Today we went to a birthday party for a friend of my husband's family. What's not to love about a party? Since this was her 50th, I wanted to try something a bit different than a regular card - so I did a banner card. Originally there were going to be 50 cupcakes, but after cutting the 13 needed for the letters in Happy Birthday, I decided 50 was going to take a little too much time. Then, since we were giving her a gift card, I decided this morning to make a matching "bag" to go with it. I think the reason I liked the banner card outcome was the silver mirror paper I used for the cupcake wrappers. It really made a BIG difference in the end!
So many fun projects coming up! Enjoy your weekend!
