Birthday Sundaes Challenge # 6

Hello Crafters,
It's Sunday and you know what that means...a new challenge over on Birthday Sundaes. This week it is a challenge for sure, it's a Special Birthday Challenge! You must a create birthday gift packaging, party favor, invitation, cupcake toppers/wrappers, banners, treat boxes, etc.

I have never made a banner before and decided to make one for a friend's little girl who was turning two this weekend. All in all the banner was super easy to make (a little time consuming but fun). Taking pictures of it was a whole other story however. It was a nightmare! I used a ton of glitter which my camera hates, the entire thing was the length of a wall and really high when we hung it and to top it all off the lighting was terrible. But I did what I could and I think I took enough to give you a good idea. I am glad I took some before we hung it! Although, like I said my camera hates glitter so I couldn't use the flash. All the details will be listed below the picture.
Thanks for stopping by!

I love your Birthday banner. It is soooo cute. My son's Birthday is coming up and I think something like this would be so much cuter then a store bought banner.

Great job on your first banner Tara! I LOVE all the cute cupcakes and butterflies! They go very nicely with the soft colors and the glitter! I'm sure the Birthday Girl (and her Mom) loved it!

Wow, your banner is awesome. Your friend's daughter is going to LOVE it? So girly and divalicious. So when is your "Big Day"? It is always nice to be so crafty, it will save you some money in the long run if you have the time to create things yourself!!!!
