I made a banner and placemat for my grandfather's upcoming 85th birthday party.
I used Momenta's cardstock from PA-2376 Pastel, PA-2375 Bright and PA-1411 Silver Distress papers to make all the parts of the banner. They are connected with fishing line.
The balloons are from the 'Something to Celebrate' cartridge. Each letter was cut with Cricut's 'Opposites Attract' cartridge
and has a star accent,
with some Diamond Stickles bling,
a party themed brad from the Eyelet Outlet,
and eyelets on each side,
to help connect all the pieces on the banner.
The placemat is just for my grandfather to since it's his birthday. The main paper is from Momenta's PA-1991 'All Through The Year' stack. Then I used the Cricut's 'Something to Celebrate' cartridge to make all the party themed die-cuts in the corners. An EK Success punch goes around the outside with some Diamond Stickles in between all the stars.
Now you know people are going to turn over the placemat to look at the back. We all do it, we're nosy. So for a fun surprise I used Momenta's PA-1305 Wild Animal paper. It's a fun, upbeat and the colors match the other items for the party. I think everyone will be pleasantly surprised.
Stay tuned for something else I made for the party too.
