Birthday Name Banner

What is better than to see your name strung across a room?  I think we all like see our names posted in honor whether we admit it or not!

I had fun creating this banner for Josh's 2nd birthday!

I used a foam star to trace star patterns onto scrapbook paper

Than I used a class to trace a circle to stick on top of the star.

Using my Sizzix, I cut out all the letters for Joshua's name from more scrapbook paper

I used Mod-podge to attach the letters to another circle made from more scrapbook paper.

Than I used glitter glue on the letters to make them sparkle
And here is the final product
As you can see, I punched holes in the star and used twine to string it up.  I placed a dot of hot glue on the twine to hold the star in place.

I also hot glued buttons and ribbon on each star to add to it.

I might not have a mantel but I have a great entertainment center :-)

I found this great idea at Oopsey Daisy, one of my favorite crafters.  For her full tutorial click here
