Designer Craft Connection - Party Decorations

Whether it be a birthday, anniversary, graduation, wedding or baby shower or any of the numerous holidays, decorations can be a big part of celebrating.

Special celebrations around here and for family usually give me a good reason for crafting something.  For the past few years one of my "go to" decoration have been banners.

For this months post, I will share many of my handcrafted banners.  In my own house there are at least three great spots to display banners.  There is at least one banner that is always hanging somewhere in the house.  So for any celebration make it a "Banner Day" for part of your decorating theme.

Start with decorative papers in any suitable color theme, use dies if they are available to you, pre-cut purchased shapes or design your own templates and hand cut shapes. Use purchased letters in sticker form or in chipboard for making your statement. Expand on materials to use and combine several different type to create more interesting banners - embellish and decorate away!  Start with a banner and expand on to other decorations for your themed celebrations.
