in half around the toothpick
turn flag over and trim to a pointed shape
insert newly created flag into scrumptious cupcake


  1. very those cupcake flags..

  2. I'm going to start calling you Martha!
    This is beyond FABULOUS!
    Thank you for sharing and I hope Isabella has a terrific year <3

  3. Soooo super cute. Must try and make some. TFS the tutorial. :)
