Happy Almost Fall Crate Paper Fans! Katie Ehmann here today with some quick and easy birthday party decorations. My youngest daughter turned four this month, and even though we celebrated at home with close family, I wanted to do something special for her big day! She's a girly girl, so Maggie Holme's Flea Market collection worked perfectly for some cute, but simple decor. First, I created a fun banner using an assortment of patterned papers, my Silhouette Cameo, some American Crafts gold glitter ribbon and my sewing machine. I simply cut various banner shapes in approximately 5 x 8 inch pieces, and machine sewed them to the gold glitter ribbon.
Next, I created a birthday crown for my little princess with patterned paper, my Silhouette Cameo, the same gold glitter ribbon, resin flowers, a stand-out embellishment and a number "4" chipboard piece, all from Flea Market. I sewed the ribbon along the bottom, assembled the crown and added the embellishments. Super easy, but she loved it!
Finally, I made a mini banner for the cake with a banner punch, patterned papers, my sewing machine and two wooden skewers. I punched the banners, sewed them together (making sure to leave long threads on each end) and then tied the threads to the skewers.
As you can see, my daughter loved her special handmade decorations and she had a wonderful 4th birthday!
